    If you had travelled this area yesterday you would understand how this happened.The roads were terrible and there was a nasty ground drift.Don't judge if you hadn't seen it for yourself.

    Really Andy.... I drive this road 6 days a week for work and school, and it is often not the driver's fault for accidents like this one. Yes people speed, but unfortunatley it is never the speeders that go in the ditch. This road changes from good conditions to poor conditions in a matter of feet, and considering the plows have done very poor work keep the drifts pushed back, or even plowing the roads before 5pm, I would say you should rethink your comment.

    Really.........maybe the roads were just icy...don't be so pompious sometimes the roads are just not cleared.......hence the 1 hour delay for school.

    Another driver who should have their license revoked. Hopefully insurance goes up for this one. There is no such thing as a motor vehicle accident. It is a motor vehicle collision. The driver was either driving too fast, without due care and attention, not paying attention to road conditions, weather conditions, traffic conditions, or had a vehicle that was mechanically unsafe. Either way, this is 100% the driver's fault.

      I drove through the same area going 60km a half hour before and almost did the same thing and I have been driving for 40 years with no accidents! Judging others does not define who they are defines who you are !
