The state of oklahoma set a law that companies in oklahoma cannot employ illegal citizens.
Yet the state of oklahoma continues to employ illegal citizens.

What does this have to do with this story? Not everyone with a hispanic last name is an illegal immigrant.

If you payed any attention to the story the 2 men killed where from Kansas, instead you make an ignorant remark.

Why don't people slow down especially in work zones, If she can't drive she shouldn't be driving at all. These construction workers have the hottest and most dangerous jobs anyway, so please everyone slow down this is not right. Thanks

hi, ive thought for years every state needs to put an age limited on being allowed to drive. im sorry to say but ive saw many accidents just waiting to happen there mostly over the age of 60. so lets save a few lives and do something about this,theres an age to start what about a law to stop also?

Just wondering what would be the age limit for older drivers? In reading the stats, drivers over the age of 65 are the second most likely to die in a accident. 17-25 is the number one age group. So using your logic, lets keep drivers off the road until they are at least 26. Would that work for you?

That means the only drivers on the road would be 26 to 64. Which would mean 38 years of driving. The rest of your years, before 26 and after 65 would be walking, riding with someone of age, or mass transit. But that might be a good idea. Less fuel, fewer cars on the road. Those not of legal age would have less insurance cost, no car payments. Lets get the ball rolling and pass a law to this effect. Only people from 26 to 65 can drive.

let me just tell you guys that i knew the two men and like the other comments say that just because of their last name it doesnt mean that they were illigal immigrants i just cant believe "some" people would still say that they both had a family and children they cared for but tell me whats goin to happen to the lady that killed them why doesnt somebody answer that question for me.

not sure why the lady went off the road, probably had nothing to do with her age. if i were to guess, which seems to be the norm here, i would say it was not paying attention, maybe talking to the passenger or on the phone, etc like so many others are doing when they are driving these days. i feel sorry for all involved here since it could have happened to any of us - i'm pretty sure we have all been caught not totally paying attention to road at all times. my heart goes out to the families of the men who have been killed and our focus should be on healing everyone involved here. as the saying goes, let him who is without sin, cast the first stone...

hey you are stupid and ignorant,why don't you take this seriously,what does it have to be always a hispanic comment.think a little bit more mature, because what goes around comes around so be careful with those recist comments and have some peace. becasue if it wasn't for hispani people you would be out there sweating your ass off.
