Pair Of Deadly Car Accidents Prompt Offcials To Check Road Safety

Two deadly car accidents within a few weeks at the same spot in Floyd County prompt transportation officials to evaluate ways to make the road safer.

Police say the accidents on U.S. 23 at the Town Branch Road intersection were almost identical.

The crashes killed Michele Sparkman and 8-year-old Seth Lafferty.

Now engineers are studying the spot.

Crews are mapping all the crashes and the causes on that stretch within the last three years to figure out the best way to improve it.

Officials say a traffic light and median barriers are a couple of ideas they are considering.
