  • for one reason he wasn't towing to or from the valley, he was helping a friend who broke down get back to his home town and another reason it shouldn't matter where he was from it was a terrible accident where someone died and alot of people were injured...no one in there right mind especially this person would be ok with it...apparently there is a problem in this area because people are concerned about this exact spot as a hazard. Maybe authorities should take note and do something to prevent other deaths and injuries...i pray for the families and people who were injured and the lady that passed...its just a horrible tragedy...before anyone lays blame they should know all the facts about everything.

  • i think if that intersection in a major bad one the it dont matter if you are towing any kind of vehicle. so the state needs to do something about it before there are anyother thing happen to someone else. sorry that this accident has happen and my prayers are out for the family. also for the people that got hurt.

  • A guy from LA runs a stop sign, hit by a bus and kills a passenger. Now, how does this thread become a:

    lets pass a law of no more towing cars to the valley if they want to take them to the valley or mexico have them drive them there

    As for the buses most of them drive like a bunch of idiots. Way to fast and moving in and out of traffic as well. You would never think these drivers gave a hoot that they were carrying a bus load of passengers

    Time for the State to regulate the vehicles being towed to the Valley

    I wonder why?

  • Does this include Mission Valley? This does not sound like a easy law to enforce. Not sure towing is the problem but unsafe driving is the issue.

    ^^^This may be the case in MOST scenarios but if you have ever driven by where they are talking there is a hill coming up next to Fleming prairie so when the pick-up driver pulled out in front of them the driver of the bus would not have had enough time to correct thus resulting in this accident...

    Maybe instead of banning towing vehicles, require that they only tow during daylight hours, use more hazard lights and create stiffer penalties for those who can't follow the law.

  • "Time for the State to regulate the vehicles being towed to the Valley"
    .
    Does this mean we regulate LA drivers too?

  • I travel this highway all the time and see vehicles being towed all the time. Sometimes you see a driver towing two or three others behind it. The large majority are going way to fast or way to slow. The fast ones are swaying all over the road wiping in and out of the fast lane and the slow ones are poking along 45mph or less waving traffic around them. Both accidents waiting to happen.

  • This tells me the pickup driver did not even stop, yield or look to see if the bus was coming, prior getting into US 77...
    It happened so fast," said passenger Larry Sanchez
    The crash occurred about 9 p.m. as the pickup driver was turning north onto U.S. 77 from Fleming Prairie Road and reportedly did not see the bus, Bryant said

  • This is a damn shame. People want to raise speed limit?
