Commentary, sarcasm and snide remarks from a Florida resident of over thirty years. Being a glutton for punishment is a requirement for residency here. Who am I? I've been called a moonbat by Michelle Malkin, a Right Wing Nut by Daily Kos, and middle of the road by Florida blog State of Sunshine. Tell me what you think.

Where's the dramamine? Chapter Twenty Six

From the Tampa Tribune-

Three children and two adults were transported to hospitals this morning after the driver of a Mustang ran a stop sign and crashed into a van carrying five people in Polk County.

The children, ages 3 to 7 years old, suffered life-threatening injuries and were transported by Bay Flight, according to a Polk County Fire Rescue spokeswoman.

A 38-year-old woman and another adult, unidentified, were transported with less serious injuries, according to Fire Rescue and the Florida Highway Patrol.

The Mazda van, driven by Richard Wheeler, 40, of Lakeland, was carrying Camille Wheeler, 38; Katherine Wheeler, 7; Hope Wheeler, 5; and Regan Wheeler, 3, was traveling southbound on County Road 35A about 8:50 a.m.

A Mustang driven by 40-year-old Joseph Dziadon, also of Lakeland, was northbound on Old Kathleen Road at the same time, passing other vehicles, the patrol report says.

The Mazda ran the stop sign at the intersection of CR 35A and Old Kathleen Road, hitting the right rear passenger side of the van, which overturned, according to highway patrol.
The car that causes the accident goes from being a Mustang to a Mazda in less than 175 words. Nice work Tampa Tribune, does anyone proofread before publishing a story?

On a serious note- Say a prayer for the Wheeler family.
