    Default OT:Bad Accident!

    This happened out in front of the house this afternoon. 4 lanes of 55mph traffic. Hard to tell what exactly happened, but looked like a head on. Four people where involved, one was life flighted and the only ambulance that I saw leaving the scene did not have its lights and siren on (not a good sign). Traffic was re-routed for about 2hrs. I'll have to find out more about what happened in the paper tomorrow.

    Don't worry, there are no "gory details" in the pics.

    Nice BK117 Eurocopter! FYI most of those helicopter places offer a kind of insurance for cheap (60$ a year) which is much better than 9000. If you live in the boondocks like me its good to know your coordinates as well. Borrow someone's GPS.
    Hope those folks do OK.

    No alchohol, but I'm suspecting a cell phone was involved.

    Default Why do these accidents keep happening?

    You see it all the time where it is broad daylight with no visibility problems and people are so distracted by things other than driving. Last week a friend of mine's daughter was killed while riding her motorcycle. she was just riding down the road and somebody turned in front of her, she was just 20 years old, what a waste. Dave

    sorry to here about your frends dauter. too many just dont consider driving a dificult task and take it for granit, get too relaxed and start thinking of other stuff insted of driving. car's have gotten so comfortable people seem to forget they are driving i guess, try that in my old 51 pickup LOL you know you are driving when in it, and people stay out of your way too.LOL
