    Please put a red light there. Wouldn’t it make sense? I have also been in a wreck there.

    Please let is know more when you can

    Thank you so much to the person who tried to wake my father up. He was so kind. If the roles were reversed he would of done the same. He once helped pull a family out of an upturned RV, and he even lost part of a finger helping an elderly couple on the side of the road in a separate incident. I hope this horrible tragedy leads to a light at this intersection, because this was a pointless sad event.
