    Tragic. Please think about the families. My mom personally knows the people in the ambulance and it will hit some people in Carroll pretty hard, they are well liked people.

    Hope the semi driver is mentally ok now. I know that even though he tried to pull over, it's not going to be an easy time for him to deal with it, some people might blame themselves. Thoughts go out to him too, sounds like it was just one freak thing.

    "to bad this happened"? This wasn't a tornado damaging property. How about "unbelievably horrible"

    KCCI reported that there were two lanes going in each direction at this point in Hwy 30 - the semi was going slow in the left lane, ready to make a left-hand turn, and at the last minute turned into the right lane to avoid the ambulance, just as the ambulance also took the right lane, but at a high rate of speed.

    This is incorrect! Deputy Pontius stated "at 11:26 we received a 911 call of a serious accident at B Ave and HWY 30". As I am from Jefferson, I traveled on this portion of road 100's of times. This area is NOT 4-lanes. 4-lanes start just SW of Ogden (just over 5 miles from where the accident happened).

    "A" is where the accident happened according to Deputy Pontius which would be correct as he stated "a Greene County Deputy was the first officer on scene as that deputy was near the over-pass in Grand Junction. . . We are 1 mile from the Greene/Boone County line". "B" is where 4-lane starts for eastbound traffic/ends for westbound traffic.

    looks like a 'paved shoulder' but not a paved 4 lane road.

    Unless it has changed in the last month, the shoulder (for eastbound traffic) is 9/10 gravel/dirt 1/10 paved (seriously, maybe 4 inches past the solid white line is paved).
