    My heart truly goes out to these families. I left for work at 6:30am and it was so foggy out that in a lot of spots, I couldn’t see. This is where people need to leave earlier if you have to be some where. It’s not worth killing someone or yourself over for not using your common sense. Lesson for everyone, you never pass when it’s that foggy out and you always leave early to give yourself plenty of time to get to your destination. Because someone was in a hurry, a life got taken. This is something this lady will have to live with for the rest of her life. Very sad for all and prayers to everyone.

    People passing like this on that road put everyone at risk. Too many people have died in the past few months on this road for the same reason. Do the math people, you don’t even gain minutes, and you risk so much. I am sorry for the people who have lost loved ones.

    I ride a motorcycle. I see this hurry up to go nowhere all the time. I bet
    the guy killed was not in a rush or late, we will never know. To pass a car is dangerous 4 or 5 stupid.
