    I passed by the accident yesterday around 8:30am headed to Walnut Hill. There were still emergency vehicles present. An empty stretcher by the burned out vehicle. Special Note: not too further down the road the knucklehead behind me. Passed me in a blind no passing zone. So, think about that yall!
