I'm not familiar with that intersection. What is wrong with it that makes a problem? Or could it be bad drivers?
Every year we see accidents where the 198 turns off the 33. When I used to live in Black Rock, I traveled that route everyday. Never a problem. Because I slowed down before the turn and am a careful driver.
Sometimes it's not the intersection that needs fixing it's the drivers who need fixing.

This is so terriable.couldn't the driver see there was an accident ahead and slow down and look for the ones involved in the accident?I would have been careful and looking for the drivers of the cars involved in the accident.this seams like a real big DUH.?

The driver that hit Danny didn't use his turn signal. My uncle almost got hit in that same spot the next day putting flowers by the spot of the accident.

Danny was a great man. ALWAYS helping others. The same thing he was trying to do when he got hit. It's pretty pathetic that others would imply that it was his fault. The driver was probably drunk and he deserves to go to prison whether he was drunk or not. Carelessness is the number one reason for accidents.
For all those who have sent condolences, thank you very much.
We hope that he will always be remembered as a good man.

since you travel this road everyday, you know it better than me.
Slowing down and using turn signals are great advice. Everybody should be doing that, no matter where they are driving.

I ask why didnt that the driver that hit him didn't use his turn single make the news' wasn't that a part of the tragedy that people can learn from it.

This has been a terrible few days. THere is certainly a lot of pain going around. It was my nephew who was killed in the tractor trailer/train accident in Silver Springs. I wanted to express my condolences to Mr. Case's family and friends and pray that God will grant us all the strength to recover from the loss of our loved ones. It is painful for us, but I hope and pray our loved ones are at peace.

Along with watching your speed and using your signals, what about maintaining a safe distance from other vehicles (safety zone)? If you hit the car in front of you, you are either following too closely, or not paying enough attention. You never know if the car in front of you has working brake lights.

you're right Outsider,
in fact, I think all drivers should get a new road test every 10 years. We tend to pick up bad driving habits as we go on. I'd bet 90% of drivers that have been driving 20 years or more would fail a current road test.(myself included).

I've know the Case's for at least 45 years. Went to school with all of them. Danny was a good guy. Would always help those in need. He did what any of us would have done, make sure the other party is okay. I grew up in Little Valley, know the intersection well. I've never had a problem, but we all need to slow down, be aware of our surroundings and then proceed. My deepest sympathy goes out to the Case family.

My family appreciates your comment. We are currently circulating petitions to LV and surrounding towns in hopes to get the intersection changed to a "T". We are also asking for your voices to reach out to people of position such as Joe Giglio, Kathy Young, Catt Co Sherriffs Dept, NYS DOT etc... Thanks again....
