    1. Yeah, that’s it. It is the road’s fault…not speed, not inattention, not the animal that ran out in front of the vehicle…it is the road’s fault and, of course, “the county’s” fault.

    2. They were traveling well over the speed limit. I would guess and would put money on well in excess of 80 mph when they flew past me moments before they crashed. Sharp curves have nothing to do with it if you are doing the speed limit or even just a little over, which they were not.

      1. The car knocked over a power line and three trees. It was so crazy when the helicopters came. They had cop cars and Ambulances flooding the streets and it was hard to get anywhere.
