  1. “Police responded to Templeton Gap Road near Corinth Drive (MAP)…”
    .
    While the map did include the mentioned intersection, it did not identify Corinth Drive, which didn’t help locate it. Yes, it’s a Google Map issue, but if you’re going to link to outside tools, please check they work as one might expect them to work.

  2. People drive this road very very fast. I don’t know if speed was the cause in this situation, but I wouldn’t rule it out. I’ve almost been hit pulling out of Corinth Drive a few times by people driving at what I would consider highway speeds. A little speed enforcement might help here.
