Speed bumps to be installed in South BR neighborhood
EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH - Residents in a South Baton Rouge neighborhood are sick and tired of speeders tearing through their streets.
A main road that runs through Oak Hills Place will be getting speed bumps installed, the city-parish announced Tuesday.
One man tells WBRZ a speeding driver crashed through his house recently.
"There was a hole in the house," Scott Courtright said.
He says the speeding car lost control and careened into his son's bedroom. Luckily, no one was home.
"The front end of his truck went into the house. It pushed his bed across the room."
North Oak Hills Parkway is set to close Friday at 7 a.m. and will reopen Sunday at 7 p.m. Drivers in the area should use Twisted Oak Drive as a detour.
