This stretch of highway is considered a dangerous area which has numerous fatalities every year. As a result of the accident other motorist who attempted to avoid the collision were involved in the accident. These innocent victims were seriously injured as well and are in critical condition pending treatment. What makes this area dangerous is the high wind conditions, steep grades and often times inattentive drivers.
