PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - New details have emerged about a story regarding a dangerous intersection in Glen Hazel.
City crews were painting the word "slow" along Johnston Avenue where 6-year-old Jamel Austin was hit and killed while riding his back in July.
Austin's family and other neighbors have been demanding action at that intersection for a long time.
They said that in addition to signage they also want the speed limit reduced as well as speed humps and a traffic light, and a crossing guard during the school year.
The city is holding a public meeting next Wednesday at the Glen Hazel Recreation Center to discuss safety improvements.
Meanwhile, the suspect in Jamel's death, 63-year-old Rhonda Wood, is out on bail as of Thursday morning after being charged with vehicular homicide, involuntary manslaughter, and careless driving.
She is due in court next week.
