Friends remember mother who was hit and killed in west Columbus


A mother of two died after being struck by a vehicle in west Columbus Sunday night.

It happened just before 10 p.m. Sunday at the intersection of Eakin Road and Richardson Avenue.

A man was driving a Ford pickup truck eastbound on Eakin Road and as he approached South Richardson Avenue he collided with 45-year-old Jody Lindsay.

Lindsay was taken to Grant Medical Center where she later died.

“There was not a dull moment with her. She had a bubbly personality,” Amanda Seymour said of Lindsay.

Lindsay had two children, ages 15 and 18. Seymour said it’s still hard to believe her friend isn’t just a phone call away.

“She was fun loving, Christian, listened to her gospel music. She was full of life, would never turn anyone away,” she said.

There is no word yet on if the driver will be charged. The crash remains under investigation.
