Third accident at the intersection in very few weeks. Unfortunately one man lost his life in one of the accidents. The intersection is dangerous and needs flashing lights to warn drivers of the stop signs. I have contacted the local engineers at Will County and urge other residents to do the same before someone else is seriously injured or killed. In the meantime please take caution at the intersection.
