BJF: Tragedy witnessed is reason to slow down, improve safety

Safety on Columbia sidewalks/crosswalks has been in the news for many months, debating and building to action, but not fast enough for some victims like this tragic death of the lady in Billy Joe Fudge's report below. I'm deeply grateful that he made time to put into words what he witnessed. Reading it chills me -- reliving it, putting it on paper, had to have been one of the hardest things he's ever done. Thank you for the blessing, Billy Joe, it may save a life going forward. City resident Mike Bell, traveling Burkesville Street in his motorized wheelchair, was the most recent victim just this month. Thankfully he is alive. He will be able to come home and lead for more action immediately. - Linda Waggener

By Billy Joe Fudge

In 1978 on a workday, I came to a stop on West Fortune Street to let a speeding car in the middle lane of Burkesville Street pass on its way to the Square. A semi-tractor trailer was setting at the crosswalk in the lane nearest to what is now Red Brick Studio.

As the speeding car passed in front of me I saw an elderly lady step from in front of the semi, crossing in the crosswalk toward the Bank of Columbia side of the square.
