I have driven on that road twice.. and almost had an accident both times. That road is just too twisty and turny and when its dark...its just to dangerous. my mom had 2 friends die in a car accident on this road some years back also. I also would like to know why there was a big time lapse from the time of the accident, 9:30 and when they were pronounced dead..

It didn't take 3 hours for help to get there....
in most small towns, it takes a judge to officially pronounce someone as dead, and until he/she does, the body has to stay on scene...CPR was performed and I'm sure they placed the victims into an ambulance...an off duty firefighter arrived on scene first and started CPR...

Who said it took 3 hours for help to get there? Maybe it was like 3 hours before anyone knew they had a wreck? If someone was there for 3 hours waiting on the cell (had to be a cell and not a phone) for help, why didn't they keep bugging dispatch about senting help or try to at least give aid to the injuried?
Alot of people are asking questions, no one is giving answers, if they were there, why didn't they try to help?

The "help" was there within minutes of the accident... It takes a judge or a doctor to pronounce a death. Be thankful for the men and women who responded.

Time deviation is often misunderstood when read from a report. Emergency responders were on scene minutes after the accident.

Sam died on impact, help was there pretty fast per the troopers that came to my home, RJ was flown to S&W Temple he died around 12:20 or so,on Saturday July 26th 2008, troopers were at my house when they got the call about his passing, they were exhausted from being out at the pool all day but the driver (RJ) was passing on a no passing zone on 195 , last text I received from Sam said driving trying to get home but she wasn't driving , that was around 8:30 pm July 25th 2008.
Sorry it took so long to post anything about the accident , Just couldn't bring myself to posy anything.
Thanks to all the first responders and all that tried to save her but it was just too late.
Miss my little Samantha, always thinking f her.
Love you
Your Mama .
