Default Horrible Traffic Accidents Today

MY GOSH!!!!!! Was it a full moon last night or what. Last night even around here there were cars racing even thru the neighborhood and squeling tires (so NOT the norm). A couple of times there were large trucks coming thru (What is up with THAT at THAT hour???). I could hear a few instances of cars/motorcycles racing up on 190. Then get up and the traffic report is HORRID!!!! The accident in Bedford last night that killed a driver. The accident on LBJ where the car slammed so hard into the back of an 18 wheeler the neighbors could hear it and killed two people. The mother that threw her two kids off of Jim Miller onto I30 (they lived).

I sure hope the rest of the day is MUCH better. For all of y'all that are commuting this morning............. be careful.

Wow, I hadn't heard about all this, how awful.

Not sure what's up, but it's spring break for some schools, and it's lighter later because of the time change. There might be teens out in their cars squealing the tires. My kids have spring break next week and are having spring fever - I feel sorry for the teachers this week that have had to deal w/sleepy kids because of the time change and those antsy for break next week.

My bus ride into work went right by the area were the lady thru her kids over the bridge. You have to wonder why a person would do something so horrible. I'm just glad they are all still alive.

My commute was so easy this morning I thought it was holiday or something. Very light traffic and no problems for me.

It was REALLY light traffic getting the kids to school and back home. But those highwyas were horrible from the looks of the traffic reports.

Heard the kids were doing good in that one terrible tragedy. Family had already been involved w/ CPS and Can you imagine what was going thru their heads

I heard that witnesses said the kids were screaming and trying to fight off their mother. Makes me want to cry. Those children deserve better.

It's just another mother to add to the list of crazies like Yates, Smith, etc. Of course, there are dads too that kill or injure their children. The poor innocent little ones; it's just too sad.
