“Watch Your Speed”, “Mind Your Surroundings”, “Be Careful on the Roads”. Everyone has heard the cautionary tales about the dangers of the road, and the calls for safe driving that come along with them. Yesterday around 4:00 PM, a 12 year old girl was killed after being hit by a car when crossing over Cedar Road in Chesapeake.
While the details of the crash haven’t been made public, this horrible tragedy is yet another reminder of the aforementioned dangers, and should serve as a reminder to all drivers that something horrible like this can happen when you least expect it.
Events like this are what the calls for safe driving are all about. Please understand the dangers of the roadways, and stay aware and alert at all times when driving. Our thoughts go out to the friends and family of this little girl.
