    Tires look a little slick to me? May have added to the problem?

    All because you live on Jack’s Branch and it wasnt wet where you are doesn’t mean it wasnt wet where he was. Have you know he was headed to work and doing the speed limit because the roads were wet.

    Yes, you are part of the generation that doesn’t understand how someone can read a story like this and move on with their lives without putting their 2 cents in. Thanks for your 2 cents, I hope you feel better now.

    So many are so sensitive now days. My comment was not directed at any one individual and was not personal. Injury and/or death is very personal, and what I wrote was written for those who do not know this. I did not until I was told. There are WAY too many loses of control around here. Was only trying to help those who may not know. Like the young who may not have been taught. Why do so many take any advice so personally and negatively? Cannot believe some were offended. I guess I AM of another generation. And, so thankful for it.

    I live on Jacks Branch Rd for many years and I was a few minutes behind this wreck and it was not raining nor the roads were not wet. Every single person that comes up and down this road thinks it’s a drag strip and they don’t care what time of day it is either.

    In the last few yrs,auto wrecks have went up 65 % I think thr reason is speed…more so than cell phones.More roll-overs than ever seen. That takes speed.Look at roadways& ditches.You can tell how fast.Plz slow down…..Thank you. Your family needs you.

    It doesnt matter if he jerked the wheel or not. I was in an accident just like this a few months ago and when your in the moment you dont think about certain things your just trying to do whatever it takes to regain control. Things just happen but of course people are going to assume things because they think they know everything.

    he didn’t jerk the wheel. He tried to gently get the car back on the road, but the roads were wet. and he okay thanks for asking. No need to assume that he jerked the wheel.

    I was the one involved. I did not jerk the wheel. I let off the gas and tried to straighten the car out but as I had the wheels turnt to get back straight, I caught traction and it spun me around and I went backwards into the ditch. But all is good. I’m sore but I’m back home

    I know the man that was driving the car he is a very good driver. He never speeds and is always paying attention. I ao thankful that he is ok.

    This is just so sad. SO MANY losing control. Do they teach driver’s ed in school anymore? Maybe it would help to have articles in news media and public service announcements to inform drivers how to keep control when a wheel or wheels run off the pavement. As in: DO NOT JERK THE STEERING WHEEL ! Instead slow down gently and slowly and gently turn back onto the roadway at about a 35 or 45 degree angle.. At least that is what my Daddy taught me many years ago, and it works……..Thank God, and him, or I may now be alive today.
