Sanford Residents Ask FDOT to Increase Safety Around SunRail Tracks

Residents in Sanford are urging officials to quickly agree to erect a fence in order to prevent people from wandering too close to the SunRail tracks.  This latest push by Sanford residents comes after the death of the 13-year-old Marcees Kilpatrick (the accident between the SunRail and this young man was covered on our blog).  In that accident, the police were called after a SunRail driver reported colliding with a child between 12 and 13 years old.  The area around the tracks was closed for some time, and the SunRail trains themselves ceased running through the area until the authorities had investigated fully.
