  1. FHS says:

    Why hasn’t that road been straightened out…. how many roll overs has there been. a prime case of imminent domain.

  2. Sandy says:

    FHS, I’ve wondered the same thing. I wish it could be fixed before it actually lives up to its name.

  3. Wesley Carnicle says:

    Sandy it has it name for a reason

  4. lacey resident says:

    what you talking about.people has died in that curve

  5. Allenms10 says:

    Why should some one have to give up their property because people can’t read or obey traffic sign’s, That’s seems to be the fix for every thing in this country if some one doesn’t like something then change it doesn’t matter if it’s been that way for 50ty years. It’s time for people to start taking responsibility for their own actions that driver clearly didn’t obey the traffic signs for that curve and he paid the price. It’s just like taking prayer out of our schools we did because some one didn’t like it , Wonting to take In God we Trust off American currency because they don’t like it, Taking guns out of the hand of the people who do right because of the ones who don’t, I say if you don’t like something in America then move to another country and see how changing their religion and other things you don’t like goes for you. , don’t won’t to learn our language then don’t come over here we speak English not Spanish or Chinese, Japanese or any other language, Learn English or get out and move. So if you don’t like something quit trying to punish those of us who do like the way things are or don’t go or don’t look but quit your complaining look where it’s gotten America at now so we know it doesn’t work or stop just because we change to fit the people from other countries or other peoples beliefs. THATS ALL I HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT. INGOD I TRUST!!!!

  6. Just saying says:

    How many trucks are going to roll over before something is done to the road? Luckily no one has been in the other lane when the accidents have happened. Straightening out the curve would have been ideal back when they fixed the bridge a few years back. At least put more signs warning drivers of the sharp curve.
