    I was in a car accident a year ago. The other guys fault. Wasn’t paying attention. And unfortunately people don’t understand you need to pay full attention when driving to your own vehicle and the other drivers. Sadly from me being outta work for that long my daughter and i have suffered tremendously financially, having to move, losing out a lot bc someone didn’t pay attention to what they were doing. Thank god we weren’t severely injured. My thoughts and prayers are with the people involved and their families! !! ♡

    I was involved in an accident at the same intersection back in June of last year. The other driver blew right through the stop sign. They need to advertise the stop sign more. Paint it on the ground. Anything thing to help to prevent people from getting hurt.

    need to install stop signs all around south scranton or have cops sit by the intersections..always an accident down here..accident was caused by a car running the stop sign and hitting the truck
