Texting while driving, speeding, or both? Single car accident, on a relatively straight stretch of road, hmmmm.

Or a heart attack, stroke or diabetic coma.

I was there just after it happened and KP Fire Dept was onsite. Where do they get this "just north of Indian Head Road " location from? It was just south of Pulaski Road and the car was in the wooded section of the parkway median. It was just prior to rush hour (@ 4:45pm).

No matter what caused the accident, there should be guard rails along both sides of all our highways to keep vehicles going 60mph from going into the trees. We pay tons of taxes and our roads should be safer. I for one am tired of seeing crosses nailed to trees along the wooded areas of our parkways. E-mail your local leaders and the DOT with your complaints.

Ignoring this particular crash, the Sag/.Sunken Meadow seems mostly abandoned by the state getting extremely little attention for repair or safety improvements. The one big change over the years was when they added working lights. In the meantime, it needs lots of work, including a complete resurfacing end to end. Also, on the south end, when you split left to go to the Southern east bound, they need to rebuild it to be a right merge to the Southern instead of a left; what they have now is extremely dangerous.
