Can you believe it’s been a year since a fatal accident occurred in neighboring Georgia?  Do you remember when a 3-year old boy was killed when a semi-truck crashed into the minivan his family was riding in?  The minivan was slowing down due to heavy traffic when the impact took place.  The vehicles were pushed off the road, knocking down two trees.  Witnesses said that the big-rig was doing about 70 mph and never braked to try and stop.

The Pennsylvania family was on their way to Florida for a vacation when the fatal accident took place.  The driver of the minivan was the 38-year old mother; she was in critical condition.  The dad and two other children suffered injuries but none were life-threatening.
