95 percent of ancient Ohio was forested. But centuries ago there were also small regions of prairie. Tall grasses and wildflowers were part of the prairie ecology and so were bison. Researchers near Columbus are trying to reestablish a prairie / bison ecosystem.
Toddler Killed After Motorized Bike Pulled Into Street
Columbus police say a toddler was killed and two more children were seriously hurt late Wednesday when the motorized bike they were riding collided with a pickup truck.
The accident reportedly happened on Taylor Ave, near I-670 on the North Side as the children were pulling out of an alley into a street.
The boy killed was identified as two-year-old Deandre Pruitt.
The 11-year-old driving the motorized bike and a 9-year-old passenger were hospitalized with serious injuries. The truck driver was unharmed and is not expected to face charges.
