Prayers go out to Mr. Goodwin's family, but THIS is a clear indication for all to stay alert on the roads. Your perfect driving may not prevent being hit head on by someone having medical issues behind the wheel.

I can't remember about this particular story, but we don't always get information from the police on the same day of an accident. We also have a very small staff, so sometimes things are not immediately posted if we're working on other stories.
