Don't know what happened and don't want to presume, but people fly on that road like they're running moonshine. Clocked em at 90 plus before. Folks gotta be careful on these roads. Never know when Natures Speedbumps will be dead in the road now that the vultures have left. It's especially slippery at the intersections, gravel, dampness, and all. Check out the intersection of Johnson annd Peru Center road. Be careful!


"Just read the register version. Picklesimer was thrown the from vehicle and suffered incapacitating injuries. Picklesimer was not wearing a seat belt".

"Drug impairment is considered to be a factor in the crash, troopers said".
