Huntington Beach, California Residents Beg City Council for Crosswalk Signal at Deadly Intersection


Residents who live in Huntington Beach, California near the intersection on Springdale Street and Croupier Drive say the intersection has been a dangerous crossing for many years. The danger was only highlighted when seven month old Ruby Rose Gould was struck and killed in the crosswalk at the beginning of September. She was being pushed across the street in a stroller by her mother when a Chevy Tahoe rear-ended a Toyota Tundra that had stopped to let the family cross. Ruby was killed and her mother, an Australian tourist, suffered a broken back.

Local residents have had enough, and at a recent City Council meeting, they asked the city to do something to make the intersection safer. And it’s about time. Kathleen Stahl was hit in the intersection twenty-five years ago, when she was just a teenager. At the time she suffered a broken pelvis and a cracked skull. Another resident stepped forward saying she personally knew two people who had been killed in the intersection.
