UPDATE 10/24/13

In the last year, there have been dozens of accidents and six deaths on Interstate 20 at Ranger Hill.
The most recent accident was last Monday. 23-year-old Virginia Hutto died in the nine-vehicle pile-up.
Her death and concern about future accidents have led loved ones of Hutto to start an online petition.


It calls for the speed limit on Ranger Hill to be lowered to 55 miles per hour, instead of the current 75 miles per hour.
In its first two hours--- the petition generated hundreds of signatures. Now, it has more than 1400 signatures.
In a statement to KTAB news, TxDOT explained its plans for Ranger Hill. Creators of the petition hope those changes come sooner than later.
