    Wow! A SUV hitting a Honda head on - I'm surprise anyone in the Honda lived.

    Praying for this poor family who has lost their father.

    God bless.

    This is not far from where I live. I have almost been hit head on in this area several times. I have no idea why, but people cannot seem to stay on their side of the road especially in the curve thats just down the road from where the accident happened.
