LEON CO., Fla. (WCTV) -- Residents of Springhill Road say they are far too familiar with accidents in their area.

"I see one, even fatal ones, once every three or so months," said resident Delandrea Humose.

Humose lives right of of O H Hudson Lane, where in the past three months, there have been two fatal accidents.

Mona Arnold died after crashing into a tree Sunday night, three months after another tragic accident just across the street.

"They don't slow down for anything," Humose said, "You can see where both of these accidents happened and there aren't even any skid marks. That tells you that they were most likely going too fast to even react."

These accidents occurring just around a curve in the road. The curve is marked with a sign and the speed limit is 55 MPH.

"People get to going too fast or try to pass other people and that curve sneaks up on them," Humose said.

Some residents say that they think more signals could help combat the speeding and aggressive driving.

"I think that possibly more signals, or speed traps could help," said a woman who chose to remain unnamed, "Or maybe even more police patrol."

Springhill Road is operated by Leon County. The county says that the road is up-to-code with all required signage and signals.
