BELLPORT - Members of the Bellport community say it's only a matter of time before someone gets killed at a dangerous local intersection, and they're calling on highway officials to make changes to prevent that.

Neighbor Peter Dideo says a van with children inside flipped over in the crash.Residents say a stop sign was approved for one of the corners at the intersection, but they say they don't think it was put in at the right spot.The Town of Brookhaven says it has no record of complaints about the intersection, but says it was made aware of the recent accident and is installing another stop sign this week.
