    Maybe after Lincoln Co. gets the four lane that were supposed to get this will end alot of the accidents that occur on 27. Pulaski county four lane is great if we can just get those people that have never driven on a four lane to get it right.

    I have no idea what happened here BUT I drive US27 ALL the time and people pass in my face almost everytime I travel US27 and I think it needs to be monitored more especially when they pass on double yellow lines. I pray for this man's family and these two people that were hurt. I know how it feels to be hurt on this road. I was rear ended on this road in 1999 it's a bad road to travel.
