New Guardrall Installed At Accident Prone Intersection

Local

A new guardrail has been installed in Evansville to help prevent serious accidents.

The rail is intended to keep cars from driving into a property at the intersection of Newburgh Road and Washington Avenue.

Several accidents have taken place at this intersection in a short period of time.

Last winter, a woman speeding away from police ended up in the family’s yard.

The suspect hit a utility pole, several trees, even the family’s parked vehicle.

Shortly after this accident, new reflective warning signs were installed.

Now, the street maintenance department has installed a metal guardrail.
