I knew all four people involved. They were all good people. God had to have a reason to do this. Please pray for the families. Please say an extra prayer for Deborah, the one in the hospital.

"The women were traveling north on interstate 57, just north of Matoon, Illinois, when they came upon a construction site which narrowed the highway to just one lane.

That's when police say an inattentive big rig driver looked up and plowed into the line of cars in a chain reaction wreck."

Where was he looking before, if he just looked up?

The police should have put a bullet in his head right there in front of everyone on the scene.

The driver was looking for a map.
