  1. China Blossom is the name of the restaurant. Not China Bloom. Make sure your facts are right before blindly publishing something.

    • Thank you for the correction, Mary. What is your phone number? We’ll have the local reporter give you a call as our go-to fact checker on “Chinese Buffet restaurant names that are the scene of fatal traffic accidents” in the future so we can withhold the important details until we are absolutely certain that no one along the way got a local landmark’s name mixed up in the unneccesary rush to let people know about a fatal traffic accident. We wouldn’t want some morbid tourist trying to take pictures at the scene of the crash in an unsuspecting and uninvolved “China Bloom’s” parking lot after all for our fault.

      • Bravo Ben, we don’t want to piss anyone off of the Asian persuasion such as my self with the incorrect information of the restaurant when for sure the information of the accident would be secondary!! LOL!

        • If someone gets upset because a spell checker changed a word in a breaking report then it’s probably got nothing to do with their ethnicity. But there are plenty of good anger management professionals in the Delta to see for anyone suffering from such a malady.
