On January 13th, 2012, 12-year old Dashane Santana, was killed in an automobile accident.. Dashane was crossing Delancey Street at Clinton Street at around 2:36 pm after school, when a minivan traveling towards the Williamsburg Bridge struck and killed her. This has been a great loss not just to the family but to the community as well. We are petitioning Mayor Michael Bloomberg and our Community Board representatives to aid us in putting up more children crossing slow down signs near the bridge. We are also requesting they install an overhead walkway.(If Possible). Or add crossing guards to assure the safe crossing of children on both sides of the Williamsburg Bridge crossing area. By signing this you are helping us to fight to save lives in order to prevent what happened to Dashane or anyone else's loved one's. Thanks for your soupport.
