Drivers Talk Traffic Courtesy Following Accident

Drivers Talk Traffic Courtesy Following Accident
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It was a nice gesture that led to a deadly crash. A 75-year-old Renner man died when he was hit by an SUV earlier this week while making a left turn off of East 10th Street in Sioux Falls. Police say the accident could have been avoided if another driver wouldn't have been courteous.

“You go ahead, you take that left and I'll just wait for you. I'm pretty nice about that stuff,” Derek Bebeau from Redwood Falls, Minnesota said.

Bebeau picked up that polite roadside manner over just a year and a half driving, because everyone likes a courteous driver.

“I'll even look in the other lane and give them an okay that yeah, you can go,” Shannon Albertson of Brandon said.

Sioux Falls police say a courteous driver contributed to that accident this week on East 10th Street. Authorities say a person signaled the car that it was okay to make a left turn. But there was another lane, and a Hummer SUV didn't stop to wait. James Heezen, 75, of Renner was a passenger in the vehicle and died.

“I would probably just wait. I probably wouldn't take the wave and I'd just wait my turn,” Albertson said.

And apparently that is the right answer because let's face the facts; the signs are confusing enough out there without having to interpret sign language inside the car.

“It's like, well you can go, but everybody's like, 'oh, I don't want to go,' and sometimes you have to take the initiative and go because no one's going to go,” Bebeau said.

Police say you just need to be careful to make sure no one else is doing the same.
