    The accident was awful, I pray for the deceased, injured and their families.

    This is yet another local bad accident caused by someone who could not stay in their lane
    for whatever reason. Too much driver inattention these days with cell phones glued to most
    everyones face.
    I see a man driving on cumberland trace road recently, looked like he was eating a slice of pizza.
    Also, get your stupid pet off your lap while you drive, another problem that needs to be addressed.

    Why should ANYONE be driving with a dog in their lap? What a dufus! Isn't this illegal??
    If you cause harm to anyone because of a dog in your lap, hopefully you'll be sued and your dog given to
    someone with more brains than you.

    FIRST OFF who cares what the trucker said VICTIM! I was in that mess for 3 hours with a hungry 5 yr old child that was HOT! and dying of thirst! Honestly you people didn't have to sit in a hot car fear of running out of gas! 3 hours is a long time to wait! People need to comment about the accident and not what someone said! Yes it's tragic! awful! They finally opened one lane! as we drove by we were thankful to god that it wasn't our family and prayed for the ones in the accident! I'm not focusing on what one person said yes we were all victims of this heat, and waiting for hours with no food. So please spare me your thoughts you have no idea because you weren't there to begin with you don' t know how I felt or anyone else that was there waiting and waiting also worrying! [sad]

    As a family member of the TRUE victims, we look for news as what happened to our loved ones and after reading Mr Fieldmans “I’m one of the thumb-twirling victims,” comment I dont understand how he claims to be a victim. So sorry for your delay in traffic but how dare you claim to be a victim. Daily News cldnt you be a little more considerate of the victims and their familes to include his inconsiderate/heartless comments?

    How can you defend his choice of words? Did you not read the article? "I’m one of the thumb-twirling victims" he said. I don't blame him for being upset about the situation, but his choice of words was inappropriate. I also don't care if his is a truck driver, taxi driver or tractor driver, he should not have used the word "victim" to describe his inconvenience when two people lay dead. How in the wide world of sports was his comment thoughtful? He obviously THOUGHT of only himself and his inconvenience when commenting on the situation.

    bgresident, Feldman wasn't acting like a victim. Being a truck driver, he knew that I-65 N would be closed until the accisdent scene was cleared.If anything, his actions were thoughtful.

    So Feldman thinks of himself as a "victim" in this tragedy, because he had to sit there for a few hours. No Feldman, there were some victims here but you do not get to be included. The true victims lost something here much more important than an idle afternoon. They lost their lives. What a disrespectful and insensitive choice of words...and very poor editorial discretion in printing it.

    For the sake of future family members that loose their loved ones, please be a little more conciderate. Junior and Betty Olive are my family, and when I read this article I couldnt believe that it was so important to include the comments on how people had to entertain them selves for six hours. With little reguard mentioned to the victoms of the wreck. Just keep in mind that the victoms loved ones may end up reading your articles. My prayers go out to the truck drivers that were involved and to the rest of my family. Thank you.
