220 is a speedway. I try to avoid 220 because not only are people driving 70+ mph but they also ride your bumper.

Prayers for all involved.

Saw this in the CL just a little earlier. Death and serious injuries are always sad, even tragic, to say the least and I'm very sorry for the families involved.

That said, I agree with 9:48. If you've driven on I-220 lately, you know that there is a segment of the population that deems that stretch as something between the Autobahn and demolition derby. People drive like they are certifiably crazy on that road on a routine basis. About the only time I have to drive it these days is when I visit my parents' graves at Lakewood. I actually feel safer driving all the way on Capitol than taking the 220 route.

An now with THAT said, what the heck has happened to JPD traffic details? I can't remember the last time I saw the formerly regular speed traps on I-55 at Northside or Briarwood, and the public knows it because people ZOOM past me while I'm already doing 65-70 in a 60 zone every morning and afternoon. There are also S curves on Manhattan and on Culley drive (between State and the frontage road) where JPD used to semi-regularly have traffic stops where they caught numerous people with expired/suspended licenses, no insurance, and/or expired tags, but almost always also someone who had an outstanding warrant who had evaded LEOs to that point. I haven't seen any of those stops since we got our new mayor or temporary police chief.

Worse than the speed is the plethora of stalled/broken down/abandoned vehicles left on the side of the road. I travel 220 to and from work and not a day goes by that at least one car is on the side of the road, barely pulled off, setting empty. Most days it's four or more, and some of these cars will stay there for days.

Thanks be to EZ Credit lots giving irresponsible drivers access to the road so they can just dump their junker when it breaks, then have a new one in less than a week.

Just saw where the dead female was identified, 18 year old Carniqua Bogan of Jackson. Damn. Just a kid, basically. Even more tragic. Apparently no Facebook page, which is good because it would probably only lead to inappropriate comments.

Before reading the article, my assumption was that it involved one of those morons driving their crotch rockets 100 mph on I 55. They are a danger to themselves as well as others. So sorry for this. Probably entirely preventable.

Takes a someone weird person to determine the name of the deceased and immediately go searching for a Facebook page. And he thinks COMMENTS would be inappropriate?

The personal life and Facebook page of the young woman are none of your damned business!

He's just a troll.

Must be a gov't worker... he posts on here all day, every day. He & 2 or 3 other trolls with their 'special moniker' posts 90 percent of the crap.

Internet troll I am not.
Government employee, oh heaven forbid, no no!.

Dang. People are driving 70 mph on 220? And, that's dangerous? Last time I checked, that was the speed limit, 10:41. Maybe people are riding your bumper because you are driving significantly below the limit. Try taking the side roads if 70 mph is too fast for you.

Louie Louie: You carefully denied all points other than being a troll. No need to bother with THAT denial. Your post was pure bullshit trash, an insult to the deceased young woman and to the rest of us.

Internet troll I am not
Is not denial of being internet troll?
Basic definition must be misunderstood.

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.
