  1. I am very sorry for these two people but i would like to know how this happened on a straight stretch of road. Clealry someone was not paying attention or going to fast for this to happen. I am pleased to see that we are no longer calling these incidents accidents as they are clearly not an accident and as stated they are a crash due to someone’s stupidity or lack of concentration.

  2. Well yes – looks like human error – but to be quite frank- when is it not human error?
    I am a rep on the road and I come across bad intersections etc all the time….so caution is always the key. A road doesnt cause a crash – people do.
    I know the lady that was involved in this accident. She has three young children at home and I
    pray she pulls through.
