South Jax Memorializing Teens Killed in Accident
Two teens killed in a motorcycle crash last month could soon be memorialized on a South Jacksonville roadway.
Village president Gordon Jumper brought it up at the Jacksonville Board of Trustees meeting last week.
Our media partner WLDS radio reports letters were sent to the families of the teens, asking for both their consent and their recommendations for what's being characterized as the Leo-Morgan Memorial Way.
Before this becomes reality, the board will need IDOT approval. Discussion is expected on both the name and which street will be chosen.
Jumper said the village will most likely name an existing street near the site where Leo Alfano, 19, and Morgan McKinnon, 17, were killed.
It's unclear how long the naming process will take.
