Folsom residents rally to make a deadly intersection safer after middle school student dies in bike vs car accident

An 11-year-old Folsom boy, Calvin Suh, was hit and killed by a car while riding his bike on Monday. His death has sparked a neighborhood rally requesting the city of Folsom to investigate how they can make the dangerous intersection safer for pedestrians and bicycle riders.

The intersection currently has not stop signs, traffic lights or crosswalk in an area where many residents say drivers regularly drive much faster then the posted 45mph speed limit. Neighborhood residents reported that the design of the intersection is most likely a major factor in the tragic lose of the young boy. One resident said that the intersection is so dangerous that she often drives her daughter just to cross the street where the car accident occurred.

The Folsom police department is currently investigating the auto/bike accident and have ruled out DUI as a contributing factor. The driver of the car, which has not been cited, has been cooperating fully with the accident investigation.

Immediately following the accident neighbors took action by collecting signatures requesting a traffic safety improvement and submitting the proposal to Folsom city officials. Folsom city officials have ordered a landscaping survey to see how the median landscaping can be changed to improve visibility at the deadly intersection. They have also requested a comprehensive traffic survey to investigate the current traffic patterns. City officials will review these reports and request any recommended intersection improvements to be approved by the Folsom city council and the Traffic Safety Council.

No one wants to have to hire a lawyer, but if you do. I prefer Tiemann Law. They helped a family member who was injured on the job, and the company did not want to compensate him even though, the injury occurred on the job on company time. Jelena was always professional in explaining the lengthy process of fighting a large corporation. 2 years later he finally is receiving the deserved compensation.

From the very start of my case the Tiemann Law Firm was wonderful. Perter came all the way to my home to sit down and talk to me about my options. He made me and my partner feel very comfortable and promised us he would take the very best care of my case. Peter kept me informed every step of the way and was always on top of things. everything was done in a timely manor and I always felt like I was the only case he was working on because he was so fast. In the end Peter got me back way more money than I ever expected. I would recommend this law firm to everyone. I am very happy with the outcome of my case thanks to the Tiemann Law Firm! Thank you!

I was in a car accident a while back where I was injured and had to miss work for an extended period of time.  After nearly a year of fighting with the insurance company with no results and no progress, I met with Jelena Tiemann.  I couldn't have asked for a more responsive and supportive advocate.  We quickly reached a settlement and I finally was able to move from the stress and burden of feuding with my insurance.  I highly recommending meeting with Jelena if you're in need of a lawyer.

To add on to this a little On how much they will work with you, I moved to Montana in the middle of all Of this and it was not an issue!
