City Modifies Stop Signs After Georgia Woman Crashes into Home
AUBURN, ME. – According to an online news story reported at wmtw.com, a city has made some modifications to the stop signs at an intersection after a woman from Georgia lost control in the intersection and crashed into a person’s home. The accident took place earlier this year, and the homeowner says the modifications are still not enough to prevent future accidents.*
One snowy day in January, a woman from Georgia was driving her car in the area of Gamage Avenue and Park Avenue in Auburn, Maine. The two avenues meet Lake Street at an intersection by a local pizza restaurant. The woman missed a stop sign and went careening into the front yard of a woman’s home. Luckily, no one was injured.
However, the homeowner told reporters that this was the second time her home had been hit, and she had witnessed so many incidents at the intersection that she installed cameras. The Georgia woman’s crash was clearly captured on the camera, along with countless other accidents and near-accidents, which the homeowner posts to social media.
The woman says she posts these videos hoping to raise awareness to the danger of the intersection and prompt officials to make safety improvements.
“This intersection is out of control,” the woman said. “I don’t even want to see someone die in my intersection.”
The City of Auburn placed reflective tags on the stop signs at the intersection after the January crash. The homeowner says these are not enough to prevent further accidents, and she wants to see changes to the intersection. However, city officials and the Maine Department of Transportation say this intersection is not the worst in Auburn and is not a priority for installation of a traffic light.
