The Tribune came out and says a man and 2 kids and there is a picture of a full size dodge pickup. The son has non life threatning injuries.

Did not know about this this morning but there was almost a second tragedy also. While an emergency vehicle was coming east on Morris with sirens, horns and lights flashing, some nutjob looked at the green left-turn arrow and TURNED LEFT off South Cumberland onto Morris directly IN FRONT of the emergency vehicle. Thankfully, the emergency driver was capable enough to lock it down and avoid what could have wiped out that corner. It is so scary to watch some of these drivers. Cameras, speed bumps, red lights, police, whatever it takes, something needs to be done to make some people more aware of their surroundings. And on top of that, add road rage. I have heard it said if you could drive in Morristown, you could drive anywhere. May God have mercy on us all.

I really hate this! State Trooper that worked the wreck found 2 bottles of hydos in the truck. That is extremely sad to know.

It was not a man driving. Its a female. How do you know she passed away? They couldn't find any family members to contact so names couldn't have been released yet. Girl was 11 not 14.

Her name is Becky Long but that is her married name. CL was not her father. I haven't heard she has died. I was told (by a family member) she was in surgery for internal bleeding. They told me she was listed in stable condition for the moment. The little boy is just scratched up. The little girl died on the scene. Such a TRAGEDY!!!!!!

I hope this is true, and that Becky is still with us. I cannot imagine what the boy is going through right now. His sister was a beautiful child. Her bouncy...happy smile...will be deeply missed.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family.

Yes but I'm not going to post that right now. Some ppl still don't know yet & I don't want to upset anyone. The little girl has friends & I'm sure they don't know yet. There is also some family that don't know yet.
