    Ramon was a very good man. He provided my mom with a job and a place for us to call home. It’s not fair to see him go. Prayers to him and his family, also my mother who lost a part of her heart.

    I heard the crash happened and was one of the first people to see the area. Maybe people need to not assume it was the roads fault. If a driver is preoccupied and not paying attention to the road things like this are gonna happen no matter how wide the road is, or how deep the shoulder. Sorry for the families loss, but dont make assumptions that it was at the fault of anyone else.

    Another life lost (possibly) because Florida road specifications evidently do not require dirt, gravel, etc. sloping away from the edges of the paved roads.
    I wonder why that is that way? In other parts of the country the roads have shoulder material that helps when one needs to get back on the pavement at speed.
    I guess there have not been enough lawsuits against the state yet.

    @99 resident
    Wouldn’t it be nice if those in charge of the roads in our area would get ideas from those of use who use the roads on a daily basis as to what would work best for us. Instead, we have people sitting at a desk making decisions that only make matters worse. would be a great place to start, allowing tax-paying residents to have a say in our own community. A simple “What Do You Think?” online forum would be fantastic. They might be surprised with the common-sense ideas they would get!

    I am truly sorry for the families involved in this accident. It’s the second in as many days that was possibly caused by road conditions.

    My condolences to the Roscom family. My heart ached as I turned on to 99 only to see the multitude of rescue vehicles blocking the road. I pray for comfort during this difficult time. The road is extremely narrow (the reason they’re widening it). However, for some reason, someone in charge thought it would be a good idea to REPAVE the road BEFORE widening it. This caused the edge of the road to be even higher off the shoulder and make it even more dangerous when approaching an oncoming logging truck. You have to go off the road in some areas just to make sure you don’t hit someone head on. I’m not saying this caused Mr. Roscom’s accident, but I do think they should maybe rethink things before they start to pave and widen any other narrow roads.
