Prayers for the family. Very dangerous highway. Especially at night! Curves, deer, crazy drivers, it's pitch black and if it is foggy you can't see two feet in front of you. Last week I was driving home from a family members home in Tongie around 9pm. The vehicle in front of me was driving very slowly and swerving back and forth. When we finally arrived in Lawrence, we passed her and realized she was on her PHONE! I realize this accident was during the day but they need to widen the highway all the way to Tongie! I am sure this isn't the first fatality on 24/40.

Roll-over! Five teenagers inside, all wearing seat belts! Worst injury, broken collarbone. Yes seat belts do save lives

I could be wrong, but I'm quite sure that it's illegal to construct stone walls in the public right of way.

the man had something obviously wrong because he was swerving before he even hit the woman and his truck took out several metal mile markers and he didnt hit a stone wall...I was there and this poor man im sure didnt even know what happened....it was sad and too bad he passed away!
