    People are driving to fast on the roads always in a hurry to go nowhere. Slow down people! You’re right Lucky the passenger would be dead.

    My previous comment was not saying that this accident was a result of speed and I am glad the person will survive but you have to wonder what’s going on with what seems like almost daily crashes. I’ve been driving for about 35 yrs, no accidents, never lost control and run off roads hitting trees, etc. When you pay attention to the road, obey traffic and speed laws, you generally don’t lose control of you vehicle and end up in the trees. At least this is the way it’s worked for my family all these years. Y’all slow down, pay attention and drive carefully so no ones familly has to bear the pain of your death or you don’t end up changing your life permanently or taking someone else’s life.

    All these crashes on a daily basis. Still never see any speed enforcement. This week alone, I witnessed two near (within a few feet with one car run off the road) head-on collisions from people passing in unsafe conditions because they wanted to do 80mph instead of the 45-55 posted on 97. I pray everyday we are not splattered on our way to and from work. I guess we don’t need traffic enforcement in Molino though.

    That she wasn’t hurt worse and that no one was in the passenger seat.
