    Heard about this on FB this morning. I remember passing by this place many times, dating back to the 50's. Long before Florida's Turnpike was built very close to Yeehaw, my dad drove us up to Ohio using US 441 from south Florida almost every summer. There use to be a gas station across the street from there and our 1950 Plymouth broke down at that intersection.https://www.wptv.com/news/state/tra...zq2TQzq49pAH_oMFtSTcq6G-K1zyH74DFaHhLPyiLUUxM

    From the aricle...

    Cawley told WPTV, "When I got to that corner I couldn't see the ground, I couldn't see the lines or anything. It was too dark. I normally never travel at night but I wanted to get close to Jacksonville and I was trying to put myself into a good position."

    Ummmmmmm....When you can't SEE, SLOW DOWN!!!
