      Tulsa, OK

The intersection has been the site of several fatal crashes over the past couple of years. The most recent one being a dear friend of mine Lilia Lee. She was involved in a fatal car accident that led to her death in the early hours of Saturday, October  15th, 2011. In 2009, the Oklahoma Department of Transportation announced it would be putting an overpass at the intersection, but nothing has been implemented as of yet.

      The last girl to die here was a very good friend of mine she left behind 2 teenage daughters due to this intersection...its a sad sad deal that people shouldnt have to go through if it can be stopped...i would like to see this overpass go up sooner than later before we lose anymore lives.

      I'm a Firefighter/EMT that has responded to many fatal accidents at this intersection including many of the accidents mentioned by family members in this petition, including one of the most recent, Ms. Lee's. This intersection is poorly lit, as well as 106th and 96th street norths intersections, but is far busier. I've lived here all my life and will drive out of my way to take the overpass over 86th street. It's very hard to judge distances for some at highway speed, and ever harder when it's difficult to see. Something needs to be done NOW.

      I cross at that intersection twice a day going to work and home - I pray I will not be the next of the hundreds of people who have lost their life there and pray something is done there before anyone else dies
