Two Leavenworth children were taken to the hospital after a single-vehicle accident early Saturday morning on Interstate 70. Peggy E. Williams, 51, was driving a 2006 Buick Lacrosse westbound near 110th Street in Kansas City, Kan. An unknown vehicle cut her off, and she swerved to avoid hitting it. Her car went off the roadway and rolled once, coming to rest 40 to 50 yards from the roadway, according to a Kansas Highway Patrol report.

Two passengers in Williams’ car, Maliki Parison, 9, and Joey C. Andruk, 8, were taken to Children’s Mercy Hospital in Kansas City. Their conditions were not available Saturday night, but Joey was listed as being possibly injured in the report, and Maliki was listed as injured. Williams was listed as possibly injured. The accident occurred at 1 a.m., and the driver of the unknown vehicle fled the scene. No vehicle description was provided in the report.

You are better off to hit a vehicle in your lane if you are going the same direction than swerving. You are so much better able to control you vehicle! However if you are facing someone coming at you in your lane GO RIGHT, GO RIGHT, GO RIGHT. This is a basic rule of safety on the road.

So you want barriers not only down the middle of the road but down the sides also? Why not just build tunnels?

I say no more phantom vehicles cutting people off.
