WILLOWS, Calif. - A Willows man is speaking out for more safety improvements at the intersection of North Murdock Avenue and Wood Street, he says that area is dangerous for children walking to school.

Kyle Hogue has lived in Willows for nearly two years, he originally comes from Nevada, he says ever since he brought his daughter to Murdock Elementary School he has seen drivers constantly ignoring the rules of the road.

Hogue says a lot of people in the community have been complaining online about the Wood Street crosswalk, even pointing out that a motorcyclist was slammed by a car Thursday. 

Hogue says the motorcyclist was stopping for a girl, who was trying to cross the street.

The motorcyclist was then hurt and taken a hospital, according to Hogue. 

Now Hogue is speaking out to Cal Trans District 3, in hopes that they put more safety devices at the crosswalk. 

Cal Trans District 3 says from January 2014 to December of 2018, there have been no crashes in that area.

They also say that there are not enough crashes to warrant the installation of flashing beacons at North Murdock Avenue and Wood Street.

Cal Trans adds that they will send their team to look at the area to see if traffic conditions have recently changed.
