BX residents fight for safer intersection

Bronx residents are fighting for safety measures on Broadway near West 251st Street.

The push comes after accidents that have claimed the lives of two commuters, while a third narrowly escaped after being hit.

The most recent death was in February, when Ana Estevez was killed while crossing the street at the intersection.

Many refer to the stretch from 242nd to 251st streets as the "Dead Man's Curve," because it doesn't have a light or signal in place.
