It is always sad when someone loses a life in a terrible accident. It's easy to look at the wreckage here & see one or both of these vehicles were traveling faster than they should have been. The cars are made less safer today than they were years ago, all in the name of green. May both families find peace in this tradgety. God bless them.

That is not necessarily true. Automobile safety has come a long way. Crash test data of older cars vs newer cars have shown that crumple zones keep injuries and death of people in the newer cars safer. Being more "metal" doesn't always mean safer.

You are making assumptions, when you shouldn't. The speed limit through there is 45- a head-on collison could therefore be a 90 mph impact. The roads were very slick. Until you have all of the details, and for the sake of the family, don't make assumptions that finds fault when there may not be any.

I agree, both could have been under the posted speed limit.

Head on , it dont take much to turn and impact into a 100 MPH one.

That poor Woman didn't have much chance, looking at those pics.

Sorry, to disappoint some of you in here about the fallacy of your so called safe cars. True, they are made to crumble but it folds like an accordian & the engine & metal parts have to go somewhere. It goes right through the interior of the car.If you get your info from youtube, well, enough said. As for the speed limits, they are posted for safety in good weather. If it is 45 mph on that road, in bad weather is isn't. That's my point. Speed was a factor. The vehicles are demolished & not from the jaws of life. My good friend is a state trooper & I have been to crash sites with him & learned how they reconstruct accidents. They're a myriad of factors determining head on collisions. Bad weather & speed will come out in this one.
