This was my aunt! We are all in shock and saddened by what has happened...but I am also mad! Something needs to be done on this road! It is extremely dangerous to have to stop and wait to turn onto any of those county roads while you are in the left hand lane of traffic going 70 mph. Speed limit changes don't work, as we have all seen closer to Lakeport! People ignore them unless there is a police officer right there! Maybe there needs to be a turning lane put in! That would help immensely in my opinion! God Bless her husband and children and may someone finally do something about this road!

i agree!! i have lived out here my whole life and and even when the speed limit was 55 it was still bad. a turn lane is exactly what this highway needs from whiskey ben all the way through tatum. i have thought all night what that family must be going through. i drive for a living and cant imagine how devestating it would be to my son(11) if something happened to me!!

can you give me details on that wreck, name etc...? A friend just called and asked me to look up Tatum because he heard a lady was killed that may be wife of a co-worker.

thanks

I would rather not right now as there are young children involved. I want to respect that everyone who loves them may not know yet...and you never know who may read things on the web!!! Sorry!

My brother was killed on Hwy 149 years ago. His best friend was in an accident on 149 a few years ago that left him in a vegetative state. Just last week, I saw a Halliburton truck almost come within about 100 feet of hitting an oncoming car head-on.

It is just a terribly dangerous highway. Every time I pull out onto it from the road from my house, it's history always, always passes through my mind

It was just up the road from where the girls where killed. Does it really matter how many feet away it was.....It still happened. Allof the families are still suffering and a town is still learning to go without more of their friends.

This is a response to Dani2278... You have no clue what your talking about when it came to the bad wreck on 149 in Tatum,on 1/22/09, to start with No one has to make up something that horrible about someone just to make Tatum interesting, Tatum has a way of doing it them self they need no help. Not that it matter's where the wreck happend it did indead happen near the spot where the 4 girl's were killed, but that's not the point, There was a bad wreck there it involved 4 different vehicles, One woman was killed instantley and her 7 year old son was care flighted from Good Shephard to Children's hospital in Dallas.He is ok now but has a long road ahead of him as do the rest of her children, you see it wasn't just a woman killed it was someone's mother, daughter,sister,aunt,wife and friend so before you go running your mouth about what Tatum has to do to make them look interesting, That was my sister that was killed and my nephew that was hurt real bad, our family has suffered so much thru this we are still trying to deal with it, so try abd be a little more respectful when it comes to something like this not just for our family but for any family. She was Loved by many and will be missed forever. REST IN PEACE BABY SISTER WE LOVE YOU..........

I couldnt imagine what the families of the four girls went through and still dealing with their loses, and families involved with the wreck in 2009. I have never been to Tatum Texas but im sure no one has to spice the town up a bit by exploting these wrecks and any other accidents that happened on this same road. It just cruel and calculating to sugguest that is the intent. Thes families and the town have been through enough. Why do you have to run these families, town and anyone connected to any of these families through the mud. To anyone in Tatum or connected to any of these accidents my heart goes out to you, it hard to lose a loved one, no matter how it happens. Danii you should be ashamed of yourself for your comments, behavior and lack of repect for any human being alive or dead. Just be cause they are no longer with us doesnt me they werent human beings and ment something to someone, somewhere.

The lady that was killed in this accident was my biological mother... And the little boy that was also involved in the wreck was my 7 year old brother... at the time of this wreck I was still a young teenager but know I'm married to a military man with a little girl on the way as I sit here tonight reading all of the post it hurt me to know that there is still nothing done to help prevent anything like this to happen again... This January will be 5 years sense the wreck... And every time I drive on 149 my mind goes back to that day... No I never really got to know her in a personal way but I did get to meet her the November of the year before and then 2 weeks before her death and I can still remember the words she told me and my mother... they where you have become a really pretty young lady and no matter what happen when you was young I did it out of love and I have never forgot how beautiful you was them and now... She will always be loved and miss she left 4 never young kids for someone else to raise... And for any future reader I you have anything negative to say about any of this remember this could have been your mother, wife, sister, aunt, or even daughter
