Students Call for Roadway Changes Following Fatal Alabama Car Accident

Students Call for Roadway Changes Following Fatal Alabama Car Accident

Following an Alabama Auto Accident that left a 17-year-old girl dead and her sister seriously injured, the teens’ peers are beginning to pressure state lawmakers to make changes to the intersection where the accident occurred.

Reports indicate that on the morning of April 30, the victims pulled out of a gas station near Alabama Highways 157 and 101. As the vehicle entered the roadway, it was struck by an oncoming tractor-trailer. The impact of the collision almost instantly claimed the young driver’s life. Meanwhile, the deceased driver’s sister was left seriously injured. She was rushed to a local hospital and remains in critical condition.

In the wake of the accident, students who attend the same school as the victims have begun a campaign aimed at improving the intersection where the crash occurred. Every student at the school is writing a letter to state lawmakers explaining their position of wanting the changes made to the intersection. One student even started a petition to be signed.

According to 48 News, the students are not only calling for a traffic signal to replace a flashing caution light at the intersection, they are also asking that the speed limit be dropped on the highway.

The Alabama Personal Injury Attorneys with Norris Injury Lawyers understand how devastating a loss of a life to a car accident can be. That’s why the firm is hopeful the students are successful in their mission to make the intersection safer for everyone.
