  1. I saw this accident if it wasn’t for my friend i know it would be me. so sorry for them and what I saw..thank god for the rescue team

  2. Hopefully everyone will be alright. My prayer goes out to them. Yes there has been way too many accidents especially these past couple months in this area but there’s already a light so what else can be done to avoid all these people getting hurt??

  3. This breaks my heart. Ridiculous area between gate 2 and 3 where it turns into 235 Raceway…. I can hear it any given Friday/Saturday night and I’m not that close to the area. Coming up on this accident there was a mustang and a 3 wheel 2 seater, the 2 seater was darting in and out of traffic until it caught up to mustang and they started racing….. came up on the accident and obviously had to stop but COME ON…. That’s a 4 lane that turns quick to a 2 lane and no traffic signs stating as a warning to drivers, as if they’d pay attention if they’re racing anyhow. You’d think with gas prices so high these idiots would stop racing….

    1. The mustang and 3 wheeler you mentioned wasn’t the cars in the accident, it was a Ford Fusion and Jeep so what are you talking about

  4. If people learned how to drive this wouldn’t be an issue I’ve had people pull out right in front of me traveling down a highway and pull out and take off slow the police need to start citing these drivers that just have no respect for anyone else on the roads the one that put other lives in jeopardy because they don’t know how to drive or how to wait until they have the right of way!

  5. It’s about time this intersection gets a nice, big, traffic circle. Elected officials?…I hear an election is coming up.

  6. Mr. Hall is an 89 year old widower and a pillar in my community. For all of you who claims he was racing is outrageous. Get your facts straight before you condemn someone.

  7. Check the Maryland Judiciary Case Search for the driver. He shouldn’t even be driving according to his record. This is just so sad and unnecessary.
