    the driver of the Toyota better call the Cochran firm because the pick-up obviously has no insurance.

      The pickup truck does have insurance, and the driver of that truck is well known to many Lex Park citizens. Don’t assume. You know what that does.

      I thought it to be common practice to cut the battery cable. Not about when the battery is hanging out of the vehicle by said cable?

    This is one of the worst intersections in Lexington Park. Numerous times when I travel from Forest Park crossing 235 to get to Hermanville Road, the oncoming traffic making left hand turns to go north on 235, do not yield the right of way. I have had and or seen many close calls

      Are the stoplights at that intersection harder to interpret, or are ones traveling down there just more incompetent?

    So why’d the Prius cross the double yellow line?

    • Mouse on March 13, 2019 at 1:53 pm

      maybe they didn’t, could have been pushed across the double yellow lines.

    Just another day on the smash-em-up derby that is Route 235 in good ole’ SOMD!

    Maybe one day, after enough people have died, law enforcement and the commissioners will do something about it.

      You do know it’s the State Highway Administration that decides what to do about a problem intersection, right? Educate yourself before making a comment. Keeps you from ‘looking the fool’.

      • The REAL Truth on March 15, 2019 at 11:17 am

        You do know that the SHA does not monitor every single intersection in the state 24/7, right? You do know the SHA relies on input from local law enforcement and governments about accident and problem rates in order to make determinations on a course of action… right?

        Maybe YOU need the education before trying to go high and right and looking like an idiot!

        • The truth on March 15, 2019 at 9:34 pm

          … because SHA does not automatically get informed of the accidents… it’s not part of the reporting process is it? Stop typing before you hurt yourself.

          • The REAL Truth on March 17, 2019 at 4:30 pm

            Looks like there were about 7 or 8 more accidents upon posting this. I guess your way is working… huh? You keep believing there junior! I continue to believe that enough isn’t being done by ANYONE!

          • The truth on March 19, 2019 at 8:45 pm

            Have you made calls to SHA? Have you wrote to SHA? Have you visited any offices(SHA, County Commissioners, etc.)? Or just whine here in the comments section, sport? That’s what I thought.

    Hopefully all are ok.

    The roads at that intersection are terrible. I’m not surprised.

    • The REAL Truth on March 13, 2019 at 11:09 am

      Roads are terrible?? How? I drive that section of road every day and there is absolutely nothing wrong with the roads, the signs, the traffic lights, etc. The problem is the people driving those roads. They have gotten used to ignoring the signs and lights and doing what they please. As long as there is no one who will tell them otherwise (ummmm… LEO) then they will continue to do so.
      The sheriffs/MSP won’t really do anything until enough people have died as a result. Look at the history and you will see that I am correct.

      • Wiggy on March 15, 2019 at 4:50 am

        Autonomous vehicles will help, the Sheriff’s department can’t be there 24/7 to stop idiocracy. When I lived south of base, there was a trend to pass people on the shoulder while they’re doing 55+. That’s just stupid drivers.

    Maybe it’s SHA allowing a ‘thining of the heard’.
