The Sheridan Police Department is emphasizing safety at the Coffeen/Sugarland Drive intersection. The most common accident at this location is someone being rear-ended at the stoplight. Police Officer Dan White said he and the rest of the SPD will commit several hours of each shift to providing a police presence where it's most needed.
White said Coffeen Avenue, in general, is the busiest street in Sheridan. Accidents there produce more injuries than anywhere else within city limits. The Coffeen/Sugarland intersection ranked in the top ten most accident-prone locations in town.
