    As usual, the rubberneckers make things worse.

    Wow, I think we went all last week without a major catastrophe on I-81. Time to get back to normal. Time to put a guard rail in that grass strip.

    It is always unfortunate to see stories like this and I also think it may be time to put up a rail. Great job to the police for arriving on the scene so quickly though.
