  1. I wonder if the crash was as a result of distracted driving looking at the giant billboard. Same thing will happen if they put this on Route 17.

    1. Nope. Any such accident in Richwood would be accomplished with more panache.

      After all, it is Richwood!

  2. I think this indicates the need for cars to be designed to be driven on their sides so that they become upright in the normal run of the mill accident…………………………………………
