Three street lamps at the intersection have been out for over a year and some believe the poorly-lit street is dangerous for drivers and pedestrians.

Resident Ann Chapman says she almost struck a pedestrian at the intersection.

“I barely got  stopped before I nailed her,” Chapman said. “It’s just really, really bad. And the city has been told two or three times by different people that these lights are out and nobody has been out to fix them.”

It’s unclear whether the driver of the SUV was injured. Police continue to investigate the accident.
