ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A wreck at a dangerous intersection in east Albany has people asking for a traffic light. Several teens were injured in a crash Sunday morning.

Police say, the driver of an SUV pulled out from Pinson road onto Sylvester road.  That's when the driver of a Mercury Grand Marquis hit her and ended up in the grass on the west bound lane side. 

Delorias Levatt rushed to the scene as soon as she heard her grand daughter was injured in a car accident.

"It's scary because my grand daughter is hearing impaired," said Levatt.

15-year old Alexius Burse was in the back seat of the car when 27-year old Tomecia Street, Street pulled out in front of the driver, 30-year-old Frederick Harvey, who was headed east on Sylvester road from Albany.

"She has a lot of pain," Levatt noted. "She was thrown from the back seat to the front."

Relative Brittanei Levatt drives Sylvester road everyday. She says something needs to be done about this intersection at Pinson road.

"We need a light and hopefully we won't have so many accidents," said Levatt. "That could have been somebody's life."

She says a lot of people pull straight through like this car, instead of stopping in the center lane.

As tow trucks pull the mangled cars away, and crews cleanup the mess, family hopes this will be a sign for improvements to come.

We put in a request to Albany Police to see just how many accidents occurred at this intersection. We should have more by next week.

Street, the driver who pulled out in front of the car, is cited with failure to yield at a stop sign. Harvey is cited for a seatbelt violation.  Everyone sent to the hospital is expected to be okay.
