Kudos to Orange County Fire Chief Otto Drozd and his Task Force for putting together research and best practices in his presentation to the County Commissioners yesterday.
Among the many interesting statistics: more than 70 vehicle-into-building crashes in two years in the unincorporated parts of Orange County -- with 37 people hospitalized. Also of great interest -- the number of accidents where drivers lost control of their cars and crashed: 1800 road departure crashes in 14 months!!!!!
For more complete coverage of the presentation and a view of the KinderCare site where the tragedy occurred, please see the coverage from WFTV Channel 9 HERE
We will continue to work with Chief Drozd on the ordinance to protect day cares and preschools, and we will report on progress.
