    1. I said the same thing yesterday. I honestly think its people driving too fast and not paying attention to the road.

  1. I’m still wondering how you have a head on crash with both lanes going in the same direction? It didn’t say that one car was travelling on the wrong side of 235…

  2. My daughter and I were heading northbound on Route 5 last night right around Lockes Hill Road around 7:15 and a driver was coming straight at us going the wrong way at about 50 m.p.h. It was so scary!

    1. Well, you see…one of the vehicles has to have entered the separated travel lane going the wrong direction. Then, they continue to travel in that wrong direction…until they meet another vehicle going in the correct direction. Then(!), either one, or both vehicles fail to stop as they approach each other. Crazy, huh?

    2. Exactly what the guy below me explained. It is a dual highway so yes I was able to get over into my right hand lane..
