Tragic Incident Spurs Traffic Safety Upgrades in Enderby
October 31st 2023
In response to a devastating incident earlier this year, the Province of British Columbia has begun upgrading traffic safety measures at the intersection of Canyon Road and Highway 97A in Enderby British Columbia.
The move follows the tragic death of Harry Jones Jr., who lost his life on July 1 after being struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross the road.
Eyewitnesses recounted the horrifying incident to ExNews.net, revealing that despite Mr. Jones pressing the pedestrian cross button, which activated a flashing amber pedestrian crossing light, and diligently checking both ways for vehicles, he was struck and killed by a passenger vehicle.
The incident shocked the community, prompting swift action from local authorities.
To enhance pedestrian safety, traffic signals and a crosswalk are now being installed at the fatal intersection of Highway 97A and Canyon Road.
Hopefully, the upgrades will prevent similar accidents in the future, ensuring the safety of both pedestrians and drivers.
During the installation period, travelers in the area should expect traffic delays.
The construction is slated to be completed in several weeks, marking a significant step toward enhancing safety for all road users in Enderby.
