The scene is very tragical

The scene is very tragical for the sheriff's deputy. Personally, I am very much careful when I am on the road driving my car specially when my family is with me riding as my passenger. I really secure to check everything because accidents are inevitable and we can never tell about it. Last month, I turn for my installment loan for my car check and I really take a full responsibility for this since I don't want to loose them.
