    I can't help but be concerned about the children that have to drive to school because of no busses. Wait untill the Levy is passed and you will see buses again. Just another bribe. Warren wouldn't have trouble with passing levys if they spent the money where it was spposto go. but I see from your comments that you all must support them for taking the busses off the road. More room for more cars.

    Can anyone provide an update on this story? I also had an accident on that road and want to make sure MMH is doing all they should be medically. They weren't for me and I try to make sure I return the favor as one did for me and family.

    If Warrens school board would work with the community instead of against it, they wouldn't get blamed for everything!

    In response to the question of Dunham being at scene. I would hope that if you or your family member were in an accident and a member of a department that doesn't operate in that area is driving by and no one has responded yet that they would stop to give any assistance they could. Don't be so nasty!! In these situations people are greatful for the help they receive!!

    I travel 550 several times per week. When I was going to Barlow yesterday morning I saw the area that this wreck happened in. I can't tell you how many times a deer has jumped out in front of me in that very spot. So please people if you don't have something nice to say...or something that makes sense..please refrain from commenting. Prayers to this fellow and his family. I hope he gets well soon.

    I am a family member, and this was NOT a student driving to school and had NOTHING to do with Warren Schools. It WAS NOT raining yet at the time of the accident, so nor was it weather related. If you have no idea what happened, it would probably be best not to comment.

    Why does it matter the cause of the accident? I think the important fact is that there was lives involved and everyone is ok.

    The driver may have had a stroke, they are completing an MRI on the victim now. This had NOTHING to do with the WLSD. Nice try Marian. Get your facts straight before commenting please.

    What was the cause of the accident? Who was at fault? How many accidents have been reported on this stretch of road, over the past years? Is this stretch of 550 a particular problem in this area?
