Driver charged after vehicle accident on N. Fort Thomas Avenue

An accident in the 30 block of N. Fort Thomas Avenue yesterday at around 1:00 p.m. damaged city owned benches, planters, trees and trash receptacles right in front of Wesbanco Bank at 34 N. Fort Thomas Avenue.

According to witnesses, the driver sped from the scene.

"I don't know if they didn’t see the bend or how they ended up on the curb, but I just heard a loud noise and looked out the window and saw them backing off of the sidewalk very quickly. Then they backed out and sped away," said Marqi Lonaker, who works across the street from the crash scene.

"Thank God there wasn't anyone on the sidewalk."

Chasity Seldon, 43, was charged with leaving the scene of an accident. Her passenger, Charles Fulmer, 42, had outstanding warrants and was arrested on the scene.

Sergeant Adam Noe said he and Officer Adam Brown caught up with the driver and her passenger quickly and stopped them in the 2100 block of N. Fort Thomas Avenue.

Noe said that additional charges against the driver are pending.

"We were able to catch up with the driver very quickly after the accident because of how proactive people were calling the accident into dispatch," said Sgt. Noe. "We're very appreciative of that because it led to quick charges and an arrest."

Police said the cause of the accident was speed and inattention. At this time they do not believe the driver was under the influence.
