Steak and Shake and Crash

Yesterday's accident at the Westside Steak and Shake was a major topic of discussion on the WIKY Morning Show.  Since the accident involved an elderly gentleman who mistook the gas for the brake as the cause, the subject of seniors behind the wheel was predictably at the forefront of the conversation.  In fact, Diane had noticed this story from ABC News just last week -

Vanishing Businesses

 
A Wall Street blogger recently listed a number of familiar business, including some with locations in Evansville, that might not make it to the end of 2011.
