Dangerous Decisions Lead To Fatal Accidents That Bring Warning To Others

For the second time in two weeks, a pedestrian was killed while trying to cross the Loop.

13-year-old Ryan Grimm was on his way to school when he was hit on the South Loop yesterday    and it was just 2 weeks ago Joshua Tatum tried to run across the West Loop when he was hit and killed.

Police say these recent tragedies provide a crucial reminder.  "Those are very very dangerous areas obviously with the high speed traffic areas that you have on some areas of the Loop at 65 and the Interstate at 65. You know distances close very rapidly at those speeds an your judgement of how much time you ahve is greatly impaired and it's illegal." said Sgt. Ronnie Sowell.

Signs are clearly posted along the Loop and the Interstate warning pedestrians not to cross. Also, Ronnie Sowell says the LPD will probably start a zero tolerence policy for people trying to cross the Loop or I-27.
