Is there ever an excuse for rear-ending another vehicle?
Someone posted on fb that there was a 25 car pile-up in Waukee. I did some checking, looks like there is bad winter weather there. Are people just not taking that into consideration when they drive? How does that happen?
A few years back my husband and I were on an interstate outside of KC. Suddenly there was a very dense fog. You couldn’t see 50 feet in front of you. My husband didn’t even slow down. I was SO nervous. I said, “Aren’t you afraid of something suddenly looming up in the road ahead and you’re going too fast to stop…”
He said, “Nothing’s going to be in the road ahead!”
Not 30 seconds later there were flashing warning signs that had been set out, so everyone finally slowed down…and there was a 50 car pile up in the opposite lane across the median.
How do things like that even happen?
