    Hoping and praying everyone is ok. However, Great Mills Road is a race track for many individuals. Police need to do more do reduce speeding up and down Great Mills Rd.

      Pretty sure speeding had little to nothing to do with this, and far more to do with someone on a phone not paying attention.I would rather the police spend time ticketing distracted cell phone users than wasting time with a radar gun.

      You do know speed is rarely the cause of an accident? It’s usually someone that’s distracted and not paying attention. The speed limit is already way too low right there as is. 2bless, you’re ignorant.

    You can’t just pull out in front of someone…. Stay OFF THE PHONE AND PAY ATTENTION TO WHAT YOU ARE DOING ….

    seriously….unknown. you have to be an idiot to think speed and alcohol was not the cause Great Mills is the sister beltway to 235

      Glad you are here to bolster your point with facts…..oh wait, you think calling people idiots makes your case. Good work, Sherlock, case closed. In reality, those things could be factors, but we don’t know that. 9am does make alcohol less likely, and the average speed isnt all that high through there. Far more likely is that someone failed to look pulling out and the oncoming driver didnt think that person would pull out.
