Wreck News

Looks like we've got a big one in Decatur and the "JP has been called." Never a good sign. Anyone know anything? Edit: Might have been someone pulling out of McMaster New Holland to go northbound on 287. But that's uncomfirmed.

-Just about the same spot where the teenager died.
-An 18 wheeler pretty much ran over a pickup truck.
-It was hard to tell that it was actually a pick up truck under there.
-Did not look good at all.

The person in the truck died; haven't heard the name.

2:00, You are correct, that is how rumors get started..

Of course, that might be why he put unconfirmed there....I'm betting that little word would lead other people to understand that BG didn't know for a fact.

Hoping them cows are OK. Looks like the guy in the pickup truck didn't know how to look for oncoming traffic before entering a major hwy.

Oh shut up, 2:33. Give it a rest! Doctors Hospital would be scary, not WRHS.

2:33, Doctors Hospital is a great place. Have been there and seen it first hand. I won't slam on WRHS, but stuff a sock in your pie hole about Doctors.

Doctor's Hospital ER leaves WRHS ER in the dust! I would go sit at the Decatur Livestock sale barn and wait on the vet to check me out while doing his once a week checking on all the stock before I would sit in WRHS ER. No comparison.

the guys name is on th e messenger web site. he was from decatur

of course doctors hospital is faster......because noone is there or would even want to go there. that place is in financial ruin and it will not ever be here in 2 years

Traffic heading northbound was backed up for miles as northbound 287 was shut down and then a little later, just one lane slowly getting by.

4:34 you get to spin the wheel again and buy a clue. The reality is that Doctors Hospital is a brand new spanking health care facility with a great deal of state of the art equipment. It aint getting converted to a bowling alley or a shoe store and it won't be closed either. One way or another it will continue to exist, and if not in its current configuration, then re-configured as a for profit facility making moeny for HCA or some other huge concern, instead of being the commuity-based asset it was designed to be.

Of course it won't be a bowling alley; no one said it would. But it won't be the physician-run community hospital, either. It'll either be bought by another non-profit or be run by one of the for-profit outfits who slash staff and cut corners in care. As it is, it can't make a profit, so something's on the horizon. It can't last as is.

"...spanking health care facility"?

Sounds kinda kinky to me.

I'm just sayin.

Interesting how our blog owner can use tragedy to get all of us to render a post on his blog.

Is this really so good Barry?

Rather sordid isn't it?

And I've known this man since he was a wild teen. And believe me, he can shove an air hockey puck through a window.

Yep, tis true!

Ya gotta move WAY out of the county of your youth to get away from it.

While everyone is making jokes....Let's not forget that the victim was someone's son, Dad, brother etc.
