    My thoughts go out to the family.

    I personally did not know the family, however to see such a young family killed in such a tragic event is devastating. It saddens me to see such a young family taken away. Reading the report brought tears to my eyes, and that says a lot, since I never even knew them.

    Just an overall terrible event. I wonder if we could get the Texans organization to memorialize them in some way. This is just an idea, since it seems like they were all big Texan fans.

    May they all Rest in Peace.

    Man, I can't click the extra links. That is just terrible. RIP.

    The first one is a little unclear on the details of the accident, particularly this:

    Dodge Ram is not an SUV. VW Jetta is not an SUV. Any idea what happened?

    The engine was from the Dodge Ram...just shoddy reporting by calling it an SUV.

    The first link in my second post is okay. It has the picture that Senor Stan posted. The second is graphic.

    The driver of the Ram wavered into their lane as he was coming out of an overpass... the rain was coming down real hard then. Couple it with water really dumping as it runs off the bridge above. He simply couldn't see.

    The engine flew out of the Dodge Ram onto the other side of 105 and two other cars hit the engine.

    RIP

    It was a pickup. The one report just screwed it up.

    Just terrible. Man I hate seeing stuff like this...especially when considering they were seemingly run into by a reckless driver.

    Heart breaking, RIP.

    From the looks of the scene perhaps speed was a factor. Either way such a sad situation, thoughts and prayers for them and their families.

    R.I.P. hopefully they are holding each other as we speak, up above. Just tragic.



    Edit: if any of you are in the capacity to help out our Texans family here's the link for donations.

    Saw it on my FB wall and it tore my heart out. Heard about it a few hours after it happened up near my part of town. My heart goes out to the family.

    Truly heartbreaking story. Tragic beyond comprehension. Very sobering reminder of our mortality. :(

    A tragedy beyond all comprehension. What a beautiful family.

    I just made a small donation to the funeral fund. I wish I could have done more. But after just getting some expensive dental and car work done, I'm really tapped out but if we all pool together, we can make a difference.

    So I challenge all of you to donate to the fund. Even $5.00 to help their loved ones bury this family.

    Living life is like dancing on the head of a pin. While you are balanced on the pin, you don't realize how easy it is for fall off and it can happen in an instant. Life is so precious. Hug your loved ones tonight just a little bit harder.

    Prayers and RIP to all involved.
