  1. This light gets run multiple times each day! When you are a tenth of a mile away, yellow does not mean gas it and go. It is an awful intersection.

  2. Cimonpure, “sited” is spelled with a “c”. Other than that I totally agree with you.

  3. I don’t agree , this young child might have been trying to Get/ reach for something . This is not the kids falit. Things happen when people don’t think .

  4. Some things happen on accident. She may have been putting on her seatbelt or not. We will never know. But I hope everyone is okay.💖💖Hope for the best for everyone in the accident!😩

  5. If I have kids in the car, they are always belted! If they undo their belts just to “test” me, I pull over and stop the vehicle and wait until they belt up again!
