alot of it has to do with these people coming out of sonic, freds parking lot with out even looking or stopping, i have been coming home from that way several times and someone just pull out infront of me but it also has to do with the speed of people coming from 77 some dont slow down till they get close to the stop sign i agree it is a very dangerous section of road

i dont know anything about the wreck your asking about..but i can say that the intersection by sonic should be a 4 way stop...it would stop the speed factor some folks have coming off 18 and or coming up 77 from the other way

I think the sonic and freds do play a role in wrecks on 77. Yet i also think it would be a great idea to put a four way stop but what needs to do be done with the two parking lots to prevent accidents. A suggestion I;ll make is to get the law to superivise that area more for safier driving.... anyone els?

i believe the 2 parking lots should connect, as so many go from one place to the other..that would help in one sense

as i posted above i agree with //my opinion// about the 4 way stop...i also agree with more law enforcement in the area.....alot of folks come off 18 to 77 way to fast and picking up even more speed before the intersection, sonic and freds

I don't think they necessarily need two parking lots. People just need to slow down and stop and be observant about what is going on around them. We already have these laws in place for speed limits and stop signs. They do need something else, such as a four-way stop, caution light, or something.

Highway 77 has a lot of history of wrecks. It is almost spooky in a way--- 7 is the number of luck and of perfection, here we have two 7s. I know of several people who have lost their lives on this highway: One man was killed back in the 70s at the floodway levee & 77; a young boy was hit by a car in the mid-60s near Tucker's; another elderly man was hit in front of Tuckers; two or three Manila teens were killed in a wreck on north 77; an elderly man was hit by an truck when he pulled out in front of it there where 77 goes up onto the 18 bypass across from the Mexican Restaurant. There are probably others I can't recall right now. It does seem to be a dangerous highway. I hope some good can come from his poor lady's tragic death last week. We must all be more diligent and not be in such a hurry all the time; pay attention and drive as if your life depended upon it. It does!

Have you also noticed that if you subtract 1 from 8 (in Hwy 18) you get 7?

Wow! That's really creepy!

The only two highways that run through town and they both involve the number 7!

777! At least it's not 666!

People tend to drive like bats out of you know where on Hwy 77.
There have been an equal number of wrecks on 18 just outside of Manila either near Big Lake or between Leachville and Manila on old Hwy 18. Too many young people to even count.

Uh yeah but if you add 1 and 8 you get 9, but if you add 7 + 7 you get 14 and if you add 1 + 4 you get 5 or if you subtract 7 - 7 you get 0 which is really creepy because then you have a circle which could also indicate infinity or worse yet a black hole that someone could fall through.....oh hell yeah that is super freaking creepy. Please give your brain a vacation or better yet apply for a new one.....

I just figured out that County Road 250 = 7
Baltimore and Big Lake each = 7 numerically
Manila, AR = 21 (3 7's)
Oooooooooooooooo!

yeah and your name plus 2 equals....OMG it equals 7
I think if I were you I'd go to that cellar now and don't come out till you hear 7 knocks on the door followed by 7 visions of chocolate chip ice cream being eating by 7 midgets wearing bikinis. You will be O K......the swelling will go down and it will all be better. Hold on I gotta get the door there are 7 turks there. Oh wait is that a bad sign? What if only 6 are wearing turbins? No thats no good 7 + 6 is 13, Oh shoot we're all damned! but then 1 + 3 equals 4 which has a square root of 2, which there was only 2 people in the Garden of Eden and we know how that went.....Oh my I could just go on and on.....but I wont cause I'm sure you will.
