Family Fights for Guardrail
SPRINGFIELD -- A Springfield family is pleading with the city.
The family of 12-year-old Kayla Mongold, who was hit and killed by a speeding driver, is asking the city to put up a guardrail around the curve where she was hit and killed.
It was two years ago when Springfield Police were on the scene.
A man fleeing from an officer, sped around the corner on Murray Street. He hit and killed 12-year-old Kayla Mongold.
"The last words from her was 'bye mom see you later love you,'" said Gloria Mongold, Kayla's mother.
Kayla was walking home along the side of the road with her best friend.
Her family is now asking city commissioners to put up a guardrail around the curve.
"If there had been a guardrail in the first place, my daughter would still be alive," said Gloria, "It's just not a safe curve, and the city needs to realize that and they need to do something about it. There's going to be another person hit and killed there."
And Tuesday night, Gloria let her voice be heard.
"I came down here today to let you guys be aware that I started a petition to get a guardrail put up" she said to city commissioners.
The City of Springfield's Mayor Warren Copeland made sure to address the grieving mother's request.
"Trying to figure out how you can turn it into doing something positive and to keep it happening to another family is a sign of them trying to find a positive way out of a very very tragic situation, so we need to do what we can to be helpful," said Mayor Copeland.
Those were words from the city that Gloria and her family have been waiting two long years to hear.
"No other family should have to bury a child because somebody lost control of a car and went up there, all over a curve," said Gloria.
City leaders say they will look into what can be done to the curve on Murray Street.
