    I was on my way home from work last night when i was nearly hit by this woman. I went completely off the road to dodge her and when i looked in my rearview mirror i watched her hit the car behind me head on. My heart & prayers goes out to the families of these victims.

    I just found out about this today, Betty was my sister's boyfriends grandmother and a really nice lady, she welcomed my sister my daughter and I into her home when we went to visit lake lure. My prayers are with this family, and if they needed anything they know where to find me. I hope the other victims are ok, and understand what happened on this sad day.

    I feel bad for the lady's family. She nearly hit me as I was on my way home from work. Travelling at those speeds would have made surviving any kind of impact nearly impossible
