well wave your wand and fix every road fix every threat. I to was raised in calvin Ive lived in hughes county all my life. I to know these people but it was a one car crash you cant just run out there and sue someone every time an accident happen hell a deer could have ran out in front of them but im sure it wasnt a state employee over hughes county I mean he has alot of bosses over him to., if any one man is to blame its not him.
Who is responsible for fixing the 12 to 14 inch hole? Who gets paid for fixing defects in the hiway? You say the Hughs Co. Superviser has alot of bosses maybe they are named in a wrongful death suit.

how many times did the vehicle roll,so what did the report say about the excessive speed the vehicle was traveling?the driver lost control the instant he went off the paved road..slow your roll

you really are dense arent you? Yes,stupid,when you run off in a deep hole,the result is usually loss of control..

It is the responsibility of the Hughes county supervisor to fix the holes or dangerous spots after they are reported. It is Ada's job to provide funding and extra manpower ,and to schedule large jobs..Ada said there wasnt funding allocated to fix the hole,and Hughes county said it was Ada. How much could a couple of sacks of cement cost? Or two sacks of cold mix asphalt? This lack of caring from the state indirectly or directly took two lives..The driver might have been speeding, inattentive,or not at fault..He was not at fault for lack of road maintenance though..Mr. caution,one of these days it might be you family member being zipped up in a body bag..Maybe you wont have such a smart mouth then

Calling me names will not bring back these people back,nor will it solve a thing..taking my advice by slowing down on these well known dangerous curves could prevent an accident from happening again..this man drove that stretch of road many many times just like most of us from this area have

OK, so now you know he was speeding,and you know he was the cause of the wreck,and that it was avoidable..Slowing down is good advice. How do you know how fast he was going? Were you riding with him?

Just south of Calvin on 75..Holes are just beyond the white lines.If you get a tire outside the white line,you are a goner..The state had dumped some more gravel in them after the fatality..The newspaper even had a write up about them

Seems to me slow speed through that stretch is certainly a plus,and fixing the road is another plus.

do you continue to drive posted speed limit when roads are icy or rainy?so why not slow down for curvy.its not like road narrows or moves..same width if you measure..state regulation,ever wonder why you see detours in construction zones for oversized loads(over10ft wide)now you know

Ding Dong..listen up..There is a speed limit sign on that road..There is one before the curves..If that is posted,it is supposed to be safe to drive under normal weather conditions etc..Why do you keep telling people to slow down when you dont know shit about how fast he was driving? Do you feel the need to argue constantly? What is your definition of safe speed on that road? 35? Now you are impeding the flow of traffic. I got news for you einstein..A vehicle can roll at 35 mph as well as at 75 mph. It depends on vehicle height,weather,road conditions,vehicle weight etc..We understand for the 74th time that you think people should slow down..We get it ..We get it..The road is narrow and dangerous..End of story

that hiway,or any state hiway for that matter..the width is not any narrower on a curve than a straight stretch of hiway,plus a white posted speed limit is maximum allowed by law,yellow is suggested..I am not suggesting that you drive that fast when road conditions worsen or are curvy,that is all up to the DRIVER who is responsible

Guys, the posted speed on that stretch is only 40 mph. I don't think anyone is going to be impeding traffic driving 35 mph either. I like the advice of slowing down and buckling up, as we should all be doing that anyway.
Prayers to the family for their loss.
