Yesterday the Los Angeles City Council was presented with a motion by Councilmember Paul Krekorian to expedite the installation of a traffic light at a North Hollywood intersection that has been the site of multiple fatal accidents in recent years.The crosswalk at Laurel Canyon Boulevard and Archwood Street was the scene of an accident last week that took the life of 12-year-old Emely Aleman, and injured her 10-yaer-old sister, Angela Rodriguez. Krekorian was joined by Los Angeles Unified School District Board Member Tamar Galatzan in demanding that the city install a light right away--a demand echoed by area residents who circulated a petition.
