  1. Well apparently parts of this article are not correct. The crash did not happen anywhere near Hahn rd and Adam’s street. This crash happened on hwy 24 in between south ramah dam road and blasingame road just a few miles west of the town of ramah.

  2. Involving one car? you know if it were one of us we would be charged with careless driving….just sayin.
