I saw the wreck on Campbell Lane just after it happened. One car was upside down in the middle of the road. There were only minor injuries? That's a miracle.

Does anyone know, was an older lady involved in the accident? I can't find any info on the accident on-line at all.

If everyone would get off their friggin cell phones a lot fewer accidents would happen. I see where an investigation showed that the truck driver involved in the accident on I65 that killed all of those mormon family members was on his cell phone at the time. I bet more accidents are caused by cell phone usage than drunk drivers. Where are those bitches from MADD now? Probably driving while talking on their cell phones.

wonder if the trooper involved in the fatal collision was using a cell phone. the paper said he crossed the center line and hit the other car head on.

It isn't just cell phone use. Some people can't drive even when all of their focus is on the road. There are people who should simply not be allowed to drive.

I drive and talk on the phone all of the time. Last accident I had was 8 years ago, and I wasn't on the phone when that happened. The woman who ran the red light was putting make up on.

People in Bowling Green seem to forget that driving is like surgery. If you are practiced, patient and aware, things will go well. If you allow any of these factors to fall to the back burner, the consequences can be grave.

I saw that wreck and helped get the people out of the cars and to the side of the intersection!People was still trying to come through the intersection and around the wrecked cars in the middle of the road, People has no respect whatsoever! They was very lucky that there was only minor injuries in this accident because both vehicles took a very hard lick! Thank GOD everyone was ok and the 18 month old in the car was buckled!! If anyone knows these people, I would like to find out how they are doing!

Let's not forget that more accidents are caused by sober drivers than drunk drivers. It's true, numbers don't lie. Same with phones, more wrecks are caused by people who aren't on the phone than people who are.

Well heres my record and what i think, i am a semi truck driver with over 2 million accident free miles, i talk on the phone while driving with a headset, book freight, eat, read maps, put info in my GPS and sometimes pee in a jug while driving. Driving is like surgical and a lot of people can't walk and chew gum at the same time. Oh yea been driving semis 20 yrs and had my drivers license since i was 16 i am now 48. Never had a ticket, EVER or in any accident. I have been fortunate and always watch whats going on around me no matter what other multitasking i am doing driving down the road. Most people just cannot drive anyways. I myself would like to see everyone with a license or a CDL license have to be retested every 4 yrs before they can renew their driving privilege. Driving is a privilege NOT A RIGHT!!
yea

i totally agree with the truck driver. if you are broken down on an interstate, a truck driver will be the first if not the only one to stop and offer help. they sacrifice home life so people can enjoy driving their cars, talking on cells phones, eating and well, everything.

the cell phone accident is like the cell phone that starts a fire at a gas station. Someone hear something about a cell phone and that caused the accident. By the way a cell can't start a fire at a gas pump. not enought energy but static electricity can.

I've lived down the road in Owensboro, spent A LOT of time in Louisville, spent a summer in Chicago and have spent some time out West. I have now been in Bowling Green going on 3 years. I can, from my experience, say that Bowling Green is second to none when it comes to crappy drivers. I can't think of the last time I've left the house and haven't had to go from 55 to about 15 in about 150 feet cause some chump wanted to pull out in front me, rather than wait for the half mile gap behind me, and also they feel the need to go no more than 10 mph less than the speed limit AFTER scooting to get infront of you. It's abysmal; not to mention the quality of people in Bowling Green. ( and by this I mean are they genuinely friendly or at least courteous or are they an a$$hole who is concerned with only themselves.) I know these nice and asshole people are waht make up the population but God I can't walk out of the door or go out to eat without getting a hairy eyeball from someone and their momma in BG

I have been to 15 states and numberous towns, nowhere do you hear as many horns blaring at stop lights or see as many ''friendly gestures'' being offered. What has happened to our friendly little town?
Well

The horn honking and 'friendly gestures' are directly proportional to the stupid people not paying attention behind the wheel. If I'm behind you and the light turns green and you are still sitting there 15 seconds later I'm going to honk. When I'm driving down Campbell lane going the speed limit of 45 mph and you pull out in fro of me and accelerate to 25 mph and stay there, there might be a friendly gesture thrown your way once i manage to get around you.

Sometimes when a light turns green, I don't immediately start going thru the intersection, I look twice before taking off. The way people drive lately, I MAKE SURE everyone with the red light is stopped or definitely stopping. I don't want to get broadsided by someone going thru the red light. Please don't get annoyed with me. I'm just trying to drive safely!
