Shock and grief hit community after mother struck crossing Roberts Road dies

Local News

A pregnant woman, who was earlier this month hit by a car on Roberts Road after attempting to cross with her two children, has died today.

Tiffany Bronson lost her unborn baby through emergency Cesarean section at the hospital after the baby was delivered stillborn. Her six-year-old child also died following the accident.

Shock and grief resonated through the community once again, after finding out a third life is now gone.

At the site of the accident near Hilliard Rome Road there’s a makeshift memorial.

“I’m speechless. I can’t. I don’t even know. How do you survive something like that? Life is precious,” said Dennis Wieskopff. He’s like many of the residents talking about changes that need to be made along this stretch of road.

“Probably should be a crosswalk there,” he said. “The traffic is unbearable. Anybody can get hit. Literally anyone can get hit.”

Allison Provencher says she’s actually seen folks first-hand get hit near Roberts Road and Hilliard Rome Road — and it’s scary.

“You see bicycles run off the road. I got three people I know that have been hit in hit-and-runs while they were on foot.”

She says more crosswalks need to be installed as well as lights to alert drivers to slow down. That would help at least save someone from experiencing what Tiffany Bronson and her two young daughters and unborn child had to go through, Provencher says.

And she has a message for Bronson’s family tonight.

“I will pray for her,” Provencher concluded.
