    Speed was involved with that one? Who woulda thought?

    I mean, don't you usually speed up when you are passing someone, be it legally or illegally?
    Yea, most people would be able to figure that out.. then again, most people would also be able to understand why teens are involved in more wrecks than any other age group. That is, most people...

    The accident happened on Shiloh Church Road close to midnight. Troopers said the crash was a chain reaction that started when 19-year-old Robert Morrison passed a motorcycle in a no-passing zone.

    Morrison's truck hit a Chevrolet Blazer in the oncoming lane, troopers said. Investigators said the motorcycle, carrying Jay and Carrie Thompson, then slammed into the back of the truck. The Mooresville couple died.

    The driver of the SUV, Shirley Jones, also died at the scene. Her husband was critically injured and her daughter was treated at the hospital and released.

    Morrison was airlifted to the Chapel Hill Burn Center with burns over almost half of his body.
    Had this "kid" used his head for something other than a hatrack, he would not have destroyed two families as well as his own.

    He deserves to be charged with intetional vehicular homicide.

    I just assisted a guy my age (25ish) who had nailed a tree head on at 70+ mph.

    I don't think they should focus solely on teenagers... bad decisions cost lives. Speed is merely a deciding factor in how bad the result is going to be. Even if everyone was going the speed limit (say it was 45 or 55mph) that still would have been a horrible accident and the outcome may or may not have been the same.

    We have that system too but a little modified. We don't care about the first number which is what card it is, and the second number is what questions was the "bad" question to make the determinate.

    We just say "EMS Delta response at......"
    Works good for us.
