I passed by at the time and saw a white sheet covering what I thought was a body. Haven't heard anything in the news anywhere.

I too passed the scene of the accident and saw two white sheets covering what appeared to be bodies. Speaking with an employee of a gas station on Route 158 Saturday morning it seems as though people were attempting to cross the highway and were struck by traffic. I too have been trying to find a story on it to no avail.

I witnessed the accident. It was a horrific scene. I was in Wings and as I stepped out I saw the two women trying to beat traffic across that dangerous roadway and a white blazer plowed into the two of them. The older woman was dead instantly, from what they said, and the younger woman had a pulse for a short period of time, then passed. The worst part of it all was seeing the two women's family see and witness the whole thing; seeing them go up to the one woman, who was their mother, saying "mom you are going to be alright, mom hold on". God bless their family in this time of loss. God be with the two women who were hit. It was Friday night, probably their last night of vacation. My heart goes out to the family of the two. I really doubt their will be any information in the news, as they will want to protect the privacy of the family.

What freaks me out even more is that I remember a family leaving Wings about 30 seconds before I did and it may have been the family who crossed the road. I have a strong feeling it was because I recognized some of the family members at the scene. Imagine, going to a store to buy some souvineirs on your last day of a wonderful trip and next such a tragic event takes place.

May god be with the two who passed and also with the family who lost.

I heard it was the wife and mother of a man who was there vacationing with them and their children. What I am trying to find out is if the person who hit them was drunk?

We also came upon the accident while walking our dogs. No the drivers were not drunk, no they were not speeding, no they were not teenagers. It appears to just be a tragic accident where the pedestrians probably did not realize how close they were to the traffic. It was already very dark when the accident happend. We should send our prayers not only to the family of those that lost their lives, but also to the driver of the vehicle who must now live with this tragedy. Let's also remember those who witnessed this terrible scene.

We do need to send our prayers to the people who were driving the vehicle involved. They were an older couple who just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. I couldnt imagine the pain they too must be suffering right now. Its not their fault. The victims who died didnt use their heads while crossing such a dangerous highway. I remember seeing the older couple, who were driving the white blazer that hit the two women, sitting on the back of their vehicle in total shock. I wanted to walk over to them to comfort them, but I was in shock after witnessing the horrific act. What do you say to someone who has been involved in such an accident?

The whole situation was unfortunate. I believe I witnessed this accident for a reason. I am the type of person who is very brave. I will surely think twice before making a decision, as I now value my life more than ever.

God bless all the victims of that tragedy which took place on September 22nd.

Excuse me...The people walking "were not using their heads?!" That's pretty callous. but you seem to have compassion for the older people who ran them over. Something doesn't jive here. Let me explain. I worked with BOTH of these women at a local hospital here where we all live. The recount of the story here is....the older couple THOUGHT they were deer crossing the road..and continued on without first stopping. Because they thought it was an animal crossing the road...they keep on going??? Come on now. What does that say about the "elderly couple?" It would have still be a life lost whether animal or human. This is a tragic horrific incident that is affecting not just the family of the slain victims..but an entire hospital they worked for and all the patients they cared for. Have you ever heard of the "ripple effect". This doesn't even BEGIN to describe how this has effected this entire town and surrounding communities. Even if the women DID use poor judgement in crossing the road...does that mean in your estimation that the drivers deserve to be consoled and the family less?? I can't believe what you have written. Let's hope you never experience such a tragic event in YOUR life. I hope others will be more compassionate than you were!

Please forgive me for coming off the way that you assume I did or that I may have. I have obviously written my point in the wrong way and I apologize to everyone for that. To add, I was unaware that the elder couple driving the blazer used such poor judgement not to slow down, even if they assumed it was only animals crossing the highway. I also never said that we should show 'more' compassion towards the drivers than the two women who died. If you read my initial post you would see this. I simply stated that our prayers need to go out to not only the two women, family members, and friends who are now in mourn, but also to 'everyone' who was involved (including the drivers).

I was there, I saw it happen. It was extremely dark there, no lights at all, period! It was an accident.

Again, I am sorry for my stating the victims were not using their heads; I should have written that statement in a different way. To add, I have recently lost a loved one; a close family member, in a very similar way. I know first hand the pain felt after going through such a tragedy. Please dont let your emotions cause you to lash out like you did because my only intention was to show my compassion and pray for everyone involved in this tragedy.

