Default Yet ANOTHER Tragedy in WV

Last month my daughter lost one of her good friends in a drowning accident in the Shenandoah River. Now, Wednesday night, my oldest son lost a good friend, that was on the track team with him in a car accident. We had a 6 car pile up here in Berkley Co., WV, and 3 people died in the pile up. A dump truck, driving too fast, went left of center, and it started a major chain of events. The first lady in a Corolla never had a chance. The dump truck just ran right over her car, and the 2 young men died instantly when the dump truck plowed into them next.

This young man was 18 years old, and a month away from starting college. He had a real talent in the long jump, and would have gone so far with it. I hope this is the last one of our young people to die this summer.

Take Care of each other!
Jaime

How tragic. Our young people always feel so invulnerable, and we know they're not.

So sorry to hear this Jaime. Our hearts go out to these kids and their families. So sad that they never really got to LIVE their lives.

Those trucks are incredible. A semi failed to stop for light here a few years ago, and ran over several cars, killing everyone is all the vehicles. He was sleepy from being on the road too long.
