    That is a horrible crosswalk where others have already been killed.It is really dark right there at night and drivers are more focused on the signal at Huntington.The city needs to put blinking lights there or this is going to keep happening.

    I have walked through this cross walk many many many of times and 70% of the time drivers do not look to see if someone is crossing and when they do see someone crossing some stop and some look at you like you are crazy for crossing apparently not aware of the california law that says you must stop.I happen to know Fred `cowboy`peterson and send him my best for a speedy recovery.get well soon cowboy…
