I saw the smoke from the 60. As we got close to the 15, I saw the northbound traffic stopped on the bridge and NB transition overpass. Though I couldn't see what was buring from the distance, it haunts me to think that people were actually dying in that fire. God Bless those poor people and kids that parished.

I understand how all of you feel that saw this accident and now you can't get it off your mind :( we were traveling northbound on the 15 seeing it from the opposite direction. I can't wrap my mind around the fact that as we sat helpless and watched the plumes of smoke, there was a family burning alive. Horrific! By the time we passed the scene, we couldn't even tell what kind of car it was. I kept hoping and praying no one got hurt :( My heart is broken to learn the truth. god bless this family and their loved ones. You should never have to bury your children AND grandchildren - what an unbelievable loss.

We were on our way to Vegas, saw the smoke. I got out our video camera. Thought maybe a plane went down near the airport. My husband who was driving got off the freeway and took the side street to get around what ever was happening. We ended up right next to the accident. Have it all on film. We didn't realize what exactly we were filming at first there was so much fire. My husband took the camera and filmed the fire trying to put out the fire. We didn't realize until looking at the film later just exactly what was going on inside the burned vehicle. Saddest day in our lives. We feel so bad for the family. We will do everything we can to get this to the right people. This should not have happened. Hope the Driver of the Semi gets his. That's all I'm saying.

I LOST SLEEP OVER THIS ONE, BUT ACCIDENTS HAPPEN EVERYDAY. YOU CAN BLAME THE TRUCK DRIVER THAT HIT THE SUV OR THE TRUCK DRIVER THE SUV HIT FIRST OR THE VEHICLES IN FRONT OF THAT TRUCK. BUT AT THE END OF THE DAY ACCIDENTS HAPPEN! I BET THE DRIVER OF THE TRUCK WILL THINK ABOUT THIS EVERY TIME HE STARTS HIS TRUCK FOR THE REST OF HIS LIFE, I KNOW I WOULD. BUT I DON'T THINK YOU OR ANYONE ELSE WHO'S WAITING TO BE JUDGED.......SHOULD JUDGE, THAT'S ALL I'M SAYING!

Terri: I understand how you feel that when a horrible, senseless accident like this happens, it is human nature to want to blame someone/something/anything. How is this fair? Why does this happen to innocent people and who's fault is it??? All are thoughts that I played over & over as well from the moment we passed the wreck. But I have to agree with Dave that we cannot judge. We don't know exactly what happened but at the end of the day - it was simple human error with tragic results! We are all capable of making such an error because EVERY moving vehicle (sedan or semi) is a deadly weapon. I can't imagine how it must be to be that driver right now - I'm sure he will never forget this for the rest of his life. Both families need our prayers and understanding.

For those who say accident's happen. I agree no one is perfect. But i will judge carelessness. Texting while driving for intense, is unexcusable. Driving after having a few drinks, unexcusable. Fatiqued truck drivers to make their destination on time, unexcusable.
What I filmed of the this tragic accident is beyond what i can emotionally handle. I happened to have the same kind of SUV that these people were in. The impact had to be so hard for it to cause both the Semi and the SUV to go up in flames as it did. This is going to hunt me forever.
To "DAVE" and "JNS". These people have parants that are also grand parents to those little children. There are Students and Friends whom I dare you to say as they are mourning their loss that" accidents happen" .

I DRIVE TRHU THIS PART OF THE 15 EVERY DAY, I THINK CAL TRANS AND CHP SHOULD POST LOW SPEED SIGNS, YOU HAVE IDOTS DRIVING 60 OR MORE MILES PER HR THRU CONSTRUCTION ZONE. BY THE WAY I THINK WHO EVER IS DOING CONSTRUCTION THRU THIS AREA IS DOING A NASTY JOB. SORRY BUT IS THE TRUTH

My heart goes out to those that were lost in this accident. My family and I just arrived from a trip and my parents were in one car and my brother and I in his car. We were only minutes in back of my parents. My mom saw the accident and was worried that my brother and I were in it. For some reason I told my Bro to take the 60 freeway. I have lost my husband to a tragic accident so my heart goes out to all the family and friends of those that were lost. This makes me take a step back and realize that I am still here and for what ever good deed or positive thing I can do today. That is what I'm going to do. I will try to do this everyday. I will do something good for someone today in memory of good people.
