    Where is Mile Marker 75?
    And you must have information about the crash by now?

      My atlas says that MM75 corresponds to the exit for the southern entrance to Valley of Fire. Strange about the lack of info. I would guess the minivan driver would have been fatally injured, based on the photo.

        There is an updated report now that says that a 3-year-old child was killed and 3 other children injured. An 11-year-old boy is in bad condition in the hospital. Now I want to know who this family is who was driving north towards our area. And who the irresponsible truck driver was who caused this mayhem with his extremely stupid move.

    Typical article that never gives an update or followup.
