Glad everyone is ok but bet the silver one was on the wrong side of the road and driving recklessly

Brock Wood

I live on Joe Bald....sometimes these drivers think it's the Indy 500...always hear tires squalling when they hit the curve by Hunter's Glen!!!! Glad everyone was ok!!

Hats off to the first responders!! With out all of you, it could have been a lot worse. Thanks for doing a job, that most people can't do. Thank you!!

So grateful for the first responders & Southern Stone County Fire Protection. My complaint is we can not get the sheriff to cooperate and get more officers to patrol Joe Bald - James River. If I had a dollar for each time a car or motorcycle has passed on some of the curves on this road - I could go out for the best steak in Stone County.

Wow...how sad

Albert Lockhart

Glad that everyone walked away..
