    I was heading to Indianola Walmart, heading South, when I came upon this Terrible Accident. It had just happened. There were car parts all across both sides of the Hwy heading north & south. I won’t say no more .. On the way back? Heading North? The Police were diverting ALL to take Hwy 92W to R63. Then I took G24 over to Hwy 65/69 to get Back home. Waiting for the Full Story ! I Didn’t even See the 2nd Vehicle involved. Prayers to all involved.

      The 2 cars had t have been going northbound. There is no way they were coming into Indianola. They were leaving Indianola. Not hard to figure this one out. My class figured this one out.

        They Were Heading SOUTH-BOUND. Read the Article. Other News channels said the same. Also? That new light they just put there? The Speed limit coming Up to that light is 55mph !! With NO safety Yellow flashing Light warning people and the Speed Limit needs to be changed there. You Cannot even stop when that light changes, going 45 miles per hour. I know. I take that way every Evening to take my son to work and back. I come up on that light and NO WAY can you slow down / Unless you already ARE at 40mph … to stop for that light. I go 40mph thru there. DANGEROUS !!
