Honestly though,when someone dies they should not be mocked. Being around manhattan and new lenox this winter the roads have been terrible. These town receive tons of money thru taxes etc.and the quality of the plowing and above all,application of salt to the roads is a total joke. The other day during rush hour cedar road was an ice rink and new lenox should have been on top of it.

Two people are dead and another injured, have some sympathy you ignorant fools. Unless you were there to witness this accident you have no business assuming anything. When the roads are icy it doesn't matter how slow you go, you can lose control of your vehicle.

Seems like this is A dangerous road, not the first fatal accident that has happened there if I remember correctly. Maybe it's Time for county/town to consider A change of some way. No need to mock anyone people lives have been lost.

They weren't speeding, they turned left off of cedar onto 52 and slid. Ended up sliding right into an oncoming truck in the other lane. Two young women lost their lives; another young man is critical. Sending Prayers to the families.

FYI Cedar rd. from Illinois Hwy. south to Manhattan is a county road, not village. That is where it was a so called ice rink. Know your facts before you bash these towns. New Lenox roads were once again clear and not slippery at all.

We need to ban automobiles. We need to ride bicycles or walk like they do in China. It will save lives, cut down on green house emissions, stop our dependency on oil, and control our global warming problem. It's a no brainer.

If it saves one life..........we have to do it.

new lenox police patrol from Illinois hwy to Laraway. These are their boundaries so the city should be dumping heavy salt on this road they also monitor the intersection at Laraway and cedar. So yes it is the responsibility. Got the facts straight nutter butter.

Cedar and 52 is miles from New Lenox. Why is NL even in this conversation? The location is a rural intersection south of Manhattan. Although speed may have not been a factor in this situation, it usually is when there is an accident here. People speed excessively on rural highways.

Do you know where 52 and Cedar intersect? New Lenox would never be involved in this. It is outside of Manhattan village limits and is a county maintained road.

People need to know their facts. It is two beautiful ladies gone and a young man fighting for his so if you don't have nothing positive to say shut up. It could of been someone you know have a freaking heart. And I know that road and it is horrible.

This conversation is about a fatal accident in our area. Manhattan is the next town over, we all know people from Manhattan. That's why New Lenox is in on this conversation.

This has always been a dangerous intersection, so much so that some locals refer to it as "Dead Man's Curve". Even with ideal road conditions, one should respect the 45 mph warning. In good and bad weather, many people have died there, including one man less than a month ago, and many more end up injured, but alive in the surrounding fields. Emergency services spend quite a bit of time pulling people out of the ditches. Most of the traffic was moving too fast for the road conditions yesterday. At that time, there had been very little plow activity, and this curve needs extra attention during any slick weather (which it has not been getting this year). No matter which direction you're headed, and even if you see the warning signs, and even if you are familiar with the intersection, it can still sneak up on you. With the volume of traffic this route has now, It's time for yellow flashers on 52, and a more visible stop from Cedar.
