Mary Murigi hugs a new traffic signal at 58th Street and Fruitridge - the intersection where her 16-year-old daughter Michelle Murigi was hit by a car in January 2012 and died. City of Sacramento and the Sacramento City Unified School District celebrated the operation of a new traffic signal at a West Campus High School press conference in Sacramento, Calif., on Tuesday, May 9, 2014. Hundreds of West Campus High School students along with local officials and friends and family walked to Fruitridge Road and witness the new traffic lights being turned on. Last fall, after student activism and a petition drive led by high school senior Siena Antolin, at far right, - a friend of Michelle - the city and school district agreed to share the $400,000 cost of installing traffic signals at the busy corner.
