  1. I am amazed that the other driver survived. That is a bad stretch of road. I’ve seen so many near head on crashes over the years, and have personally been in two very close calls.
    The ones I have seen have always been because of some idiot passing where they shouldn’t,
    but the story doesn’t say that was the case in this accident.
