God bless her. You can't see with all those freaking trees planted out there.

She was traveling East bound on 98. Cause of wreck was a person going North on Beaver Dam and didn't stop at stop sign. No tree interference!

How can there be no tree interference? They block your view when you are trying to cross on beaver dam road. It is a dangerous intersection on a hill anyway. You don't need to block even the smallest area with a stupid tree. You must be a genius buddy.

The individual that caused the wreck had no trees between her at the stop sign and the outside lane Ms. Howell was traveling toward the East. There is a distance of 5' max. The wreck, not accident, was the result of an individual that couldn't take a couple seconds to properly check if it was safe to cross the East bound lanes to reach the median.

To citizen of concern , before you speak get your facts straight . Your going by what you heard . Nobody ran a stop sign ! So if you wasnt there you to see it then dont talk about it . Like the other person said you cant see over those hills .

Let's try this again. The person going north on Beaver Dam Rd. has a requirement to stop at the stop sign and make sure it is SAFE to cross two lanes of traffic where the speed limit is 65 MPH going in an easterly direction. The person going north ran pulled out into the traffic lane and hit the front bumper of the vehicle traveling in said easterly direction. No, I didn't see the wreck. Did she intentionally pull out into traffic to wantonly cause the potential death of a person(s)? I don't think so. Was she at fault for the wreck? Yes. The bottom line is hundreds of vehicles use that intersection daily. It is the worst intersection on the bypass. It does have visibility issues (hill and trees). However, blaming a wreck on those stationary objects, instead of taking responsibility for a your own actions, is a piss poor way to do things. Classic it is always someone elses fault, I can do no wrong mentality.
