A 67-year old Florida man and two local persons were killed in a head-on collision on Hwy 281 north of Anadarko, OK, in SW OK. A man and a woman had been having a domestic argument in a local casino, were kicked out, and left at a high rate of speed in a Dodge Durango. The female driver lost control, went into the ditch on the right, overcorrected into the left lane and collided headon with the Chevy Silverado pickup pulling a fifth wheel (Local news said it was a bumper-pull camper trailer; however, I saw the wreckage - sure lookd like a 5th wheel to me.) The Durango was going downhill; the pickup may have still been in a 55 mph zone and was going uphill. This are is about five miles from my home}

So sad that lives were lost due to a domestic problem by strangers.

That's an argument for staying off two lane roads.

Unless a 4 (or more) lane has barriers or cables separating each side, crossover head-ons are not uncommon.

I figure you got more reaction time on a wider roadway.

This was a two-lane US highway. They may have been in a 55mph zone when the accident happened. The pickup would either have still been in the 55 mph zone or just left it for 65; however, he would still be going uphill and most likely would not have reached highway speed. The other vehicle was going downhill and the speed limit apparently made no difference to them anyway.
