The girlfriend of a man killed crossing Blanding Boulevard early Thursday morning is speaking out about the dangers of the intersection.
Doug Leibrock, 38, was struck by a car on Blanding at Youngerman Circle.
"I feel terrible because I did not get to say goodbye to him and now I have two children that are very devastated," said Holly Oliver.
Oliver is not only grieving, she's angry, and she wants something done to make the intersection safer for pedestrians.
Oliver said she was wary of that intersection even before Leibrock was killed there. The intersection is on a stretch of Blanding on either side of Interstate 295 that sees nearly 500 accidents each year.
Leibrock is the fourth traffic fatality there in the past 18 months.
"I'm going to contact the city councilman in that district and try to push forward with what we can do to stop these terrible fatalities and accidents out there," Oliver said.
Oliver says she's doing it both to spare other people from going though the pain of losing a loved one and to keep her boyfriend's memory alive.
Oliver is currently making arrangements to have Leibrock's funeral in his home state of New York.
"I spent 40 minutes at my daughter's school this morning," Oliver told Channel 4's Elizabeth Campbell. "My 8-year-old, she was so upset. And I'm having a hard time dealing with it myself."
