Two occupants of the Silverado were transported to the hospital. One died en route to the hospital, and the other died at the hospital on Sunday, according to an update from CSP.

The other two occupants of the Chevrolet died at the scene of the crash.

The driver of the Chevrolet Silverado was 59-year-old Samuel Henry from Liberal, Kansas, according to CSP. The passengers of the Chevrolet were Joshua Henry, 36, from Sterling, Colorado, Messiah Henry, unknown age, and Maki Henry, an 8-year-old boy.

The driver of the Ford F-150 was identified as Jian Zhong, 45, from Aurora, according to CSP. 

The passengers were identified as Cathy Zhong, 45, from Aurora, Myoli Zhong, a 9-year-old girl from Aurora, and Ren Juntan, 53, Centennial, according to CSP.

The driver of the semi-truck was not injured.

Highway 40 was closed for several hours for investigation. The road was back open by Saturday morning, the CSP spokesperson said.

Denver ABC7提供的情况

‘The crash happened on mile marker 437 a little after 4:30 p.m., according to Master Trooper Gary Cutler.

Cutler said the F-150 was going west on the highway when it passed a semi traveling in the same direction. The pickup was in a passing zone and traveling in the eastbound lanes of the highway when it collided head-on with the Silverado going eastbound.’

我在哪儿还看到说F-150当时拖着一条船。

拖船时高估自己的加速度, 低估‘回到本道’需要的时间

这样的话, 平时可以超过Semi所需的‘时间及其和对方来车的距离’就不够了。

从地图上看, US40那一段路面平坦, 双向2车道(每个方向1个车道)
颠三倒四了
拖了船就该老实点跟车

一马平川, 有的地方限速65

四个老中开F-150,拖着船,在超车道上超越半挂车时和坐着四个人的Silverado迎头相撞

限速65, 单向单车道, 中间没有隔离带,这样的道路太可怕。

这老中是不是刹不住车。

CHEYENNE COUNTY, Colo. (KKTV) - An eighth person has died following a devastating crash in eastern Colorado last week.

The crash happened on the afternoon of June 26 on Highway 40 between Kit Carson and Hugo. Seven people died on the day of the crash. State Patrol said the eighth victim died Sunday at a hospital.

Investigators believe the crash happened when a westbound Ford F-150 towing a boat moved into the eastbound lanes to pass a semi and crashed head-on into an oncoming Chevrolet Silverado. The F-150 burst into flames, killing four people inside. Two people inside the Silverado died at the crash scene, and a third occupant died in an ambulance on the way to the hospital.

State Patrol confirmed the eighth victim was in the Silverado at the time of the crash.

The victims were identified by State Patrol Monday:

Ford F-150:
Jian Zhong, 45, Aurora (driver)
Cathy Zhong, 45/, Aurora
Myoli Zhong, 9, Aurora
Ren Juntan, 53, Centennial

Chevy Silverado:
Sammy Henry, 59; Liberal, Kansas
Joshua Henry, 36, Sterling
Messiah Henry, age and hometown unknown
Maki Henry, 8, hometown unknown

The cause of the crash remains under investigation.

俺可没少开这种two lane road

出事多是这种路,俺一上这种路就

1)先看好了右边有没躲闪的地方,

2)即使是阳光灿烂也开大灯让对面占道超车的看到我是迎面过来的

3) 没有把握绝对不超。

这老中的错误在于超车长度估计错误,拖了条船超车长度至少要多一倍。

西行的福特F-150拖了一部boat,正在passing zone,与东行的雪佛兰迎头相撞...

(毛估估150-60MPH),F-150即大火!(基本上F-150判断错误)

事故发生时是在passing zone

既然是设置的超车区域,说明了几点

首先说明这里很长的一段路都是单车道,前车慢会挡住后车

其次就是没有混凝土格挡作为中间分隔。应该是一直都是地上画实线然后到了passing zone 变成了虚线

最后,passing zone一定会设置在视野极好的大直路上,双方能看到对面的情况一清二楚

问题就来了,为什么会对撞死八人。逆行的当然全责,头脑发热,判断失误。但是对面的呢,为什么会撞上来?passing zone不可能视野不好没提前发现。

我看只有两种可能,后者更大些

1 司机走神发呆没看前面

2 ”你小子逆行就乖乖回去,我可不会让你,咱看谁厉害。”

所以在自个儿道上好好开着的该死?

俺开过100mph超车

当时是two lane road不过隔个10 Miles的样子在我方就多出了一条一迈长的passing lane那种,这种设计实在很安全合理。

什么叫defensive driving?

你愿意做不该死却死了的,还是做不该让却让了幸存的?

如果你是对面的车你会如何处理?你还想事后到这里大骂对面那个司机吧

So someone shoots at you and you get killed

It's your fault because you should have known how to protect yourself?

Call me cruel but I love to see you in a situation like this defending yourself.

A piece of advice to you: don't you ever practice your driving style in China here. I could care less about you but others.

这是我的旧帖,当时也就两三秒时间。这又是拖船又是十八轮,除非双方精神集中又有默契,很难不出事。

一次从大学城去AUSTIN, 过一小镇后是一段双向路;每次到这里我都亮起大灯通过.

这时一辆皮卡迅速追上我的CIVIC. 因为一转弯马上就是单行道, 而且经常有警察在附近打伏击, 再看DRIVER象我的乡巴佬校友, 应该熟悉情况, 所以我并没有让他. 结果这楞头青硬是一转弯就超车, 而这时一辆大皮卡迎面而来. 我立刻上SHOULDER让他回到黄线右边. 虚惊过后, 这小子抬头对后视镜并举手张开五指致谢; 我也张右五指答谢.

 

周老大
加一个细节。我是一听到左边有噪声马上上路肩,看都没看他是否超车。
老金工
关键时刻冲上shoulder,赞!大雪路滑,避免撞车刹不住上shoulder也是一招。

还有一种可能

有些驾驶品性非常不好,看到有人要超过他,他就加速不让超过。

If some one shot at you

You should run away as quickly as you can.  You don’t step forward to prove you have a bigger ball.

一般平路,十八轮都跑的不慢,这些司机天天路上跑,只有上坡时候慢下来;如果是单行车道没有必要超
周老大
那是十八轮,加速慢,干不了这种事。他要是精神集中也许可以往边上挪一点;挪多了也怕翻车。
周老大
谢点赞!

再加个细节,对过的车跟没事儿一样呼啸而过;显然毫无反应。

我觉得:对面的Silverado 车老司机也沒有想到F-150后面拖着船,导致他判断错误:以为F-150皮卡能顺利超车成功,让出

Lane 来。

F一150拖着船不仅导致自己性能降低,而且车身加长,导致让出lane 的时间加长一倍以上(与18辆车头并行时算起)这导致对面车在不知道其长度的情况下直接误判!结果:让过了车身,撞上船。

 

F150拖船是否要求挂拖船标志?比如红色什么的呢?

我从Home Depot 买几根长长的板,小二都给找个红布条挂上

高速上路肩不容易吧,许多有锯齿的
周老大
大车看不到司机。小车打闪的较少,一般是举手。
周老大
哈哈,谢谢。
周老大
有这可能。也可能双方躲闪不默契。
周老大
德州路肩很少有锯齿,至少二十年前是这样。

我记起一次在这种对开州道上

远方有车亮着头灯在我这道上冲着我开过来,越来越近,我就开始减速了。

我就没见过拖家带口再拉一条船还敢超车的,超的还是长semi,不得至少要个一迈才能超过去?

周老大
减速,警告,准备闪躲是正招。至于十八轮,能不超就不超。

分析有道理。
