    in all the years ive lived in Shelton so many have died on that stretch of highway…when will something be done about it???maybe its time for a freeway facelift and either put in a divider or add more lanes..idk it just always seems to be a bad part of the road…so sad and tragic…praying hard for the family n loved ones of the woman who passed away…I hope the other gal learns to slow down and realizes how important a life is…understanding that accidents do happen but damn it people please pay more attention to others around you,u are NOT the only ones on the roads!!!
