    This area of the road has more and more wrecks. Something needs to be done about this before someone gets killed. Even the shoulder of the road on this side of Northview High School is awful!!! I don’t know what it’s going to take before this problem gets fixed. But I’m glad to know that no one was seriously injured.

    The elderly man is my father.. Thank God my father and the other man was not hurt. All of his children and grandson have told him numerous times that due to some health problems that he needs to stay while driving in the Brewton AL area only. I’m so sorry that this accident happened. our family is working on this problem to try to explain to my dad that he has to limit his driving area within a 15 mile radius from his home. All of our family will decide what is best for our dad to make sure that he is safe and also other drivers on the road.
