People shouldn't drive in that kind of fog. When a tractor-trailer can't see another, that's gotta tell you something.

Does anybody have any pic's besides what the news had, my father was the driver in the tractor trailer that was killed? My families heart's ache also, if Fancy Gap is notorious for killing truck driver's why doesn't Penn Dot do something about it, the statistics have stated so many deathes on this stretch why, why, why, it should be shut down or something..........

So very sorry to hear about your family's loss. I lost my sister in a car wreck a couple of years ago and I know the unbearable pain you are feeling. My husband is also a truck driver and was in the North-bound direction during the accident. He called me and told me about it and we prayed for the people involved. We will continue to pray for you and your family's profound loss. My heart goes out to you.

No other choice? You could pull into an exit and wait for the fog to clear. Unless everyone was rushing to the hospital, it doesn't make sense. That's not me saying something bad, it's common sense.

Well here is some common sense for ya Trafic was backed up so bad it would have taken you forever to get to an exit ramp some people were stuck I live out there and it went from being clear to foggy when you hit fancy gap so next time why dont you use some "common sense" and think before you put your fingers to typing

Where are you sources that they were trapped in traffic?

You also can pull over to the side of the road in fog. You don't necessarily have to use an exit.

Fancy Gap has more to offer in dangerous fog than an interstate does.

Beelzebubba is a stalker and a real life troll. My opinion on the subject has nothing to do with you, or me being a "wannabe troll." I really believe it's smarter to not drive in fog.

So sorry to hear about your father. I was involved in the wreck also. I was the black mustang with the red semi on it. Mine was a few trucks behind your father. If you would like to talk more I have a few questions regarding this whole situation. I would like to try to get something done about this. It happens way to often and there is no reason why innocent people should have their lives taken from them. I want to put a stop to this so something like this never has to happen again.
