It was bound to happen sooner or later; cars going south and making a left turn onto Woodruff St., without it's signal light on, are prey to northbound traffic whose drivers are in a rush to get home and often don't come to a full stop. Some drivers don't pay attention to the four way stop intersection or perhaps they don't know what the word STOP means.
