Two Boston high school students were hit by a car as they crossed the street at the intersection of Tremont Street and Malcolm X Boulevard in Roxbury on Tuesday. Safety advocates say the intersection is a hazard and that changes need to be made to make sure tragedy doesn't happen again. NBC10 Boston Investigator Ally Donnelly has been tracking dangerous intersections across the city for months. She discovered there were at least 772 pedestrian crashes throughout the city last year, 12 of which were fatal. That number was down from the year before after the city lowered the speed limit, and installed bike lanes, speed bumps and lights in some neighborhoods, but even the mayor has admitted more needs to be done. Ally Donnelly has more.
