This story does not make very much sense. I drive this road everyday and had David been trying to pass a car on its right, and clipped its back end, then his car would have ended up on the right side of the road, or in the ditch. I would be completely impossible for it to end up where it did. People need to check their facts before they make assumptions like this.We all make mistakes. I have looked away for a second on this road and have had to slam my breaks on because someone tries to turn. We ALL make mistakes. People need to just be happy that no one was hurt. Gald you are okay david :)

Again. i did not try to pass a car on the right!! im not that stupid.... im way better driver then that. i know how to drive a car much better then most elderly people.. but again i did cause this accident so i have no room to talk... why cant people just talk my word for it cause i was driving that car... i was not speeding. i was not wreck-less driving... i didn't notice that theres two cars at a dead stop and i looked back to for literary 2 seconds and before i know it. i was flipped on the other side of the road.. i had no time to break. no time to turn. it was that fast. my natural reactions made me swerve out of the way... Ive almost crashed at these citations and so have many many people Ive known. we all have to be careful when it comes to heavy populated roads with neighbor hood turn ins. thank you everyone for the support, it really is great that people care. and if people were wondering no i was NOT texting or on the phone..

David, the accident doesn't concern me. However, your comments on this page reflect poorly on GHHS and your parents. How do you ever expect to get a decent job with writing skills like those you have displayed here?
