Dont know if anyone couldve survived that accident... The vehicle was mangled beyond recognicion...seemed like a red minivan or similar to it...debris scattered everywhere.... We were all backed up on the side of the road but there was complete silence as the EMS Helicopter came and left.... God Bless those people... Life is short...and could be gone in a split second.. So please...we need to take time and let our loved ones know how much they mean to us... Forgive and forget..discussions now may not have time for reconciliation tomorrow....Merry Xmas to all.

He is in ICU and slowly getting better. please pray for him. Please let this be a lesson that you shouldn't pass cars when you do not have a clear view. a truck was passing someone when he had to dodge it.
Prayers ur way

May The Lord be with your friend and his family. I pray for a speedy recovery and that our dear lord guide the physicians to have the knowledge to know exactly what to do while caring for this child of God

I saw a tan colored Dullie truck that was off to the ditch... It left a long streak of something (oil/water) that started from east bound lane on to west bound and ended up on the eastbound side ditch.. Couldnt see if it had hit something or how bad... Was the person in ICU heading east or west? We will pray for his recovery...

Deer and poorly planned passing isn't good.

People if someone wants to pass pull over on to the big shoulder and let them. If they are too slow in passing I even kick off cruise control to get it over with.

Passers, get a good look at what's in front of you and when you pass give it the gas and get it over with fast as possible. Don't just do the speed limit, get it over with.

Too many people don't let people pass and this is what happens.

Nope just doing the speed limit and too many wont let people pass, that's the big issue. Anybody dumb enough to speed in Kinney County gets a ticket. I do the speed limit and if someone wants to pass I always pullover and let them pass when its safe. Please let people pass. Save a life.

why should we pull aside to let someone pass and risk our lives of something being on the side of the road and letting us loose control!?!? I think not. I dont' let no one pass me because I have kids and am going speed limit. I am not going to worry bout others who are being stupid and wanting to speed. My kids are way more important!

I agree with beg to differ. People are under no obligation to move to the shoulder to let some idiot pass. It's too dangerous to drive on the shoulder. The bigger idiot is the person who lets someone pass and moves to the shoulder. Drivers who move to the shoulder are just as guilty when an accident occurs.

I agree with "beg to differ" & "yup"

Not moving into shoulder, period. And my windshield would have fewer chips if you wouldn't do it in front of me. I prefer to pass when it's safe, not be forced into it by debris being thrown at me.
