Yesterday, something terrible happened on Little Falls Road in Arlington. Jennifer Lawson, a 39-year-old mother of three, was struck and killed by a dump truck outside Nottingham Elementary School. She was helping one of her kids in or out of her minivan.
According to local residents interviewed by NBC 4, cars speed through the area all the time. One of those locals was Washington Capitals defenseman Karl Alzner, who wants speed bumps added to slow traffic down. The TV crew didn’t seem to know who he was.
Perhaps Arlington can heed Karl’s advice and prevent another unnecessary death.
