I cried when I read your post tonight on “They Said” regarding the van accident last week. Every time one of these incidents happens it brings back a flood of memories from when I was in college and had to attend my first funerals after a van accident killed a couple of the kids that I had grown up with on our wrestling team. Back then the vans didn’t even have seatbelts as standard equipment. Driver training, mandatory seat belt usage, safe vehicles, fatigue, adrenaline, miles on the road…all of these are risk factors. I wish there were easy answers to prevent this from happening again.
