  1. This person in the SUV almost hit my parents head on driving down the wrong side of the divided highway…and also my brother in the vehicle directly behind my parents. They had to veer into the ditch. This was right by the morinville ball diamonds. So they were on the wrong side of the divided highway from where it starts before morinville until the accident! . Lucky this person did not kill someone! Unbelievable!

  2. This brings back horrible memories of the night my best friends life was taken by someone who selfishly chose to drink and drive. The lives of those who knew her are forever altered a decade later. I beg of you, if you are planning on drinking, plan a route home that doesn’t involve you driving. If you know someone has been drinking, remove the choice for them or report it PLEASE! I pray that all those involved are safe and that if alcohol was a factor, I pray the driver of the suv gets some help dealing with addictions.

  3. I am the driver of the car that was struck headon . my 70 year old mother was in my passenger seat. We are both alive and beyond gratful to the EMT,s, FIRE DEPT, R.C.M.P and even the pilot that came for STARS. But I”m so grateful to my comminuity. So many stopped to help. I wish i knew each one of you. Thank you from my mom amd I and may god bless eavh one of you.
