    That’s a fire truck. This is at Hwy 29 and Hwy 97 as the story says.

    Well, that sure looks like a building to me, there past the accident truck. Those square things look like storefront windows. If it was at 29 and 97, Tom Thumb ( or 97) would be in that frame. Those don’t look like the traffic lights at 29 and 97.- there’s no turn lane light. And at 29 and 97, there’s nothing just north of the traffic lights, like there is there. That looks like down at the drug store/thrift store to me.

    Some pitiful Drivers out there.. Ive used this intersection safely for 30 yrs . Everyone else can too if they pay attention & take their time.

    Install a red light camera. Fines from that one red light could probably fund high speed internet for the rural folks.

    I live off Crabtree. I sit at that light after it turns green because the people coming south on 29 do not stop. 4 days in a row this has happened. If I went when it turned green I would have been hit. Cops needs to sit at Tom Thumb and watch just how many run that light.

    Take guns away. They still get them and kill people. War on drugs. People still get them. Set speed limits, people still speed. Put stop signs, people run them, put a red light, accidents happen people still run it. When is everyone going to stop blaming the intersection and take responsibility to the fact people speed, pass, text and drive, and dont pay attention.

    Boy, those traffic lights really have stopped accidents at that intersection. People do not pay attention to those at all. Failing to yield right away due to in a hurry is the real problem

    I can understand accidents during the day, Heading south on 29 the traffic light is extremely hard to see what color it is until its almost too late to stop comfortably. At night much easier. Speed needs to be 45 or below, from the light until passing the diner. When the light becomes operational at Scotts Pharmacy there will be many more wrecks.

    They need to put a traffic light there. that would solve all the accidents problems.
