In the wake of this deadly accident, Marcus Franks recalled his middle school days at a bus stop on this portion of North Market Street.
Franks said he could only watch as a young girl at a bus stop across the street jumped into the road to retrieve a ball.
"By the time I look to the left she was getting ran over. I kind of like, just, it messed up everything, man. She actually passed away at the scene."
Franks, now a local rapper and radio personality, known as Koboogie has had well over a decade to think about the deadly accident he witnessed and how to prevent future tragedies like this one.
its time for us to kind of like get a reduced speed limit sign or traffic light any one. But I would think it would take more time getting those traffic lights up, began Franks.
"But we could have that reduced speeding sign up immediately. I mean somebody could be working on that right now. The only thing it is a pole, sticking it in the ground.
