How many of you people were actually there? Probably none by the looks of your comments.
I was driving down I-71 just before this happened. I've been driving almost 30 years now all over the country as well as Europe. I have never, ever seen anything as unusual as this white out. It took only "SECONDS" for this wall of snow to completely blind you. The sun was shining, the roads were clear and within "SECONDS" in could even see the hood of my truck. I was blessed to make it out without becoming part of this catastrophe. Instead of hating, why can't you just be thankful it wasn't you or one of your loved ones in this accident. Don't forget, a 12 year old boy was killed as well. Didn't see too many prayers if any going out to him.

Internet swine jumping to conclusions like media controlled puppets. I'll pray for you all. GO BLUE!

Weather does no cause accidents.. idiot drivers do.
I'm sorry, but lets be considerate and think about the people that were killed. People are dead because of the accident, whether is was the weather or the drivers' fault. It doesn't matter so just know, that this could of easily happened to YOU and advise you nod to call victims of a deadly accident idiots.

I was minutes behind it and drivers who I am sure involved in this wreck were flying by me. It was awful I ended up sitting for three hours to finally get turned around and get a hotel for the night. I knew it was a white out and I went slow for fear of this happening.
