Neighbors Are Calling for Change After Woman Hit by Car
WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP -- Neighbors are calling for change after a grandmother of more than 30 kids was hit by a car in her own driveway.
Monday we showed you Sue Carter's story, and she's still in the hospital recovering.
We went out to her neighborhood on Clyo Road near Rooks Road in Washington Township to find speeders.
We didn't find any, but neighbors we spoke to say it's not just speeders that's the problem, but that the speed limit is just too high.
"We've had people come off the road and leave tire tracks through the grass, that's happened several times," said Donald Smith, has lived on Clyo Road for 26 years.
"I can't even tell you how many mailboxes I've seen taken out," said Wayne Lippy, who has lived on Clyo Road for 20 years.
"This is our third mailbox that we've had to replace," said Karen Drew, who has lived on Clyo Road for 10 years.
Several neighbors who live along this stretch of Clyo Road have had enough.
"The speed limit's way too high," said Drew.
Drew used to be an ER nurse and has had to respond to six accidents in her own front yard.
"I honestly keep gloves, boots and a flash light in my front closet to be ready to be a first responder here out front," said Drew.
Neighbors say the problem is this curve and the dip in the road makes it hard for drivers to stay in control.
"You're going around a curve and you're going up and you have danger with that, especially with speed," said Smith.
So we tested the speed limit out, we drove around the curve going 50 miles an hour and took the dip at the same speed.
We stayed in the lane, but it wasn't easy.
Neighbors say it's not easy for any driver going 50 miles an hour and the speed limit should be lowered.
"There's a lot of people that live on this road that have children, and it's scary," said Drew. "There's mailboxes right out on the road and yeah, it should be 25."
We also asked the Montgomery County Sheriff's Office just how many accidents have been reported on Clyo Road in the past five years.
We're told there's been 46 crashes and one fatality since 2009.
Neighbors say that's one too many.
"We have people that are just taking risks that should not be taken, it's not smart and it's not wise," said Smith.
We also spoke with the Montgomery County Engineer.
He says he hasn't heard of any concerns from the community, but is looking into the situation.
He also says, it might be worth having a speed study done out here once the construction on Clyo is finished at the end of the year.
