Neighbors Worry About Dangerous Friendship Community Intersection

Posted:

FRIENDSHIP, Md.- An "alarming" number of car crashes in the Friendship Community has neighbors on the edge. The intersection at Friendship and Cathell Road, a few miles outside of Berlin, is what some neighbors are calling "dangerous."

 "We've had cars come across into our yards," said Randy Willison of Friendship, who has lived at the corner of the intersection for more than 20 years. He added, "cars have also flipped into my neighbor's yard."

Willison said the screeching noise of cars slamming into each other is "sadly" a familiar sound. "Once you hear that sound you know exactly what it is, no matter you are in the house, " he said.

His neighbor Grayson Wainwright also of Friendship, said that sound is heard all throughout the neighborhood.

"It's unbelievable, it's got a sound all of its own," said Wainwright. "We sit on back porch here which is only about 400 or 500 feet away from it. And when it happens, it gives you chills you just know what it is."

Neighbors worry it could soon get a lot worse.

"We've had people who were speeding on this road, coming down 65 miles per hour and broadside somebody," said Wainwright. "I mean you can imagine what kind of severity you get."

Nearly a dozen accidents have happened this last year at the intersection, and some cases involving injuries, according to the Worcester County Sheriff's Office. Deputies noticed a trend and placed up 'Look Twice' sign went up.

"Since the sign has been up there, we've noticed that people at this intersection has slowed down," said Grayson. "I've noticed people have stopped longer at the stop sign."
