It is a complete tragedy that this woman had to be killed at this EXTREMELY DANGEROUS intersection. We live right down the road from this intersection and we were hit a few years ago by a drunk driver who also failed to stop at the stop sign. After we were hit I pleaded with the county to put in 2 Stop Signs there and was told, "Sorry, we can't just install stop signs, we have to perform Traffic Studies." We live out here and we see ALL THE TIME people running the Stop Signs. The Cross traffic doesn't have to stop but the traffic on 500 has too. It is the ONLY intersection out here that the North/South traffic doesn't have to stop and it confuses people into thinking it is a 4-Way Stop. All of the residents out here have made it known to the county how dangerous this intersection is, yet NOTHING has ever been done.

Miami County Officials have KNOWN for years how dangerous his intersection is and yet they refused to install 2 Stop Signs that could have prevented this horrific accident from happening. Is Miami County that cheap they couldn't listen to the people who know this intersection better than anyone, and installed those 2 Stop Signs? My, god, how much are they, I will buy them and have them installed if it will save someone else's life. Miami County needs to be held accountable for knowing for many years how dangerous this intersection was and doing nothing to prevent these horrible accidents.

People needs to be a bit more cautious , especially if they don't know the area in which they are driving which the young driver did state. Cindy was a friend of mine and I'm torn right now between grief, anger and lots of questions for God. I know that young man and his family are probably suffering also. It's a sad situation for all involved. Yes,now that a good woman who was a loving, daughter, wife, mother and friend has lost her life, maybe the county will do something, you think??
