Don't know who it is. But, he hit my aunt and uncle in the rear end and totalled their car. He left the scene and went down the road a short ways and hit someone head on. He was killed instantly. The state polica called my Mom over. Thankfully my aunt and uncle are ok.

WOW! Your very comforting! How long do you think it takes someone to investigate the scene, and clean up? Come on... your are probably the same individual that thinks walmart should open a lane just for you when you are ready to check out!

I agree with you ohwell, that is so awful for someone to say. The law has a job to do correctly and i am glad to see they are not making a rush clean up so they dont make a mistake..prayers to all involved..

I was on the scene shortly after it happened. There was one fatality. I was told by the other victims that the drunk driver left that scene as well, there was a BOLO out for that car on the scanner a little while after. I hope they find him!!
And to Maniac, How long do you think it takes to clean up a scene like that, get all the documentation, and Hazmat to clean up, plus transport all the people involved!!!

My prayers go out to Matt's family and close friends, which I here were many. I heard he was a really great guy. Only the good die young, they say

Matt, I didn't know you but you touched my life and I will always remember you, and our chance encounter on that fateful morning...

Matt was an absolutely amazing guy. Always smiling and his positive attitude was contagious. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A life lost way too soon.

So sorry to hear this, I think of him every time I drive by the site of the accident.

It must have been terrible. Any accident on 55 tends to be tragic, we all need to slow down and pay attention.. It is a sad time for all involved and for anyone who has to ride by memorial sites on any road that has had fatalities. Even if you didn't know them. Please be careful.
