    I witnessed this tragic accident. It happened right in front of me. I immediately stopped and went into the wooded area where the car was. It was terrible but I wanted the young man to know he wasn’t alone. The highway patrol was supposed to contact me but never did. I don’t even know the young man’s name but I send my deepest condolences to his family.

    Prayers for the family.

    But people, you can’t blame the road. The road didn’t cause the accident. The person driving the car caused the accident. Maybe have a petition drawn up to reduce the speed limit?

    He probably would have survived if he had been wearing a seatbelt. Sad.

    I live on mobile hwy right past Klondike and it’s a dang speedway thru there. Very ridiculous of people’s driving habits nowadays.

    Tragic loss of life. The 2 long straight roads that are the arterial roads of my home community , Klondike Rd. & Eight Mile Creek Rd. , have long been dangerous for people exceeding the posted 35 MPH speed limits. The more houses built in Beulah , the more people shortcut through the Klondike Community to get to I 10 or Pine Forest Rd. The curve on Eight Mile has had it’s share of accidents too. Unfamiliar roads , darkness & speed are dangerous combinations. My sympathies go out to this man’s loved ones.
