TUCSON, AZ (KOLD News 13) - Tucson council member Regina Romero is requesting immediate action be taken to improve safety at an intersection that has seen four deadly crashes in a little more than five years, the most recent last month.
Cholla High School senior Joana Sendino died on Feb. 28 after being struck by a car while she was crossing Silverlake Road, near Cottonwood Lane.
Previously, crashes at the intersection killed in 2014, 2015 and 2017 killed a pedestrian, a bicyclist and a motorcyclist.
Romero wrote a memo to the director to the Tucson Department of Transportation. She wants something to be done to protect everyone who uses the intersection.
