    Hope everyone is OK.

    Here we go blaming the big bad SUVs...I believe the article said the woman driving the Mitsubishi(article doesnt state what kind of car it was) hit the SUV. Oh excuse me....the SUV must have jumped out in front of her...my bad!

    Durham has been crunched a wreck last week on 85 one on Saturday that I went by and and this on e this morning. That is a bad place to drive through at certain hours although I am not familiar with the place that the wreck was this morning.

    That intersection is dangerous. There are accidents there "almost daily. NC DOT really should do something about it."

    The last time I checked it wasn't the intersections causing the accidents it was the careless non-attentive drivers. Why do we have to depend on a government entity to take responsibility for our mistakes and issues. If drivers in general would slow down, hang up the phone and pay attention to what was going on around them I bet you could reduce the accident rate drastically.

    The intersection is dangerous only because people no long stop at STOP SIGNS! Someone is forever trying to beat the traffic and ends up causing worse problems.

    Very sad. Sounds like they all have a fight ahead of them. Prayers to all.

    ltbarkley you are so right on! My SUV killed three people today in a random shooting at a mall. That is a total of six, which includes sneaking out late at night and doing drive by run-overs.

    Wow-- what a coincidence. I was just riding thru there yesterday and was thinking, "there's no way to go the posted 35mph here", you'll get ran over. I was running 55mph along with the flow of traffic and was still getting passed- and the posted speed limit is 35mph. This is also less than 1/4 mile from the police sub station. Police could post to cops, each within 2 miles apart on that stretch of road, and write more speeding tickets than Durham's court could handle.

    Just remember - for every 1 life a SUV's size saves, it takes away FIVE.
