Driver was not in the wrong

Posted: Tuesday, November 04, 2003

Mr. Cruz: Your article in Sunday's paper (Nov. 3) I find appalling. You are pointing the finger. The driver was on the green. Skyler was in the wrong place at the wrong time. It's a shame and devastating for Skyler's family and the driver. Both the driver and Skyler are the victims here.

I don't disagree that the intersection is dangerous, but who gives you the right to say the driver was in the wrong? There have been no citations to the driver. You are a hypocrite and maybe you should keep your mouth shut.

And to Amanda Hoffman: I can't agree with you more. I have one grown child with two grandchildren and one child at the high school. We all need to know bicycle safety as well as pedestrian safety. I am with you, so count me in.

I feel grateful that the community came together with this tragic accident. Juneau is a family and we all pull together in situations like this, and I dearly hope the state will do something about that dangerous intersection. Now that Skyler has been laid to rest we as a community need to figure out how to make that intersection safe. In the driver's and Skyler's family, God bless you all.
