    Something must be done about these roads. This could have been prevented. The roads are too small, and these roads have been like this all my life. My condolences goes out to her family. I knew Jalica, she was around my age. She was very young, and this could have been prevented. This accident is a wake up call. Large trucks should have their own road because smaller vehicles are at risk when large trucks and smaller vehicle are on the same road. If 2 mirrors are able to touch this means the roads are tooooo small. Many people travel that same road everyday. Don't they realize that people are probably having close accidents everyday on this same road because of the road conditions. This girl lost her life and her children are injured. Those this have to happen in order for the roads to be fixed and the drivers to be protected. May God Bless Everyone! The Smith & Johnson Family of Jonestown and Arkansas! Remember To Keep God In Your Life & Dont Let Anyone tell you different. Love PriceLess

    What an horrific accident and the terror experienced by the victims. My condolences to the family. What happened here? I'm not understanding mirrors collided........is the road too narrowed for 2 (two) trucks or should trucks not travel this road other than small/standard pick -up trucks? Or should mirrors on all trucks exceeding standard specifiications be turned in or prohibited on a small 2 lane hiway? These issues certainly warrant urgent investigation, to include the county making this road a 4 lane hiway, and fining/charging the truck owners for not moving off the road when determined the road was too narrow for both trucks due to the mirrors. I would imagined that many people have had a close encounter w/death on this hiway (Hiway 1 merging in w/hiway 49 coming in from Moon Lake, also on the Helena bridge........too narrow.....should be 4 lanes ). There should be a traffic light, as well as the entire hiway lanes increased
