I heard the daughter (whom was 3 years old) passed away.

I just heard from a NJ12 reporter that confirmed that the little girl did in fact die.

My heart goes out to that little girl, her mother and her family. Its a very dangerous intersection (Central and Durham) in which the vehicles turning make blindspots for those passing. I actually think a good solution would be to make the lanes narrow so that cars dont go around turning cars.

If Metuchen can afford a cop to sit next to the fire station every morning to watch for speeders you would think they could afford to put a cop there in the morning and the afternoon to help people across the street.

Until ONE week ago, there was a crossing guard at that intersection every weekday morning. They just moved him to another intersection. He did a very good job of keeping walkers safe. They need to bring back that crossing guard.
