Kailey Tesdahl activates new signal light
Kailey Tesdahl activated the signal light at the intersection of S. Hurst Road and Hidden Creek Parkway, Aug. 7.
Tesdahl along with Burleson Mayor Pro Tem Dan McClendon and council members Ronnie Johnson and Katherine Reading gathered with first responders to watch as Tesdahl turned on the new signal light.
On June 5, 2017, Tesdahl along with her sister Ashley were driving to Kailey’s Centennial High School graduation when they were involved in an accident as a vehicle ran the stop sign at the intersection.
Kailey suffered a traumatic brain injury and after months of rehabilitation returned home on Dec. 18, 2017. Her sister was also injured in the accident.
Tesdahl collected her diploma during Centennial’s 2018 graduation ceremony in May at TCU’s Ed and Rae Schollmaier Arena.
With the relocation of Kerr Middle School to Hidden Creek Parkway, four new stoplights were warranted because of the increase in traffic in the area.
