    I have drove by this location several times and people are in that area waiting for the STS bus. The county needs to change and/or move this pick up place to another location that will be safer for people.I pray that this person is ok.

    A Pedestrian was hit in Lexington Park what a shocker that is. They walk out in the street trying to get hit all the time. Driving through there is a treat anytime of the day and the bigger the vehicle the more they step out.

    Don’t walk in the road… especially when it’s dark out.

    Hope she recovers and the driver is found.
