DOT looking into East Rochester intersection

A young girl sprung to action after a car nearly went through a home in East Rochester. The girl started a petition to get a stop sign at Washington Street and West Avenue, but there's still no progress.

So what's the hold up? News10NBC took that question to the Department of Transportation.

The family tells us it's just a matter of time until another crash happens and someone is either killed or seriously injuring. On Friday, we found out the Department of Transportation is now looking at the intersection. Possible solutions are a stop sign or flashing lights, but that could take a while.

Angel Delmadoros says, "We hear bang, look out the window, and my boyfriend Ben says look, yet another one."

Angel Delmadoros and her kids have seen two car crashes outside their home at Washington Street and West Avenue in less than two weeks. most recently yesterday morning.
