Davenport Death Prompts Road Questions

Posted: Updated:

 

Davenport West senior Skylar Kraft loses his life in a car crash along Kimberly Road.
     
That happened yesterday morning but today police say they have seen 53 accidents over the past three years near that same location and some residents question whether the stretch of road is safe and if authorities should do something about it.

"Because of that dip in the road, it's hard to judge how fast the cars really are coming," Angie Joseph said. "There's like a blind spot."

Police say the D.O.T. already made more than one and a half million dollars worth of safety improvements to the road in 2009, even reducing the speed limit.
    
They are still investigating yesterday's crash to see if any other changes should be made.
