Our society must be going to hell when people engage in useless arguments on the internet, and show not one shred of compassion for the families this affects.
Let the State Troopers do their jobs and make the conclusions... THAT IS what we pay them for!!! Please!
I did many things that needlessly endangered my life when I was in my twenties.
RIP soldiers. It is never easy for family and friends to lose people so young... and it is quite tragic in this case to lose two of them. I hope the family can realize not everyone posting on the internet is an (redacted).
I appreciate the young man's and young woman's service to our country and hope the family finds some peace remembering the good in their kids.

Seriously? I doubt that the width of the road had much to do with this accident. For both people to be killed speed must have been the dominating factor. I agree, Yadkin is dangerous and too narrow but come on! And we need to limit the # of cylinders on cars? Really? What happened to personal responsibility? The lack of it in this country sickens me.

yadkin rd is so narrow because it was changed from a 4 lane road to a 4 lane with center turn lane.... without widening it at all. A stupid decision by the powers that be, even with only 4 lanes it was fast and dangerous.

+++I agree, it was the completely the car's fault. We should require that all autos, trucks, cars, motorcycles, scooters and bicycles be restricited to 70 mph. We don't need to go any faster ever, even for hunting. And that includes NASCAR, they drive entirely too fast out there.
lol, that's great!

Everyone that moves to Fayetteville tries to avoid yadkin road because it is very, very narrow.

Sorry these Soldiers died in this crash. Breaks my heart. Sad all the way around. I'm sure that Soldier was speeding.

All cars with more than 4 cylinders should be banned
Nope, do it by horsepower, if you could get such an idea passed. There are many race cars with 4 cylinders as well as many high performance sports cars.

Obvioulsy this car had a high capacity engine causing the driver to lose control. All cars with more than 4 cylinders should be banned which would slow everyone down resulting in fewer accidents making the roads safer.
