I drove by this accident this morning on my way from Baldwin to Lawrence. It wasn't exactly at the intersection but down Hwy 56 a few feet past the new overpass, just about where the service road is. I'm glad to hear there were only minor injuries and nothing serious.

It seems like since they made that intersection a four-way stop the number of accidents has declined.

I went through this intersection the other day coming North from Ottawa. There was a truck and trailer driving west from Baldwin towards Overbrook. They did not stop at all - never slowed down - nothing. They barreled through the intersection at 60+ miles per hour. Thank goodness that I saw them coming but I was concerned about the people south-bound towards Ottawa because they were not able to see the truck coming. It is a dangerous intersection.

The intersection is safe. It's the drivers who aren't!
