    What an awful intersection. Very wide, with no pedestrian button or signal. No wonder pedestrians are crossing away from the intersection. But such a wide road makes it hard to get all the way across before traffic arrives from beyond view.

    Is it just me or is it almost every week someone in Fayetteville gets hit by a car?

    What is it that people do not understand. If you walk out into a road without stopping, looking both ways and making sure no traffic is coming, YOU ARE GOING TO BE HIT. Even if you are in a crosswalk, you had better look and make sure a vehicle is not coming before you cross. The vehicle will always win.

    At least she was close to the hospital.
