    My condolences to the family members of the deceased. I see this kind of thing all the time. I have become the person that yells at vehicles to slow down on the side streets. This is a horrible accident that caused one life prematurely . I’m going to quote my step father “take it slow to let the youngsters grow”. Simple words. There is no need to drive like a maniac. For visitors, y’all are on vacation. No need to drive aggressively. For residents, most of us are on are way to work. No real thrill in showing up 2 minutes early.

    Why was the updated story with the specific details removed? It had pictures, the names of the people in the truck and even the comments from the Local highway patrol. Why can’t the news just report the facts? Why do they always want to cover up the facts?

    Fact is, it was not an accident, dude was driving reckless on purpose. Passenger was ejected, truck rolled over him. Bless his soul..
