Thousands sign petition to name road after Sgt. Morales

ST. LUCIE COUNTY, FL (WFLX) - So far, 14,000 people from around the world have signed their names on a petition asking the St. Lucie County Commission to rename Midway Road in honor of a fallen sheriff's deputy (See Facebook page).

Sgt. Gary Morales was shot and killed in February during a traffic stop just north of the busy roadway.

Commissioners now plan to contact local property owners because they would have to change their addresses if the street is renamed.
