79 Car Pile-Up in Ohio - January 21, 2013, 08:12 PM


12-year-old girl killed in 86-vehicle crash on I-275

RIP to the little girl.

Bad drivers all around. With modern tires, ABS, DSC, and T/C there is no goddamn reason why there should be a 79 car pile-up. Drivers not adjusting their speed and distance to match the change in road conditions and not driving defensively in inclimate weather.

Sidenote: Why can't people learn to hold their phone HORIZONTALLY not vertically so the video isn't cut-off and cropped on the sides.

I'm not surprised. I drove through OH on my way to VA as the blizzard of '96 was cranking up and traffic was flowing at a solid 70 mph with a 3" layer of snow over a solid 1" layer of ice on the road. It was kinda freaky. All it would have taken was one person screwing up to create the kind of pileup in the vid.

I remember the Blizzard of 96.
No goddamn joke. I had to work in it. RPS - preload, 1am on an open dock.

I used to think like you until I got in a 50+ car pile up in Connecticut with no snow on the ground. I was introduced to black ice. Slammed my car to the concrete barriers on the left hand side to slow it down and slid for approximately 1/4 mile while scraping against the wall. Luckily ended up stopping the car without hitting anyone but got rear ended twice lol. There is nothing you can do when you hit black ice even if you're going 25 and you have a mile lead. It's like being on zero gravity.

Man, how do insurance companies determine all the faults in something like that?

I would like to know this too. Does everyone go after everyone else, or do the insurance companies agree that it would be too difficult to determine who hit whom, when, or who was pushed into a car and deny all claims file against and wil only cover their insured.

Nearly always if you hit something that is slow or stationary in the roadway, it is your fault. If conditions are dry and sunny, then follow the 2-second rule. If otherwise, add more distance between you and what's ahead by slowing down. It's really very simple, but obviously people cannot be bothered with being careful.

Being out here for a few storms, I'm surprised this doesn't happen more often. The land is so flat when winds come down they're low and fast. I've felt my entire car lift up in wind coming perpendicular to the interstate.

Seems like ever windstorm I end up weaving through overturned trailers on my way to work, and that's without snow or rain. You add that and jeesh. Not to mention that 'modern' tech is almost nonexistant- except for the suburb I'm in where people have late model imports, you would think you were in a time machine to 1995 in an isolationist America.


Whenever a post needs posting, I appear, then I'm gone.
