    @ROOT “10 mile neighbor” is the person’s screen name on here. They weren’t referring to 10 Mile Road. Don’t get yourself worked up into a tizzy because you didn’t understand something it isn’t worth it. Kinda makes look like one of those folks that buys 244 rolls of toilet paper because of a cold.

    Who said anything about 10 mile?? N Tate school rd is in front of the Winn Dixie and dollar general store. There is NO red light there!

    MR REALITY, The article states the accident was at North Tate School Rd. The intersection referenced by fish21 is Tate School Road, which is a different intersection about one half mile South of the accident site.

    MR REALITY, I was referring to the Northescambia,com posting at the head of this page. I have not seen any other information.

    To fish21. You have identified a dangerous intersection, but the article said the pedestrian was hit farther north by the Winn Dixie and Dollar General. Both are bad places to try and cross hwy 29.

    There is a light there, but I have seen a few run across Hwy 29 going to the gas station. A man ran out in front of me last week while I was leaving the station. I was watching him, so I stopped and let him cross. Folks just wait the extra few minutes for the light to change. Be safe.
