Yeah, those things are pretty heavy and get them going at a fast speed. I've been to some many car accidents that it doesn't faze me anymore. We crawl into the cars, bandage the patients and get them to the hospital. It sucks for the innocent victims.

The 16 y.o. girl driver was killed, along with two of her friends. A fourth is in the hospital in critical condition.

Cops said it looked like the girl tried to beat the truck through the intersection, as she left no skid marks. Her dad is a truck driver, too.

Fortunately, all evidence, police, and many witnesses said DIL was not responsible in any manner. She passed all DOT tests, no BAC, etc.

DIL is very emotional. That's a good thing. Granddaughter saw it coming, and the impact. She is acting like nothing happened. That is not a good thing. Fortunately, we have a very good friend who is a child counselor, who is going to visit with her.

They should be home sometime tonight. The wreck happened in Georgia.

There are no "why"'s in life. Life is just what it is.

In the twinkling of an eye...

This reminds me of something a friend told me. He was diagnosed some years back with a rare kidney cancer. The doc told him, "Do everything you want to do, say everything you want to say. The survival rate for this is 2%."

He did both. PTL, he turned out to be a 2%'er.

So, if there is anything you need to say, say it today, they may...you may... not come home tonight.
Glad to hear everyones okay.

Being a cycle rider for the last 18 yrs, I have lost at least 8 brother's (friend's) to a tragic death while riding.
I have a sad feeling in my heart everytime I think of them, I grew up since childhood with a few. I feel for the people in the car wrong place, wrong time it's sad.
But when it comes down to it, it could be any one of us, anytime, anywhere, so do your'e family & friend's a favor and watch out for the other guy.

Thats all
