martinsburg@herald-mail.com INWOOD - On the other side of Cynthia Smailes-Rybak's back yard, cars, pickup trucks and tractor-trailers rumble by, visible and audible as they make their way up and down Interstate 81. It's the road Smailes-Rybak's daughter, Amanda Smailes, could have taken Nov. 24, 1996. But Smailes didn't like the high speed required on the interstate, and chose instead after ending her shift at Wal-Mart to drive home on U.S. 11, a two-lane road that parallels the interstate.
