INDIANAPOLIS — Improvements are in place at an intersection on the southeast side following an RTV6 story in November.

An accused drunk driver did not stop at a stop sign at the intersection of Five Points and Shelbyville Roads and killed 18-year-old Isaac Oldham in September.

While taping the story, a woman stopped and expressed her concerns about the lack of drivers stopping at the stop sign. She recalled at least three deadly crashes there over the past three years.

RTV6 reached out to the Indianapolis Department of Public Works and they have now installed four "stop ahead" signs in an effort to warn drivers of the four-way stop.

They have also installed additional stop signs on the left side of the roadway across from the existing stop sign on the right side creating a four double-stop intersection.

DPW said there may be an intersection improvement in the future, such as a roundabout or traffic signal, but what's appropriate has not yet been determined.
