lets just wait to see whose at fault, it could have been just an accident, but tough when the other driver is 19.

It appears it was the teens fault, he pulled in front of the other car and hit them head on.

How can you say something like that from reading a very small article in the paper. I was at Paul and Sandy's that day, at the time of the accident, I didn't see it but I did see a very nice young man who never took his eyes off that car. He is going to have to live with this for the rest of his life. Oh and by the way it wasn't head on. I'm really getting sick and tired of this blog and I think they should be banned. I was a victim also and there were a lot of mean things said. So if you don't know the whole story maybe you should keep your comments to yourself. I was always told if you didn't have something nice to say to someone, you shouldn't say anything at all.

I was there also, both cars had front end damage, air bags deployed on Accura. Nissan left skid marks for about 10 feet, the Accura was either turning into Pauls and Sandys lot or passing a car, he was in the opposite lane when they hit. Fire Department cut the Nissan apart to get the driver out. I agree that this is a tragic accident, BUT the fact is that the driver of the Accura was at fault. Oh, and I do know a little bit about what happened.

Irregardless of who was at fault, the fact is that drivers in town consistantly ignore even the most basic of traffic laws. At almost any given time, on any given road in town, you can find someone passing in a no-passing zone. I'm talking serious blind curves and with traffic coming the other way. I've been passed in these situations and nearly been driven off the road by others coming the opposite direction. More tragic events like this one are certain to happen.

We need to put a stop to this "driving" thing. People are getting killed out there!!! Everyone call your local representative and tell them to ban cars before more people suffer the same fate!
