    Im almost 100% certain that Cantonment has 4 firemen on duty 24/7 paid by your tax dollars Joshua M. because the volunteers in Cantonment couldnt get a truck out of the barn to respond to calls and I said almost 100% certain bc im 120% certain. You dont even know where your own money is being spent.

    My wife was in that spot near the time this happened. I’m (obviously) so glad she wasn’t involved. I hope everyone that was involved is ok, however. Looks like the red car (possibly a Mercedes? I’m not great with cars) may have tried to cross the highway and was hit by the oncoming black charger? Well again, I hope everyone is ok. This is why it’s important to wear a seatbelt: you never know when tragedy will strike.
