    I saw this accident on the way home from my sons school. It is a terrible intersection and I have witnessed that type of truck running the red light at that same intersection because they are going so fast they cannot stop. The police in that area need to enforce stricter speed limits for those types of trucks before someone is killed by one of them.

    So you can get a speeding ticket and complain even more?

    These truckers think they own the road and everyone should get out of the way. It’s ridiculous and something seriously needs to be done before someone gets seriously hurt or killed like Cathy said.

    Know that anytime you cross over Rt 66 at that intersection you must stop and look for people running that light. I have lived in Delmont for 30 years and that intersection was safer years ago, than it is today because people trust their green light. I have almost been hit several times while trusting my green light- and each time I was never the first to cross. You’d think that by being the third, fourth or fifth car crossing that the drivers on 66 would notice their red light………
