  1. 21st century and we havent figured out how to deal with this?
    how about shutting down the highways during bad weather, if you cannot salt them and add gravel?

  2. The Mayor had absolutely NO suggestions for the folks wanting to help. Thoughts and prayers don’t do shit when lives are lost! How about creating a fund where the money will be disseminated across the victims families evenly… and that includes the injured. This “mayor” of bad and no ideas is ridiculous and should be recalled

  3. Here in Australia this is something we don't see and after watching this I'm left chilled. My heart goes out to the family and friends that have lost loved ones and I pray God brings them peace. I also want to wish thos injured a speedy recovery and God's blessings.

  4. First of all, I’m from one of the northern states, I know that state are not fully prepared for winter weather, if you know the danger and you see clearly the roads were not prepare for that why are you driving fast?????, with one inch of snow on a freeway we drive 10 to 20 mph. Second the truck drivers, they know the responsibility and the danger of driving those heavy ass trucks, they see the danger and they know it’s hard for them to stop on time those trucks, why the fork are you driving fast on winter weather. And last this go to the state, why you guys don’t fix your freeway, I usually travel a lot and what I had seen in New Jersey interstate side they divide the freeway on 4 parts, 2 for only cars and 2 for only trucks.

  5. 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾FOR THE FAMILIES 🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾🙏🏾

  6. This accident was unavoidable, people drive fast no matter what. Nothing's going to change as long as cars are operated by humans.

  7. i liked the personalized, humanistic, warm wholesome nature of the things they said, here in seattle they could not pull that off with scripting and voice coaches, it would be cold, bland, and depressing blank stare gobbledegook.
    anyway, that looks like a funnel of death with the median guides, you really need more lanes and shoulders on both sides. Also, wildlife won't survive those high cement medians, i saw a 3 beaver family wiped out in centralia
    we've the same kind of drivers in seattle, hurry to go nowhere and at any price. with job migration, we prolly have some of yours, and you have some of ours.


  9. The city of Ft Worth/Texas DOT are liable because they are charged with highway safety. The road should have been salted or sanded. They should not have left that long stretch of highway icy and with no warning lights. I hope everyone involved is reimbursed for damages, if you lost someone there is no relief available.

  10. Like I said state of TX fault they should’ve did there jobs by laying down the Chemical so the road won’t ice up this happend in Atlanta GA 5 year ago

  11. Speeding, tailgating, frequent lane changes in slippery roads are the perfect recipe for disaster. I've witnessed the three of them play out at the same resulting in multiple deaths. While accidents are part of life, much of them are avoidable if we give priority to safety over "saving" a few useless minutes on the road.

  12. I think all Southern State including Florida should make preparation for these type of weather condition to avoid this from ever happening again.

  13. I praise all the first responders involved in the rescue effort. This could had been prevented by not driving fast on icy roads. I hope people can learn from this tragedy.

  14. This is terrible because it could of been prevented those in charge could of sent salt trucks early so roads would of been clear n safely salted anything to save money instead of lives

  15. Unfortunately it doesn’t matter what you try to educate drivers….until a tragedy happens to them or someone they care about. I’m sorry for everyone affected by this
