New Ulm Police stress the importance of pedestrian safety

MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - New Ulm Police Chief Dave Borchert joined KEYC News 12 This Morning to stress the importance of pedestrian safety after a series of accidents.

In 2018, there were two fatalities with pedestrians being struck by vehicles, and another very serious crash with a pedestrian a month afterwards.

The intersection of Broadway and Center St., and the highways that run through town pose a major challenge to pedestrian safety.

New Ulm Police has made four campaigns to help keep pedestrians safety, and continue to warn people about pedestrian safety.
