Family dedicates new traffic light at Cape Coral intersection where son was killed
CAPE CORAL, Fla. - The intersection of Del Prado Boulevard and NE 3rd Terrace was the site of tragedy for a Southwest Florida family a few years ago, but now it's a site of hope.
Wearing homemade t-shirts, Kerri Santos walked with friends and family across Del Prado Boulevard Wednesday morning. It's the same intersection where her 13-year-old son Ryan was hit by a car and killed in 2010.
But now, Santos is able to cross safely thanks to a new traffic light and crosswalks.
"It's going to help other children, families to cross the road in a safe way," Santos said.
The crosswalks talk to you, telling you when it's safe to cross and how much time you have left.
But getting them put up was no easy task.
