People really need to learn how to slow down around here and be more careful when driving. I am on the road for about 6 hours a day and every day is a challenge because people just drive all crazy. SO sorry for the family and friends of the victims.

I actually saw the accident happen, and when i later heard that she died i couldn't believe it... i saw the car (it was two cars ahead of me) veer into the opposing lane, no idea why. I've been in shock since.

Such a sad occurrence. We LMT seniors send our condolences to the family. I've seen several deadly accidents over the years further east on Lower Macungie Rd. Automobiles really push the "peddle to the metal" along that stretch of road leading up to the traffic light at Wild Cherry Ln.

I guess I wonder why witnesses didn't stick around.
