    I was so glad other motorists were willing to help us move the victims from the burning wreckage last night. With the extent of their injuries and the speed with which that fire consumed the truck a group effort was certainly needed.

    It was a horrible accident, we actually saw the Life Flight land on the interstate. After seeing the vehicle prayers go out to the occupants, they will definitely need our prayers.

    "The best way to get hurt is to try and do the speed limit on this wanna be Autobahn." Then keep up with traffic and keep the accidents from happening. Often times accidents on 95 are caused by a chain reaction of sudden braking because of some slowpoke just putt-putting along. If you want sightsee, US-301 is still there for you to use.

    If you have ridden on I 95 lately this is no shock. The best way to get hurt is to try and do the speed limit on this wanna be Autobahn.
