ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - There were scary moments at an Albuquerque elementary school Thursday morning as a child was nearly run over.
A neighbor caught the incident on camera.
She has been warning APS about the dangerous intersection near Hodgin Elementary for months.
KRQE News 13 first reported the dangerous intersection the day after school started. But two weeks later the situation has not improved.
It nearly became deadly for a student Thursday morning.
A child was nearly mowed over by an SUV driver who rolled through a stop sign.
Neighbor Kathy Kleyboecker watched in horror as the very thing she feared almost happened.
"No little child should be hurt and I can't get anyone's attention." Kleyboecker said. "APD has been very helpful when they can but it isn't their main priority...No one will take responsibility."
Kleyboecker has been warning APS about the intersection since February but says they haven't done anything about it.
Now the district and the city are pointing fingers at each other.
APS Police Chief Steve Tellez said he doesn't have the officers to man the intersection and that crossing guards are employees of the city.
But the city says it hasn't received any requests from APS for crossing guards at that intersection, something the District confirmed.
As for a police presence, an APS spokesperson told News 13 the intersection is city property, so it's APD's responsibility.
APD sent out officers to the intersection for the first week and a half of school.
But now the officers are gone and the bad behavior isn't.
Neighbors just want someone to take the lead on the intersection before someone gets hurt.
"For the safety of the kids, that's the foremost thing," neighbor Gilbert Speakman said. "I'd hate for a fatality to happen just because nobody wants to do anything."
While there are no plans to re-do the intersection, APS says the school principal met with a city engineer and APD officer this week to come up with ideas to fix some of the traffic backup.
That could mean more signs and no parking zones.
On Thursday, city councilor Janice Arnold-Jones made a formal request to Mayor R.J. Berry to create a joint APS/City task force to come up with solutions to the traffic problems that are common at many APS schools.
