      • Carmine, First let me say that I know that all folks that drive pickup and SUV’s are not reckless drivers, I know a number of folks that drive them and they are responsible drivers, What I’m getting at is that there are a certain segment of both male and female drivers that are not responsible on the roads, Their thinking that since their vehicle is bigger that they can intimidate other drivers by tail gating them if their not going fast enough, Even if there already going a little over the speed limit and are in the far right lane but sometimes there is only one lane and they will ride their tail for as long as they can and that is just plan wrong and those are the ones that will cause the accidents and then take off without stopping, There are too many auto accidents around here and it comes from irresponsible driving, Why is so many people so in a hurry to get into the cemetery.

  • Pine Cabin is right where the trucking company is on 41 and its on the north bound side. I hope the driver will be okay. Maybe he had a medical condition.

  • Where on Hwy 41? It’s a long stretch of roadway and a cross street or other landmark would be helpful.
