|Caitlan Barton was killed while trying to cross this intersection from right to left.|
On February 13, 25-year-old Caitlan Barton was hit by a truck and killed
while walking south across Lake Street, with the walk light on, where it intersects with Market Place near Lake Calhoun. Minneapolis police say it's likely the driver, who had a green light and was turning right from Market onto Lake Street, simply never saw her.
In the wake of that tragedy, Minneapolis and Hennepin County officials are talking about short- and long-term safety improvements to that stretch of Lake Street and adjacent roads.More »
