    Instead of criticizing the authorities, how about doing something positive like sending up prayers. You never know when it may be one of your loved ones who makes a "bad decision"!!!! I am continuing to pray for the victims and their families! May God comfort them in their time of need.

    Rain caused the crash? How about bad tires or excessive speed for the weather? Rain I don't yhink so.

    "authorities say rain caused a two vehicle crash." Nonsense! Weather has never caused a crash or wreck! It is the bad decisions by the one behind the steering wheel, always!
