    Where does it say the info came from a police report - - NO WHERE! The report says "Kingston authorities say ". The way I understand, names cannot be given out until next of kin is notified. So that leaves lot that cannot be in the article . Thank you KXII fo rthe updatre - can we get an update on the people in the SUV, please?

    my mother-in-law had a head on with a 16 year old girl whe the young girl swerved in her lane while talking on her cell phone and going extremly fast according to eye witnesses in almost the exact location. We know that curve there right before you get to the bridge. It is extremely dangerous.Both parties wre killed in that accident 3 years ago.

    this is the 1st time someone else has noticed? any police officer would be reprimanded if they submitted a police report with so little info. it makes me wonder how a professional reporter could justify a paycheck.

    Your reporting STINKS! A 4th grade kid could do just as good if not better.
