"Save a Life, Change a light!"
Please sign this petition to change a blinking red light at the intersection of Rte. 50/Eastbound End of Bypass to a regular light.
On March 15, 2014 at 5:40 pm, 44 yr. old Laura Gimbel and her 6 yr. old daughter Abbygail were injured in a serious collision as the result of someone not obeying the red blinking light and pulled out 5 ft. in front of their car. Laura was driving approximately 60 mph.
Both Laura and Abbygail lost consciousness upon impact as well as Abbygail's carseat breaking.
Abby's injuries were as follows: black eye, contusions, acute hematuria, friction burns, abrasions and nerve damage to shoulder. She was transported to Easton Memorial Hospital via ambulance and released later than night.
Laura however, was seriously injured and flown to Baltimore's Shock Trauma. Her injuries were as follows: Fractured sternum (breastbone), 3 fractured ribs (sternum and ribs are the most painful bones to break on the human body), retrosternal hematoma, bruising/cuts to right knee, chest and left arm severely bruised, cervical strain/neck pain, and nerve damage to entire chest wall and left arm . She spent 3 days in Shock Trauma only to return home and be bound to a hospital bed for the next month.
Not to mention the physical and emotional pain these two have gone through, Laura continues to struggle daily with chest pain and may require future surgery. Now 10 months post accident she still shows signs of the black eye.
Would you PLEASE HELP HER change this light by SIGNING THIS PETITION? Together we could save lives or a family from this pain!!
God Bless You ~ Safe Travels!
