In Memory of Dannon Jim & Shynoah Jim

This Christmas will not bring the celebration this family might have been expecting because of a preventable truck underride crash.

They say the big rig was slowing while approaching a red light at the intersection when it was struck from behind by the SUV.

State Police say there were no signs of skid marks or braking before impact.

They say 34-year-old Dannon Jim and 11-year-old Shynoah Jim both were declared dead at the scene of the crash.

No matter what the cause of the crash, the outcome could have been different if there had been better underride protection.
