Not us. We're not headed over there for 2 weeks yet. Sure like to hear more details. That's freaky. Hope everybody is going to be ok.

Oh my, I do see a white Dodge TV and an older model Montana. Prayers to all involved.

05 or earlier Montana by the blue graphics. All the comments are second guessing and have not a clue but it would appear reasonable that Montana driver was running to fast .As said in the aviation industry on a accident " he ran out of information and altitude simultaneously". It appears that the Montana driver ran out of road and information simultaneously.

We will likely never know exactly how this accident happened and I would not want to speculate on it's cause, I hope the comments offered to the article are correct and no one was seriously injured.

It appears to me looking at the rear axles and the front wheels which appear to have only 6 studs that this was a 1500 Dodge, since both the 2500 and the 3500 have 8 stud wheels. Might be a case of too much RV for the TV.

I agree with Irlpguy, in addition, it would not have made a difference if the driver had a public passenger license, a CDL license or a pilots license.

I thought that was an odd statement. Kinda like, "I was standing up, then all of a sudden, I fell over"?
