    I know for a fact this is a bad place for cars coming onto the highway without stopping. I was almost hit by a car coming off of Sand Road as I was traveling south on Highway 12. The car never slowed down as he entered the highway. I ran off the road to avoid being slammed in the side. Hope all involved in this accident will be ok. Prayers going out to them.

    Sending prayers to all who were involved. My daughter is in the same class as the little boy who was taken to Jackson. We are praying for a speedy recovery for him
