This is the kind of story you hear about but never really think actually happens. The odds are amazing. Poor family, hope the survivors recover.

Please, people, if you're too tired to drive, pull over, stand up and stretch. Better to lose 60 seconds to a pit stop than to lose a human life.

Hey Fire Marshall Bill, spare us the "what if's." Accidents happen and this is a tragic one.

What's the problem with some safety?

I have a friend who works that same kind of shift and travels the interstates.They have to pull over and sleep anywhere from 30-60 min and sometines twice in order to make it home! How many more deaths does there have to be before companies do away with these slide shifts?

I hope the driver receives counseling. Even if she thinks she does not need it, it's a good idea. I said a prayer for the entire family to have comfort and understanding. (Also one of thankfulness for the protection and safety of my own family for today.)

Pulling over to stretch is not going to help. If you are too tired to drive, you shouldn't drive. Period.

How sad for all. Burning the candle at both ends is never good. When our body needs rest we must listen, However none of us can judge these circumstances, so let's just pray and learn a sad lesson.

You are a moron! It could have just as easily been a man that had that unfortunate accident!

To all who have responded negatively insulting any part of this article, do you not think that the families on both sides dont read the talk back forum posts? You might strong opinion about an article and that is fine, but have some common respect for those who are impacted by this tragedy!!!

I sure don't care for the way inlaws act at times, but would never wish death on them....I just don't get people like you.

I don't think there was or would be anything easy about having a wreck and killing someone. I don't think grief could be avoided if you have any kind of heart or compassion.
