Once again, GREAT WORK by your response team! Perhaps the county should look into the reason why SO MANY accidents happen at this intersection. This is the THIRD this year. There is a dip in the road, making it almost impossible to see oncoming cars. Cars have to pull out into the intersection before proceeding. A four way stop is needed. Thankfully, no one has been killed. Thank you all again, for your hard work and professionalism!
