Last Saturday evening my wife and I attended a cross country meet held on your beautiful Cedarcrest golf course. Unfortunately the evening ended badly. Immediately following the race at 8:05 p.m. we (my wife, my 15-year--old son and I) were traveling south on 67th Avenue. We were in a long line of cars exiting the parking lot from the golf course. At the intersection of Grove Street and 67th we were struck by another car that ran the red light going westbound on Grove Street. We were a fraction of a second from major injuries or worse. Seconds after the impact I got out of the car and asked the driver of the other car if they were okay and also pointed at the still red light in their direction. The cars immediately behind me continued through the still green light.
Those cars would have surely witnessed the accident. You can probably see where this is going. The other driver has claimed to have a green light.
Once again the accident occurred Sept. 27, at 67th and Grove at 8:04 p.m., immediately post the cross country meet at Cedarcrest golf course. If you witnessed this accident please contact me at 206-650-7777 or TamsonFischer@msn.com.
