Situation Intensifies at Church Hill Four-Way Stop as Four Drivers’ Refusal to Go First Enters Fourteenth Hour

RICHMOND, Va. — Reporters are on the scene of an incident in Church Hill as four cars remain at a complete standstill at a four-way stop. The drivers, stopped at the intersection of 27th and Leigh Streets, tell press that they can’t figure out whose turn it is to go through the intersection first.

“I managed to make it through the last six intersections, which also had four-way stops, without incident,” Anthony Burke, driver of a 1998 Nissan Altima, said. “But when I got here, everyone else pulled up at the same time. I don’t really know who gets to go first.”

Marsha Johnson, driver of a 2007 Ford Focus, told reporters that she was on her way to pick up her infant daughter from daycare when she arrived at the four-way stop.

“I don’t know whose turn it is to go, but I have to get to that daycare soon before they wonder where I am.”

The situation intensified at 6:01 p.m. when a biker was seen going through the intersection without stopping. “I don’t know who has the right of way,” Sharita Davis, driver of a 2010 Toyota Camry, explained. “But I do know that it wasn’t his turn. He didn’t even stop!”

Movement finally occurred at approximately 2:30 a.m. when all four vehicles simultaneously began to accelerate forward. However, they immediately stopped upon realizing each other’s actions, and the standstill continued.

At press time, all four cars remained at the intersection, and witnesses reported hearing the drivers agreeing that at least they weren’t at a roundabout.
