Cabot neighborhood wants to eliminate speeding


CABOT, Ark. (KTHV) - A Cabot neighborhood is tired of seeing drivers speed through their residential streets.

"The sounds, the kids screaming, the big bang." It all happened within a matter of seconds, but the memory may last a lifetime. "Frightening experience. It's not one I'm going to forget."

Sharron White was sitting in her home in the Shiloh subdivision when chaos happened just feet away from her front door.

She explained, "I heard yelling and screaming and I heard a screeching and a loud bang and I saw something fly pass my window."

Afraid the children next door had been hit, White ran outside, fortunately to only find her mailbox knocked down and broken into dozens of pieces. She said, "If that mailbox had not caught that car it could have come down into my front door."
