DECATUR -- Neighbors in a Decatur community are fighting for pedestrian safety improvements after 59 year-old Jianchang Wu was killed while crossing busy North Decatur Road in June.

Mr. Wu and his wife were in the United States visiting their son who is a grad student at Emory University.

Mr. and Mrs. Wu were crossing mid-block near Landover Drive when a pickup truck driven by a Loganville man struck Mr. Wu.

The area experienced another traffic fatality last April, when cyclist Paul Taylor was killed in traffic.

Now, neighbors are pleading with DeKalb County for pedestrian safety improvements, so no other families will have to endure this kind of pain.
