    First of all ED.....Why do you have to go and post a comment and giving your so-called judgement on a accident. Are you a scientist? No I didn't think so....Don't post what you think are facts. These comments are to pay respects not to determine the factor what happened. Its doesn't matter, a life was lost. Have some respect and leave those comments to yourself..deepest sympathty to the family and Courtney (Melissa's best friend)....

    never heard of the word hydroplain, but now hydroplaning is when a loss of steering or braking control when a layer of water prevents direct contact between road vehicle or aircraft tires and the road or runway surface. likely contributing factor but speed is most often the cause, terrible thing that this had to happen. often when the first sight of rain happens the oil film on the road makes them extremly slick to drive on. but it takes an investigation to determine if the wet roads contributed, of course they did.

    We are all in agreement ED- you are a heartless human. If you wanted to express your sympathy you should have made a comment if not what is your point. My deepest sympathy to Melissa family and friends

    Nope Angie, I have never heard of hydroplain but I have heard of hydroplane.

    Ed, what in the world is your point? That the article headline was incorrect or you suspect some sinister cause or contributing factor in this accident other than wet roads? Unbelievable. My sympathy to the family and friends for both their loss and some posters' ignorance.

    I knew Melissa and she was a beautiful girl. We will all miss her terribly and she will be in all out thoughts and prayers. As will her family.

    How could someone post something so disrespectful, she is a daughter,grandchild,sister,aunt, cousin and friend of many so comments like that should be unspoken.May God bless her family.

    I had the pleasure of meeting her at her brother Chris' wedding in Paintsville. She was a fun and loving girl who will surely be missed by all of her family and friends. God be with her and her family.

    Wet roads can cause accidents. Haven't you ever heard of the word hydroplain? That's when water build up on roads and your tires come off the road and you lose control. It has happened many times! May God be with this family during this time and comfort them. My thoughts and prayers are with you.
