  1. That’s the road I live on. The county has done a horrible job at maintaining the roads this year. A lot of people try to do the rural speed limit but the condition really only allows you to do that at half speed. Sad to hear, I hope those surviving the incident heal quickly.

  2. This is awful 😒. We live on 245 and the range roads have never been in such horrible condition. You can’t even move over for oncoming vehicles without risking going in the ditch, because the graders leave the shoulders full of soft dirt and grass. Every drive feels like a risk.

  3. I live on range road 245 and the road is horrible, even going slowly it’s dangerous. i hit the ditch once and almost rolled my vehicle. so sad to hear 😞

  4. This is my step daughters mom. All the children losing their mother to such a tragic accident. It is so sad my heart is breaking for the kids and family.

  5. I was with them before the accident. They had just dropped me off, then my friend who was the driver showed up and told me what happened. My boyfriend and I drove over there to help, I still see her in the vehicle…She was such a happy person and always told me to smile. I will miss her warm hugs and her crazy attitude. Rest In Peace Jackie. <3
