As the county seat of Flagler County, Bunnell is a small town with two major roads running through it. U.S. Highway 1, or State Street, passes through the center of Bunnell. Florida State Road 100 connects the town with Flagler Beach to the east and Palatka to the northwest. Along these two stretches of roadway, residents have experienced several serious car accidents in recent years.
This roadway is known for its speeding motorists and serious car crashes. The speed at which vehicles travel can be dangerous, particularly at certain intersections where it is difficult to merge into the fast-moving traffic. In fact, five people were killed in such an accident in February 2017. Their vehicle attempted to turn onto U.S. 1 from Old Dixie Highway at an intersection with a stop sign. Locals blame the intersection and the fact it features a stop sign, rather than a traffic light, for contributing to the high number of accidents here. Besides potential problems with traffic engineering, speeding motorists along U.S. 1 become particularly dangerous when cell phone use or alcohol is involved.
State Road 100
In February 2018, two people lost their lives in a three-car collision along State Road 100. The driver of a Chevrolet S-10 slowed down and the car behind it failed to stop, slamming into the pickup. The impact caused the truck to be pushed into the eastbound lane, where it was hit by a second car. The second impact caused the S-10 to spin, ejecting two passengers who died of their injuries. While no cause for the failure to stop was made public, collisions like these are often due to driver negligence. A moment’s inattention – whether to check a phone, change the radio, or turn to look at a passenger – is all the time needed to cause a fatal accident.
