It's terrible to say, but it's almost a blessing all were taken. Can you imagine what the baby would have faced should it have survived?

This is such a sad sad story.

My thoughts and prayers are with the rest of their families and friends.

May they rest in peace!

Judy, I assume the baby would have been adopted by a deserving family and raised as their child if there was no other family members to do it. I certainly can't see where it's a blessing the baby didn't survive.

When I'm driving on a 2 lane highway and I see a truck coming from the opposite direction, my senses are heightened, I steer closer to the outside of my lane, I slow down a bit, and I watch the road ahead of me, and the truck peripherally.

Are there no defensive drivers out there any more?

Pray foe the lost souls and for family that must bury loved ones but do not forget also those that responded and saw the carnage that will forever be in their minds. You never forget a scene like that and it touches all that you are the rest of your life.

I think the people who choose the profession of EMT, Doctor, nurse, etc....eventually get use to it. I feel for the families that now have to bury their loved ones....but keep the medical profession out of this, they do this for a living and see death daily. Whatever!!!!!!!!!!

I really don't see how anyone could get used to seeing a dead or severely injured child. Also would you say the same about our soldiers that see death daily that they are used to it? Have you ever heard of Post Traumatic Syndrome? Most people have a heart and feelings and this type of thing affects deeply no matter who you are or what your profession may be.

To Whatever, Your name says it all about you. You are so wrong! Emergency and Medical people DO NOT get used to it.

May this young family rest in peace.

Thank you to all who tried to help.

BIG DIFFERENCE IN BEING A SOLDIER AND HAVING TO KILL PEOPLE FOR THE UNGREATFUL PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES!!!!! I HAD A CHILD WHO SERVED THIS UNGREATFUL COUNTRY, BIG DIFFERENCE IN CHOSING TO PLAY GOD AND SEEING DEATH AND TRYING TO DEFEND A COUNTRY THAT COULD CARE LESS!

I hope that spouting the abusive swill you've contributed to this thread provides yoiu some satisfaction but you clearly are in need of more help, from some of the very professionals you would demean.

This is about a terrible tragedy. I don't understand why you have so much hate. I won't argue with you because most people that show this much hate for no apparent reason have had a tragic event in their life and do not know how to deal with it other than anger. All the retired deputy was trying to say is we all feel for this family and it's difficult to be on site in one of these situation instead of reading about it. Please try to understand people are affected and do care..

So - you get a little gold star. Way to use the deaths of 4 people to make you a superior driver, a legend in your own mind.

No, I just don't get how you don't SEE or REACT to a truck coming at you. Especially when you have precious cargo in your control.

How does one drift into the other lane - when one is not paying attention. And there were 2 adults in the car, obviously they were BOTH distracted.

Get over your own mental self-legend. I drive smart, if that means "superior" then so be it.
