Safety concerns arise in Sleepy Hollow after a woman is struck and killed

Sleepy Hollow residents want Webber Avenue to be made safer.

Last week a nanny walking two children on Webber Avenue was struck and killed by a 66-year-old White Plains man. Police are still investigating the accident to determine whether charges should be filed against the driver.

Meanwhile the family that employed the nanny is devastated and residents are demanding action. One resident says her son was also struck while crossing Webber Avenue, which is a two lane road with a 30 mph speed limit. Residents say the speed limit is often ignored.

Since the accident, some of the trees and bushes on Webber Avenue have been cut back to make it easier for drivers to see pedestrians.
