The death of a Northeast El Paso woman was an accident waiting to happen. That's what neighbors are saying tonight after the victim was killed at what they describe as a dangerous intersection.
The deadly accident happened on Roanoke and Joe Herrera.
Neighbors say drivers run stop signs there all the time.
Yesterday police said a driver blew through two stop signs including the one at that intersection before she T-boned another SUV.
That accident killed 45-year-old Sharon Lindsey, and neighbors say her death should have never happened.
"People run this stop sign constantly," said neighbor Teresa Garcia. "They need another stop sign here. People speed, they don't pay attention to the stop sign, there's always an accident on this street."
"This street is notorious for accidents and that's the thing," said neighbor Andy Garcia. "People go through here at high rates of speed."
Neighbors we spoke to said if there was a stop sign on Joe Herrera, Sharon Lindsey and her husband would have been stopped when the other car ran through the intersection. And that could have saved her life.
We'll let you know if the city puts up the stop signs.
