Roundbunch and Bland in Bridge City is becoming a hot spot for automobile accidents. With two accidents  approximately within an hour of each other Monday in the exact same spot and another accident late last week, it may warrant taking a look to determine what the problem is.

Tanya Touchstone witnessed one of the accidents Monday and said, “the little girl in the Mustang was just going along on Roundbunch and the van tried to shoot across.”

There were some minor injuries in the accidents, but no fatalities.

It appears that the problem may be that during times of high traffic volume, people cut through the Bland extension and cut across Roundbunch to avoid the light at Roundbunch and Texas Ave. People can be observed doing just that through out the day, but it gets much heavier in the morning and evening traffic when people are driving to and from work.
