It is a scary though and yet it happens so often. I hope to god it was not drunk driving. I actually drove over to see the accident when I heard about it because I work just a few blocks away and it looked horible. My prayers are with all the families and victims of this tragic accident.

We saw the wrong way driver about 1/2 mile before the accident occurred and immediately called 911. So deeply distressing that the call did not come in time. We were devastated to get the call from the CHP tonight informing us of the accident and asking us for more details. It could have just as easily been us! When you see headlights aiming at you on the highway, it is surrealistc, so counter intuitive that you brain takes a moment to process it. Had we not been in the slow lane, it could have been so different. CHP told us that they advise drivers to drive in the slow lane at night, especially late. Best wishes to all involved, so sorry.

my mother witnessed it and was first on the scene. My prayers are w you and your family. My sister and 7 year old niece were in the car as well. If u ever want to speak w her it could b arranged. They were returning to lexington KY from ocean city. I'll check back later. We just passed it on the way home today and said a prayer for all four.

She was shook up though. I just didn't ask too much. She had about 4 more hours to drive. I could b mistaken but that's what she thought
