      Please … NO pictures, as a courtesy to the family .

        Why even report it! It’s just too upsetting. We need to stop printing information that may upset people.

      That’s a tad morbid…

        Nah, just some Scared Straight for ya! Scared? Say ya scared!

      • Brit on January 31, 2019 at 10:17 am

        You can take pictures of the crash after the people have been safely removed. Probably just wants to see how badly the front of the cars are crushed to see how “bad” it is

    • Ed on January 30, 2019 at 9:50 pm

      Having lived at that location for 32 years, I can attest that there are very few, if any, vehicles traveling 35mph in that area.

    • D on January 30, 2019 at 10:47 pm

      Speed limit is 45 there, and very close to a 50mph zone, so cars are generally travelling 50+

      Ok? It’s a head on collision. Even if both were doing 35 at the time of impact that’s like hitting a solid brick wall going 70, smart one.

      • Anonner on January 31, 2019 at 12:01 pm

        Not at all a brick wall doesn’t move.

      Just because it is a 35 mph section, doesn’t mean people drive at 35….and you want to see pictures?

    • Wrong on January 31, 2019 at 7:15 am

      It’s not a 35 zone. It is a 50 mph zone that turns into 45 further west. If both cars are traveling 50, you get impact of 100. Nobody wants to see pictures except you.

      Who wants to see an accident where little kids are hurt?

  2. Diggerodell72 on January 30, 2019 at 9:51 pm

    Who does the speed limit anymore? Too many people get killed or seriously injured on route 6. Too many to count over the years.

      You need to control your grammar.

    Since everyone, in typical 2019 fashion, is just supremely outraged by the interest in pics, I am curious about some things. Before I continue, please go find your safe space, that is going to be very damaging to your fragile psyche. Ok, everyone safe? Cool. What exactly do you think is going to be in the pics? You think there will be pics of dead people? Severed limbs? What? Every time there is an accident, there are pics of the damaged vehicles. Are damaged vehicles so disturbing to you that you need to go to your safe space? Relax a little bit…

  6. Mind your own business on January 31, 2019 at 10:05 pm

    How about you respect the family and go find something else to do!!!

    • Back off on February 1, 2019 at 1:39 pm

      Why because the driver was on drugs and had her kids in the car… oh wait EMS had to use narcan to revive her… maybe she should of thought about her kids before getting behind the wheel…. how about that….

        You’re forgetting that there’s another family involved…

    • Brad Steele on February 2, 2019 at 8:04 am

      Great! Take your own advice, we’ll be just fine without your pansy azz chiming in. Next!

    Sad part about this whole situation…… the driver that caused this accident was under the influence…. EMS had to use narcan on her… so yes let’s post the pictures and show everyone what happens when you choose drugs.

    • Anonymous on February 4, 2019 at 10:59 am

      Did both adults have to have Narcan administered? And do we know the condition of everyone that was in the accident at this time?

    • Friend on February 4, 2019 at 4:07 pm

      How do you know the driver was on drugs? Nothing in the article states Narcan was used

      • Anonymous on February 7, 2019 at 9:53 pm

        People know the truth..no point in hiding behind it. Drugs are a bad thing and even worse when you choose to get behind the wheel with kids in your vehicle and put EVERYONE in danger. Goes to show addicts will always put drugs first, even before their own kids.

    Wow, what happened to her? Her kids’dad died of an overdose a couple of years back…

    She and I used to work together and she had it together, then… so sad…

    • Kn on February 4, 2019 at 9:06 pm

      Sorry to burst your bubble , but he did not die of an overdose!#
