    Reading the posts on the bottom of the R/S article, one is struck by the fragility of life, but also how many other lives will be impacted by the use of poor judgement for a few minutes in the middle of the night. 1:30 A.M., if the car was traveling south, he was just coming up from under the RR underpass. Neither of the drivers probably saw the other but if the car had been traveling at a descent rate of speed, it could have probably been avoided. So sad, so sad. . .

    Amen to the above post: SPEED KILLS!!
