Pittsboro Intersection

Posted December 31, 1997 12:00 a.m. EST

— What was once a small country crossroads near Pittsboro is now something that many call an accident waiting to happen.

Two serious accidents in one week have already happened at the intersection of Highway 15-501 and Pittsboro-Moncure Road. Nearby residents say the danger began when a connector road opened in October, bringing more traffic from Highway 64.

It's in the early hours of the morning when folks say that the intersection is the most dangerous.

Several concerned residents say they have called the Department of Transportation about the problem.
