So sad---it's heart breaking. I hope the families find a way to heal.

But for the vicissitudes of existence, there go I.

Life is short. Life is beautiful.

I hope they died quickly. And in each other's grasp.

Just like guns, people in the States will offer prayers and condolences but nothing will change. Traffic is so backed up where I live because trucks are going 50 in both lanes on a 75 mph road, blocking passing. So many accidents because drivers getting peeved and speeding around or semi truck drivers having sleep deprivation.

Pshaw. American roads are some of the safest in the word.

Not even in the top twenty of the safest roads in the world....

Sad. A slight lack of concentration and it is over. A clear Friday afternoon, East Texas town. The couple was from Vidor.

The road is a semi-divided hwy, straight road, flat, unobstructed view for 2 miles in both directions.

The driver didn't look. That's all. I can't imagine a safer road.

Here's where it happened:

They loved each other, married each other and died together. Terrible tragedy. So sad.

Based on what, pray tell? The the website: It's True 'Cause I say so?

Not sure about the driving skill of those involved in this tragic accident, but a lot of the drivers in Texas are like cowboys at a rodeo. It's pretty wild compared to other parts of the U.S., and the design of the roads is different. For example, when entering a highway, the merging lane is more like a short merging jag of roadway and you've got to yield. Also, you've got to come to a full stop before merging (if I'm not mistaken), then you've got to floor it when you have a chance to get on the highway.

It's still a most tragic and unfortunate accident on such a special day as this.

RIP
