Too much carnage on the roads

There is far too much carnage on the roads, Just this last week a number of people were killed in various types of accidents.

But this week, it's close to home, a relative was hit and killed while walking home last Saturday night.

20 year old Jeffrey Wide was struck from behind by an SUV and died at the scene.

The details still have not been released but the devastation to the family and his many friends has been done.

We've all seen the roadside memorials, unfortunately far too many.

It's so tragic that a small mistake, momentary lapse of attention or driver distraction can cause a fatal accident in the blink of an eye.

EVERYONE MUST drive like their life depends on it, because their life and lives of loved ones DO!

Every time I pass an auto accident marker, I say a prayer for the family that lost the loved one. I can't even begin to imagine how sad that must be.

Oh my! I totally agree with you! I just survived a car accident last week and gee the driver who hit us was also totally drunk! I'm so thankful I came out in one piece!

Btw, thanks for following my blog! I followed yours now too!

I agree with you! I just came out of a car accident myself and so thankful (and lucky I guess) that I survived and in once piece now. I guess seatbelts saved my life too.

Anyway, just passing by to let you know that I gave you the linky love! Just in case you haven't seen yet. And again, thanks for following!

Oh my Don I am so so sorry to hear this.

Anyone who has spent anytime at all in a big truck certainly knows the hazards that are out there. This does not exclude the wreckless and completely unprofessional truckers either.

My prayers and sympathies to you and your family.
