U-turn Accident Possibilities Increase with Summer Travel

Although Sulphur Springs Police observed traffic along Hillcrest Drive earlier Monday morning, by noon Monday an accident in front of Grocery Supply Company continue concerns regarding U-turns made on the State Highway 19/Hillcrest Drive roadway. KSST News observed the accident that occurred as a semi-tractor trailer attempted a U-turn but failed to notice the pickup traveling in the left lane.

Drivers, both semi-tractor trailer and passenger vehicles, fail to take note of and obey signage posted both the north and south service roads seek the shortest distance available before attempting a U-turn that will return them to their desired route.

With summer traffic increasing the volume of vacation and tourist traffic, all motorists, especially local residents, should take more precautions on all roadways and especially Highway 19.
