  1. That’s why I always stay partly on the shoulder when coming down that road in either direction. Maybe in 2023 we’ll learn what the cause was: Driver error, medical event or something else.

    1. Newer vehicles are designed to crumple, absorbing the energy of the impact. The buckling is distributed throughout the vehicle to further disperse that energy, causing less injuries to its occupants. More totalled vehicles, but lesser injuries/ fewer fatalities.
