Petition for Rockport stoplight heading to INDOT - 14 News, WFIE, Evansville, Henderson, Owensboro

Petition for Rockport stoplight heading to INDOT

Posted: Updated:

Last month, a deadly accident happened at the intersection of Orchard Road and State Road 66 in Spencer County.

Police say 18-year-old Jacob Hamilton was killed when he pulled out in front a semi.

Natasha Boyer started a petition the same day, hoping for an upgrade to traffic safety in the area. She tells us on Wednesday she was able to get more than 1,800 people to sign it and has now sent it off to INDOT.

Last week, the Spencer County Commissioners told 14 News they also asked INDOT to make some changes.

INDOT says they're investigating the intersection.
