    Without knowing details here, sometimes you have to wonder about car drivers that can't seem to avoid crashing into slow-moving buggies. I mean, if you can't manage to make maneuvers and control your car for a slow buggy, what other things would you hit? The flagman? The school bus? The bicyclist? The trash truck? The fire police directing traffic away from a wreck ahead? A kid on a bicycle? Your elderly mom crossing to get the mail?

    Was the car that hit the buggy a blue one? My daughter was driving that stretch of road last night- at that time and said a blue car sped past them in he break down lane. She told her husband he is going to hurt someone. Minuteslater they came over a hill and saw the debris everywhere. Shecalled me hysterically, saying that a buggy was hit. She lives in that area so this hits hard. If it was the same car, I hope some charges are filed because he was driving illegally in the breakdown lane and speeding.Who does that on that strip of highway!!
