    No, I'm sure it was the van's fault. When are we going to stop making vehicles so available. They are so dangerous.

    The mini-van did not hit a guard rail. The driver drove the mini-van into the guard rail.

    These public wrecks are as terrible as they are preventable Yep, as opposed to those private wrecks that aren't.....

    I'd bet that the deceased were not wearing seat belts. As LOCALYOKEL says, "Preventable".

    I like the way you phrased that. Thank you.
    I have been through that area many times. I have traveled at a safe speed. I offer as evidence.....I have never had a wreck with that damage.
