Dangerous Intersection Concerns Residents

The Old Tyler road - west Austin intersection in Nacogdoches was the scene for another deadly accident where Kendall Pakkala lost her life. Pakkala was a passenger in the car when authorities say the driver drove into oncoming traffic, crashing into an 18 wheeler.

Residents believe the fatal accident should be a wake up call to authorities to put a traffic signal at the dangerous intersection.

"It's like they don't care because when police come to the wrecks it's like they don't care as many times as they have had wrecks there. It just seems like something needs to be done. They need to put a red light there," says Kevin Mitchell.  

The driver of the car only suffered minor injuries in the deadly accident.
