Falls Twp Launches Memorial Marker Program to Honor Victims of Fatal Crashes
Falls Township Police have launched a new program to honor loved ones killed in motor vehicle accidents within the boundaries of the municipality last month.
Members of the police department recently joined the family of Blake Sims, who died May 17 in a single-vehicle crash in Falls, with installing a memorial marker at the site of the crash. Blake, 25, of Florida, was an active-duty U.S. Navy sailor who was driving through Falls when he lost control of his motorcycle and died at the scene.
The memorial marker program began to honor Blake but will be expanded for families of anyone who has lost a loved one to a fatal motor vehicle crash in Falls Township.
Following an application process, markers can be installed on roadways where no right of way issue exists. Markers can not be placed on limited access highways such as Route 1 or Route 13.
The marker will remain at its location for a minimum of one year from the installation date. Additional ornaments or decorations are not permitted. All applications should be submitted to Sgt. Christopher Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org, or in-person to the records department.
