OSCEOLA COUNTY, Fla. – People living in Kissimmee say a portion of a road with multiple bus stops and no crosswalk is an accident waiting to happen.

There has already been one fatality in the area, and many said they fear there could be another.

There’s no question Michigan Avenue in Kissimmee has its share of traffic and can be difficult for people trying to cross the road.

We saw pedestrians cross two lanes of traffic only to get caught in the center turning lane.  

Meurline Bassette has three kids and walks to the bus stop daily. 

“They don’t want to stop for the kids,” she said.
