I have seen alot of comments on the WRAL site about who is to blame for this wreck.  This is certainly a tragedy and possibly one that could have been avoided.  Certainly, if someone put the cable across a road without marking the cable, that could be the basis for liability.  There are numerous facts that would be important to sorting this out but, either way, a young life was lost.
