    Sad and bizarre story. I guess when it's your time to go, that's it.

    That is bizarre! How likely is it that a boulder falling off a mountain would hit and kill you while driving along in your car? I can't imagine what his wife was going through. From the article:

    "It hit Murphy and knocked him unconscious. His wife, Jennifer, put the SUV in neutral, hoping it would stop. After traveling a little more than one mile, Jennifer Murphy, working from the front passenger seat, finally managed to get the vehicle stopped."

    It could have killed the entire family and others if she hadn't brought that car to a stop before crashing.

    Prayers for the quick recovery of the 11 yr old that was injured.

    Probably very. My parents are from PA, and for years, and I guess even now, along the very mountainous PA Turnpike and other highways there, you see those "falling rocks" signs and big mesh fences, with rocks in them!
