LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - "We don't even really let our children in the front yard for that reason," said Tia Matthews.
Matthews and her family have lived along Hume Road for about two years. And in that time, they've seen several bad accidents.
"My biggest fear is that somebody's gonna end up in my house. We have several trees in our front yard, but I still worry. And my children's bedrooms are in the front part of the house," Matthews added.
Earlier today there was a single car accident just beyond the curve near the Matthews' home.
Police say the driver was driving away from Winchester Road when he lost control, hitting several trees before coming to a rest in the ditch.
And all of this happened just yards away from the site of a fatal accident that happened exactly one month ago today.
The Matthews' are searching for a solution, and called their city council representative, but haven't received a response.
"I think they don't really understand what's at stake. We've had several accidents within the past few years. It's a bad curve just past our house, not a lot of warning signs even," said Matthews.
She says speeding cars have been clocked by police sitting in her driveway at speeds near seventy miles per hour.
We're told the driver of the red car was taken to UK Hospital to be treated, but that he should be ok.
