    How about an update on this accident. I can’t seem to find any reports.

    I can tell by your comment that you do not know this area. There indeed is a flat portion but there is an incline on a bridge on a curve, a usually busy ramp and a area where two lanes go to three and then to two again. These are all elements that create changeable conditions that interrupt the flow of traffic.

    As drivers adjust their speed and change lanes for this combination of factors you get varying results.

    When the heck ISN’T there an accident in Newtown on I-84???!!! This area of the highway is absolutely flat, for the life of me I can never understand how so many accidents can happen in this single spot!
