    Dam people! Second serious accident there in a few short months! Not like it is hard to see what is coming. That intersection is flat on all sides. Crossong with high snow banks might have something to do with it but when caution is applied high snow banks are no longer an issue. I sure hope I don’t know this person but I have a feeling I do. Deaths come in threes and #1s wake was yesterday. #2s is Friday and #3s………..

    My condolences to the family of the person who died in this crash. My heart goes out to the driver of the semi, too. I’ve known a few semi drivers who’ve been involved in an accident such as this, and they suffer because they were behind the wheel of a vehicle that killed someone, even though they know they did everything they could have done to avoid the collision.

    Everyone has to realize that semis can’t stop on a dime and that the few seconds they save by trying to get there sooner may, in fact, be the last few seconds of their life. Please, everyone, take precaution on our roads so you get back safely to your loved ones.
