Main Road Messes
August 5, 2012 7:54am CST
So yesterday we were travelling around to some garage sale places and this main road we go on alot had two problems on it. Up the road a ways this lady lost control of her two small dogs and they were in the road holding up traffic. There were some nice people there who stopped rather than colliding with them head on and killing them, thankfully. One guy got out of the truck in back alittle further which prompted the lady in front of him to get out too and they were both in the road then trying to coax them out of the wa of the cars. Scary, cause we were trying to not hit them too. They finally got them to her, safely thank goodness. Would you have stopped and got out of the car or truck to help her too? I was glad some people did that. I hate to see any animals hit by a car. Then there was a bad accident don the same road where the van got totally smashed in in the front hitting a pole by the cemetary there again. The flat beds were already there and I didn't see any people standing around that belonged to the van, maybe they went via an ambulance to the hospital already. But that cemetary is a bad place for accidents it seems. My mom kids around and says people are in too much of a hurry to get in the cemetary. Do you have a main street like this in your twon and are there alot of mishaps on it similar to this at times? One time the gas station attendant on the road there said he saw a deer run across that road and up into the hills, which is pretty darn rare too. That must have stopped traffic too at the time.

I hate to see animals get hit too. Especially when it could be prevented. If i were one of the ones who stopped i would advise this lady to be sure and have these animals leashed from now on. I live in a capitol city. Where I live now used to be outside the city limits but not so now. Its a busy street and conjested late in the afternoon most days.

I hope the lady doesn't do this on a regular basis, she had her car out slightly too almost as if she just came home or was going out, not sure which. Perhaps they were both in the car with her and she let them go loose after she got back in the driveway "accidentally".

Yes she is, she wasn't even in the road trying to get them, but she was still minding whatever it was at the car! I think the people in the road driving were doing more than she was in trying to get them back to her. Crazy. They should have a leash on them of some sort in the car too, I agree. You never know what could happen, in any situation. I agree celtic and dragon!
