    Not sure if this is true, but I heard that it was a family of 5 that passed away. :sad:

    Very sad.


    Far too many deaths on the road this year.

    I really do not understand why they make center ditches so shallow anymore. When I was a kid they were deep, when you went in at 70, you did not cross and kill a family.

    It was. I was on my way to the fair with my kids and we passed it only a minute or so after it happened. I couldn't stop as I had my two (young) kids with me and that's not something they needed to be exposed to. What I saw was bad enough. Tried 911, but couldn't get through. Apparently four in the van have passed away and the two in the car passed away.

    Absolutely horrible.
