Scene of the Accident

I happened to see the aftermath of this crash last evening at the intersection f Lawrence and Walnut. Police had traffic blocked in all directions forcing motorists (including me) to take the side streets to get around the accident scene.

Recently, the city put up flashing warning signs as you approach the intersection cautioning drivers they are approaching a high accident intersection. I don’t think I’ve ever seen signs like that before, although I suppose they’re a good idea as far as they go. But why not make the intersection safer rather than just warning us it’s dangerous? That intersection has been consistently among the most dangerous in the city for as long as I can remember. Why not do something about it already?
