    He was not speeding, just because you do something like that does'nt mean anybody else does. The first thing my husband done when he got home last night, we prayed for the people in the car, and their family. We are very sorry that this happened,but he done everything he could.

    It was just a matter of time...This stretch of Capital Circle seems to be "the" place for big hauling trucks to put-the-pedal down to make up time.
