    231 is an awful highway. There are too many dangerous curves. People on here are just talking out of the side of their necks as they say. And to make you fools feel better on another site it reads that it has been confirmed that speed was not a factor. She just ran off the side of the road went down an enbankment flipped twice and hit a tree at the bottom.

    To all you people that jump on a bandwagon to make comments about society when a tragedy like this happens, please consider who else might be reading your comments. Sandra was a co-worker and also my best friend's girlfriend. Please show some respect and direct your comments in the right direction. She was a sweet girl and she will be extremely missed by her family and everyone who knew her. I have driven that same stretch of road many times and the particular curve that she "wrecked" in is in desperate need of a guardrail. When you don't know all the particulars in a situation, try and remember that no one knows exactly what happened unless you were there. My heart is broken for her family and friends.

    nope, not native NC logic, just logic. But then you must be from elsewhere to get your back up over my statements. It's my opinion, based on years of driving around NC and elsewhere.

    At least you're admitting there is no factual basis behind your assumption. lol

    @scubagirl, so you are suggesting that per capita of drivers. Most or more are from other states? 50% or more of drivers on the road in North Carolina aren't from North Carolina? That is the reason for bad drivers? Also, suggesting that most local North Carolina that are from North Carolina don't make up a good majority of accidents in the state?

    Exactly. Sounds like she's using good old native North Carolinian logic behind her argument.
