Your Turn: Children Killed While Fishing

This week's “Your Turn” segment goes to Jeremy Montelius. Montelius is one of hundreds of people on our Facebook page who commented about the tragic accident that killed two young children in Ascension Parish last summer. The driver who hit those children pled no contest this week to charges of careless operation and received a $175 fine. In his words: My wife and I drive Bluff Road every day and it still blows my mind why the parish or the state doesn't put up any guard rails there. All it takes is a split second or even a half of a tire and boom there is no shoulder there. A guard rail would protect drivers and pedestrians. It was an accident. It's truly sad what happened, but it could have happened to anyone. There needs to be a guard rail. That's Jeremy Montelius's turn. Now it's your turn.
