I sure hope so!! Mr. Lentz has previous drug and theft charges on his record. I hope they do a toxicology test on him to see if he was driving under the influence. What a tragedy!! My prayers go out to everyone affected by this.

You'd think they'd charge whoever decided they could add the Route 24 bypass to the Route 1 bypass on the cheap. If you drive this highway nightly, then you know this was only a matter of time. Oncoming traffic is not separated, traffic in each direction gains and loses lanes over the space of two miles, the southbound left turn lane has signal preference over northbound thru traffic at the 24 interchange just as the northbound lanes have to merge to a single lane.

If you wanted to design a deathtrap highway, just use Route 1 from the Benson police barracks to the 924 interchange as a model.

I totally agree. I hate that road. All it takes is one hard sneeze that makes you scoot to the left and you could hit someone head on. Scary road indeed.

It is a tragedy and if under the influence he should be charged. If not, it's an accident and why would he be charged? I cannot understand why his prior record would have any bearing anyway.

I am amazed that roads like this (which I frequently travel) do not have a barrier. The same for Perring Parkway. A small grass median will not stop a head on. At least a guard rail should be addded to roads like these.

Losing control of your car because you are passing traffic on the right shoulder at a high rate of speed is not an accident...it is negligence at the least.
