CENTRAL, LA (WAFB) - Driver's headaches in Central may ease after DOTD put a traffic signal at a dangerous intersection.

The intersection is where Greenwell Springs Road and Sullivan Road in Central. Manager Lyne Ross said before the Central Thruway there were probably three or four accidents a month.

“It wasn't just fender benders. It was major accidents,” said Ross.

David Barrow with the city said it wasn't just cars getting into wrecks.

“Last year two large trucks a 18-wheeler and a large delivery truck got into an accident because one of them failed to yield on the left turn,” said Barrow. “Also one night a couple of bikers got hit by people turning left in front of them here.”

People are hoping with those days are behind them.
