Thank you for consistently being our lone reporters on local info. I live in Summer Lake and this is the 4th or 5th major accident around this intersection in just a few months. Please, dear people, be better drivers and DONT drive under the influence.
There were 5 accident today on or around there I know one was a fatality. So sad.
I agree with Kathryn’s statement, that so many fatal accidents happen on this stretch of road. What is needed to make you all drive safer? Why do people continue to drive under the influence, when we have Lyft, Uber, etc, etc. And most important, why the heck doesn’t everyone SLOW DOWN. Speed is a major factor i feel in these recent accidents, and the severity of their aftermath.
