MILLER PLACE - Residents and business owners are calling for change along a deadly stretch of road in Miller Place.

Officials say the call comes after there were three separate crashes on Route 25A this past week. Officials say about a half dozen people were hurt in the crashes.

Residents and business owners are calling today for something to be done to slow down traffic in the area.
