Girl Scout warned about danger before CA fatal crash
Girl Scout Malia Mailes is being hailed in her hometown of La Caņada Flintridge for her crusade -- and her prescience.
Mailes, a 16-year-old La Caņada High School sophomore, had been warning for months about the safety problems posed by trucks driving downhill on Angeles Crest Highway.
Then on Wednesday, a big rig lost control on the road, barreled through an intersection and smashed into a bookstore, killing two people and injuring 12 others. Now some residents are wondering why more people didn't heed Malia's warnings.
This is a big local story here. I just listened to an interview with this sharp gal. She made an entire power point presentation to the City Council to try and get something done about this intersection.

As most of the times with the safety of the public, it take a horrible event like this one for someone to notice and do something about it.
I am sure this girl "knows" she did everything she could, but the "powers" that be, did nothing. I hope she goes onto bigger and better things.
Who listens to a kid anyways, not the "power" that be of course, the people who could have "done something" to prevent this.
Proactive "politics" is just not based in reality. As so it seems.
