    I am embarassed for your ignorance.

    Head-on collisions have nearly 1,000 times more potential and kenetic energy of any other accident.

    It's a modern engineering miracle that 3 others went to hospital with NON-life threatening injury, instead of body bags as well.

    Alcohol may or may not have played a factor into the cause of this accident,
    but SPEEDS had everything to do with the out come of it.

    This piece of road seems to have a lot of accidents, some fatal. Perhaps it is past time for UDOT to fix the issues with this road. It definitely needs some work to make it safer. Two lanes, with all the traffic, is not enough.

    Not safe at any speed!!!! Should all vehicles be considered not safe at all? I know a lot of the major crashes are speed related but cars should not be turned into bowling balls flying across the landscape.

    There has to be a design flaw and manufacturing defect in the materials and safety devices that don't stay attached to the frames or undercarriage of all these vehicles. Have we allowed car manufactures to design safety out of the vehicle by allowing them to build cars out of PVC pipes just to decrease weight to increase mileage? How much is a life worth? How much is the survival of people in exploding toy cars worth? Why and accident occurs can be blamed on drivers. Why vehicles are exploding on impact and becoming projectiles leaving passengers without any safety is criminal flaws for being so poorly manufactured.

    Its quite mysterious as to why are all these vehicles disintegrating in these collisions? They put tens of thousands of dollars in safety equipment and design yet every crash all the safety devices and air bags and equipment are shredded into pieces making them useless.