Mother, daughter killed in accident
Tuesday, September 26, 2006
KITTY HAWK — Cheryl R. Yarger, 56, of Osceola Mills and her daughter Kara J. Butler, 27, of Madera were killed in a “horrible accident,” according to Detective Brian Strickland of the Kitty Hawk Police Department.
According to Detective Strickland, Mrs. Yarger and Ms. Butler, who were on vacation, were walking with family members at approximately 8 p.m. on Friday in Kitty Hawk, N.C.
According to eyewitness accounts, Detective Strickland said they were leaving a retail establishment with family members when they attempted to cross the Croatan Highway (US 158), on their way to a parking lot, and were struck by a vehicle.
Detective Strickland said the two had fallen behind a group of family members when they attempted to cross the five-lane highway (two lanes in each direction with one center lane,) and were struck by the vehicle. Detective Strickland said the police are not releasing the name of the driver and his or her passenger at this time other than to say it was a husband and wife from Virginia who were also on vacation.

Here's the story... The family was on their last night of vacation, going to eat at the restaurant where the accident occurred. There was a wait, so they walked across the road to a small shop. On their way back across the road, they looked for any oncoming traffic, and they saw none. "They" consisted of Cheryl, mother; Amy, Daughter and two grandkids, ages 4 and 3; Kara, Daughter and one child age 3; and Clint, son. Kara (27) and Cheryl (56) were bringing up the rear, as Cheryl recently had back surgery, and was in pain the past few days. Amy and Clint got across with the children, luckily, and the last thing they remember seeing is Kara reaching out for Cheryl. The rest was pretty gruesome. Anyway, both were pronounced dead at the scene. The old couple who hit them kept driving, then later turned around and came back. When they learned of the fatalities, they both had to be taken to the hospital via ambulance.
The family is from Houtzdale, in central PA, and surrounding areas, and are very close knit. Cheryl has been a caring, compassionate nurse for over 30 years. She was a home health nurse, whom her patient's absolutely adored - as did her coworkers and all who knew her. She has a husband, Gary, who survives. She is the mother of three grown children - Amy, Kara, and Clint. Amy has two children - Robert and Melena. And Kara - who was also killed - has a husband, Kevin, and a three year old daughter, Kalista. Kara was a dedicated pharmacy technician, a loving mother, and was loved by all who knew her.
Cheryl often spoke lovingly of her children and grandchildren. She talked about how cute her Clinton is, and what good mothers her daughters are/were.
This tragedy has touched an incredible number of lives. Our home health office will never be the same without her, nor will the pharmacy next door without Kara. They have left a hole that cannot be filled.
Please include this family in your prayers, at the hardest time of their lives.

P.S. My location came up wrong the prior message. I am in Houtzdale, PA.
Anyway, I also remember the family telling us yesterday that they didn't remember seeing any headlights, as if the couple didn't have them on.

Anybody know anything about them?

I am deeply saddened by hearing what you have just informed us about the two women. They both sound like two very kind-hearted, gentle people. My heart and prayers go out to the entire family and all of the close friends of the two.

I recall also wondering the same thing but when I looked at the front of the vehicle, both lights were smashed along with the front grill, which I assume were all broken from the impact.

I wanted to give information about the couple that was involved in the accident last Friday. I am close personal friends with them and they are completely devastated by the accident that occurred. They had also been on a week long vacation and were returning from dinner when the accident occurred. Now instead of remembering their wonderful vacation, they are reliving every horrific moment of that accident over and over again. They are so sorry that they have taken the lives of these two women and destroyed the lives of their family members. They too feel as if their lives have been ruined. They do not know how they can forgive themselves for this horrible accident. However, it was an accident. They had not been drinking and were not speeding. Their lights were on, and they did not think that it was a deer. They did not see the two women until it was too late. It was an unfortunate accident that they would take back if they could. They stopped immediately and tried to go back to help. However, others at the scene made them stay at their car and would not let them leave. Please understand that they are truly sorry for what happened. They are struggling and could use any thoughts and prayers that you could give them as well. I will continue to pray for the victims family.

I am heart broken over this story....I have spent many vacations in this exact area and to hear about this is truly tragic. It appears this is another example of how precious life is. It makes me want to hug my kids especially tight tonight.
God be with them and peace to all involved.

I also have worked with Cheryl and Kara at the local hospital here in Clearfield,PA and I send my deepest heartfelt sympathies out to BOTH families, it was a shame that they had to cross a large highway like that. We here in the country setting do not have 5 lane highways to get to a parking lot or to wherever they were going.May you rest in peace.To the other couple that hit them, maybe someday you will find the peace in your heart to move on. God Bless
