    Was leaving a meeting and came onto this accident just outside of Eden Valley. it looked really bad and I was saddened to hear of the death of Miss Deheer. I just don’t understand how you can possibly miss a stop sign on a highway as major as highway 55. I do have done sympathy for the young lady too as she’s going to have to live with the fact that she was involved in an accident where someone lost their life. It’s a lose/lose all around!
