At approximately 6:38 a.m., Sidney Police Officers and medics were dispatched to the 700 block of St Marys Ave on a report of an accident with injuries. Upon arrival, it was learned that a pedestrian, who was standing outside of the driver’s side of his vehicle on the east side of the roadway, was struck by a vehicle. The vehicle, driven by Devon M. Parsley, age 18, was southbound on St Marys Ave and crossed over into the northbound lane, striking the pedestrian, later identified as Randall S. Frisby, age 48, and his vehicle. Both vehicles were severely damaged. Both Parsley and Frisby were transported to Wilson Health E.R. and were later CareFlighted to Miami Valley Hospital. Their conditions are unknown at this time.
Accident re-constructionists from Sidney PD and Ohio State Patrol arrived at the scene to investigate.
Early investigation indicates that Frisby may have been scraping his windows when he was struck.
There were multiple occupants in Parsley’s vehicle who were not injured.
There is reason to believe that illegal drugs may have contributed to the cause of the accident and is being investigated at this time.
