CITY STATEMENT ON FATALITY AT SOUTH & MICHIGAN STREETS
The City’s deepest condolences and prayers go out to the family of the child struck and killed by a vehicle at South Street this morning. We are all grieving this tragic loss in our community.
The circumstances of today’s accident are still under active investigation. The Mayor has requested that a review of information about the incident, and the conditions at the intersection where it took place, be presented to him by the end of the day.
The City has received inquiries today about changes to traffic signals at the intersection where the incident occurred. The intersection was part of a traffic study in 2015 which recommended the removal of a then-existing traffic signal based on vehicle and pedestrian counts. The signal was subsequently deactivated pending further review.
