Crossing Protest After Schoolboy Dies
7:01am 4th February 2013
A hundred people have marched through Hayle warning it is only a matter of time before another child dies at an accident blackspot.
It is after eleven year old Caleb Hollow lost his life on Loggans Road just days before Christmas.
Caleb was seriously injured at around 8.40am on 7th December and was taken to Treliske before being transferred to Frenchay hospital in Bristol.
He lost his fight a few days later.
He is the second child to have lost their lives on the stretch of road and now his family is launching a campaign to have a new crossing put in.
Family friend Maria Ellis said: "There is a national speed limit just up the road. There is no traffic calming, there is no nothing. We've got lorries, we've got vans - it's another accident waiting to happen.
"We need a safe crossing for our children. We've got elderly residents here who take their life in their own hands when they cross to get the bus. This is the second tragedy now. We need railings and we need a crossing so it doesn't happen again."7:01am 4th February 2013
