Cyclist struck by car goes home

The Cincinnati Enquirer

        It was going-home day Tuesday for Joshua Kostreva, 12, of Symmes Township, partially paralyzed nearly two months ago when a driver struck him while he was riding his bicycle.

        The Sycamore Junior High School seventh-grader wheeled out of a Children's Hospital Medical Center, headed to a balloon-filled car for the ride home.

        The driver in the March 12 accident, Mark Waters, 26, of Lebanon, faces a felonious assault charge.

        Mr. and Mrs. Kostreva are pushing for tougher penalties for repeat drunken-driving offenders; Mr. Walters has been convicted five times for driving under the influence.
