Here is a list of accidents compiled from FOIL requests to multiple agencies. Some of them only have records going back to 2006, some don’t keep records and others said that because of HIPPA laws, they couldn’t give me info. I didn’t ask for names, just accident calls. I am sure there are even MORE incidents here as well as the agencies that got back to me had COMPLETELY different lists. If YOUR accident isn’t listed, please let me know.
My accident is highlighted in RED. I came out of mine with a traumatic brain injury that changed my life forever. What I am looking for now is victim impact statements. I would like to compile a stack of letters to get the attention of anyone and everyone that has something to do with getting proper signage/lights/paint/insert your idea here to make this intersection safer before someone gets killed (if someone has been killed there, I have no knowledge).
Residents who live on that corner are also encouraged to write a statement about how much carnage they have witnessed throughout the years.
It’s going to take a stack of letters about how the accident impacted the victims and their families.
- How extensive were your injuries?
- Who hit you?
- Did you end up with lasting PTSD
- How long did it take to recover
- How much damage to your vehicle
- How did this affect your family
I’m going to just assume that anyone that had an accident there was hit by someone running the stop sign. If it was something else, please put it in your statement.
Please send your impact statement to me here: Julie@thenewsteader.com
Together maybe we can get this issue resolved, and make this horrible spot safer for everyone! Many voices have much more power than just one. Let’s turn up the heat! — -JAP-
