    In light of the Holiday season and the rush in which we are wont to be at this time, please give yourself time to be safe. Putting yourself in a position where you need to rush around endangers not only you, but those around you.

    A neighbor friend of ours was killed yesterday afternoon in an accident caused by a rushed driver. In a driving snow, the rushed driver was going too fast for conditions and slid into the median barrier which caused him to slide out into traffic which caused the collision that took the life of our friend.

    As a single mother, she was out doing hospice visits and trying to make a living to support her three boys, ages 16, 14, and 12. Tragedy had already struck their family about 9 months ago when they lost their father to cancer.

    One careless act of driving too fast has ruined a family and an otherwise happy time for many. It is better to be late than to ruin a family with rushed driving.

    Please take your time this Holiday Season, and always remember that a seemingly minor decision to go faster than we are able can have a major life changing/ending impact on not only ourselves but our fellow men.

    Have a safe, happy, holiday season.

    Very sorry to hear this about your friend and my prayers are with the children and the rest of the family.

    Is there a fund setup for the kids that I can donate too? I'd like to donate some money to the family to help with whatever they need it for.

    It's sobering to think how one poor decision can lead to such a catastrophic end. So sorry to hear about your friend. My condolences and prayers go to the friends, family and the children of this tragedy. Hopefully everyone in PreCentral will read this and take an extra moment to be safe during the holiday season and always. Sorry Pogey!

    My cousin's 17 year old daughter and 2 friends were killed the same way on a snowy day 2 years ago. My heart and prayers go out to those 3 boys. Please let us know if a fund does indeed get set up for the family. I know first-hand what a tragedy like that can do to kids for years to come.

    Thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for sharing this with the community. My condolences to you and to the family and friends. It's becoming increasingly dangerous to travel our roads due to the weather as you point out and it certainly is tragic when something like this, I could never live with that.
    If "If's" and "But's" were candy and nuts we'd all have a Merry Christmas!

    I am really sorry about your friend's tragedy and the reminder about safe driving is very timely. You are a good guy for doing this Pogey. Hopefully it can make some people realize its not only themselves they endanger but others too when they drive recklessly.

    In my area alone over the past 3 days, 13 people have been killed due to reckless and thoughtless driving.

    One example was a car that hydroplaned into a semi and rolled over. The semi driver jumped out and pulled the victims out of harms way only to be killed by another driver going 80 mph in a driving rain.

    This is beyond rediculous. I know I am preaching to the choir here, but tell everyone you see to slow down. Have a happy holiday season and don't be in such a hurry. Life is short as it is.
