There appears to have been a second accident closer to noon today. The intersection was closed as I was going home for lunch at 12PM. It was open when I came back before 1PM. It used to be that the light near the southbound left turn lane onto northbound would turn red and stop northbound traffic far up the road from the Hayes intersection. It appears that isn't the case any longer. It must be flashing yellow now. It has been this way since about the time the stay at home order came about in late March as far as I remember. The authorities need to reactivate this light to turning red with the Hayes intersection. Probably would have avoided both crashes there today.
