Scouts OK in Fiery Crash in Florida

Recommended Posts

Seven scouts and four adults were traveling home from a camping trip when they were involved in an accident with an 18-wheeler. The scouts' vehicles were completely engulfed in flames, but fortunately, all escaped serious injury.

Glad they are ok.  Florida freeways have always scared me.  Too fast and too much traffic.  And, that's from someone who never worried about driving in NY, CA or Boston.

I am in Central Florida Council, and we were discussing this at Cub Scout Day Camp on Monday.  I have been here for 30 years, and amazed at how badly people drive.  Speed limits are non existent; I use my cruise control on the interstate, and at 70 mph I get passed like I am standing still.  Red lights and stop signs are mere suggestions.  We had an ASM pulling the troop trailer on the way to summer camp who had to go off of the road to avoid one of our less than stellar Fla. drivers a few weeks back.

Looking at the pictures of the scout vehicles, it is amazing anyone survived at all.
