    That comment was very RUDE of you Mrs. Susan. I personally know this family and Steve is in the hospital fighting for his life, while his new daughter and wife are waiting helplessly by his bedside night after night. My prayers go out to this family. It's so funny how some people choose to focus on petty unimportant things. We are talking about a human life for crying out loud!!

    This accident happened right in front of my house. It was like something exploded. Thank you so much for reporting on this, now maybe these people out here will realize this not the Audubon. Every since they opened this to four lanes it has been a nightmare.Again thank you so very much for the coverage.
