    We really need this road (380) to be four lane. Too many people die because of the hills, so while passing cars they dont see the on coming cars.

    I don’t see why a four lane hasen’t been done a long time ago. This is a heavey traveled highway, tons of people always going to Lubbock and others coming this way to Ruidoso. We need to make it safer.

    This was my Dad who died in this accident. I would like to express my gratitude to all those who stopped and tried to resuscitate him, and those who stood over him and prayed. I have lost my best friend and biggest fan, but he now rejoins my Mom who passed away May 9th. Please pray for the full recovery of passenger of the eastbound car, and for their loved ones. – Daniel J Rymarz

    Daniel, I want to express my condolences to you and your family. My friend and I were on our way home from Ruidoso to Bedford, Texas. We are both Respiratory Therapists and assisted a Nurse and her husband in performing CPR. I only wish there was more we could have done. May God Bless you and your loved ones in this time of tragedy. Randy A.
