I want to know how they can say the driver of the truck was not at fault!!!....Under the influence and having drugs in the car in my opinion puts them at fault! The big question to me is...if he wasn't under the influence could this have been avoided? I would have to take serious thought into that instead of saying he wasn't at fault. He had no business being behind the wheel in my opinion.

Hi Larry, You're right. I feel the same way. But I wrote to a reporter who covered the story and he told me that the truck driver will be automatically charged as partially at fault. I'm not sure what that means as of yet. I suppose we'll have to continue to follow this story. Provided it doesn't just get passed over for "more interesting" news. I thought if you are driving impaired by alcohol and the accident involves a death, that is vehicular Homicide. What did I miss??

My aunt and cousin were killed in this accident, and of all the information we've gotten about it, it doesn't make any sense of how he was not at fault. I say that not just because my family members were killed, so I totally agree when you say that he had no business behind the wheel of a car. I was absolutely disgusted to read that he was under the influence but was not the at fault driver, those are two statements that should never even be in the same sentence. If anyone could give any information about the other girl in the car, we would really appreciate it. We do not know any information as of right now.

First my family & I would like to thank everyone for their love and support throughout this very difficult time. And to comment towards the article printed about this accident. It is frightening to me that someone out there really beleives that even though the driver who killed my sister and neice was under the influence and arrested for it is not at fault.I question if the writer of that artical was of right mind.

The truck driver was partially at fault because he was under the influence.
But,the driver of the car did not yeild the right away and,from what I hear,did not have her lights on.This means the next poor bastard would have hit her if they were drunk or not.
Sorry ,it was her fault.

To begin with, if anyone comments here they should realize that the family of the victims come here to read, share and maybe get some solace from the kind words of strangers. To a large degree, this is all they have. Let's be more considerate of all parties involved. Next, there is no reason to believe "the next poor bastard would have hit her" In every account documented, the truck was speeding. Evidently the spot where the accident took place has always been a safety concern. The truck was traveling at a high rate of speed by a drug and alchohol impaired driver. That is the only fact thus far. Let's be mindful that often these stories get stretched beyond reality, so be careful not to hurt people with misguided information.

First I would like to convey my sympathies to all involved in this tragic event. I can't imagine my family having to go through a similar event.

Just speaking from a legal point and not taking sides. In most states a driver making a turn has 100% percent of the responsibility to yield to oncoming traffic. The only exception would be if evidence showed the oncoming vehicle was travelling at an unsafe speed. The speed, in a sense, would take away the oncoming driver's right-of-way.

The oncoming driver being intoxicated, by itself, does not mean he/she would be at fault for the accident, but should be prosecuted for the driving under the influence.

Hope this information is helpful, and again my sympathies to all involved.

answer to the idiot who wrote about the woman not yeilding to traficc are you crazy. My sister rode that road everyday I highly doubt she did not yield to traffic with her daughter and my nieces friend.That is the news we are hearing I guess this person who killed my sister and niece must be a somebody there,but so was my sister and niece,so is my family this ain't over yet.this person was no teenager,he was a grow man, who needs to be punished,for what he has done.
