JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- About seven months ago, a vehicle came barreling through the intersection of Kennerly and Barns Roads and crashed Into the Jackson's home, killing JaNay Jackson, 17, as she slept. Saturday it almost happened again.
"I thought oh no not again," neighbor John Gower said.
It's a pain not just felt by one family but an entire community. August 28th, police say a driver under the influence of drugs ran the stop sign at Kennerly Road and smashed into Jackson's bedroom.
Saturday, yet another driver's car went off the road landing in the Jackson's yard. Police say Jacorie Pollock was arrested for DUI. For Jackson's dad, this crash brings back painful memories of the past.
"Physically we are ok. Physically we are ok. This is definitely an emotional setback," Gerald Jackson said.
Neighbors say while they're shocked it happened again so soon, they aren't surprised. They tell Action News drivers think this road is a raceway and many go way too fast.
"They're constantly coming down there back roads to miss the lights out there," Gower said.
These homeowners are pleading for speed bumps, reflective signs, or a traffic light. We reached out to the city to find out what can be done. They tell Action News in light of these crashes they are now going to install rumble strips and a "stop ahead" sign on Barnes Road. Gower says its about time.
"I wouldn't reconsider I'd just go ahead and put a light up I mean for safety sake alone," he said.
The city says those improvements are on the list and will be taken care of as soon as possible.
