PORTSMOUTH, Va.— Road rage has a different meaning for Portsmouth residents living near the intersection of Airline Boulevard and Caroline Avenue.
Neighbors are angry that crashes continue at the intersection despite outcry to city leaders and even an online petition.
The area has been called dangerous, and last year proved to be deadly when a USPS letter carrier was killed after a hit-and-run.
“I’m very upset,” said Valerie Kelly. “It’s a shame that a beautiful young woman had to lose her life. She left three kids and a husband.”
Maggie White was a beloved US Postal Service worker who was killed on the job after a hit-and-run in September while crossing the intersection that’s infamous for crashes. Police are still looking for her killer; meanwhile, letter carriers still dodge cars while crossing the intersection where White was killed.
