sensitive warning: nothing graphic but ... I cannot guarantee no one died in what I saw. I still haven't found anything on the news on it yet.
Driving down the highway, headed home after a job interview (no joy there) the traffic dropped to a slow crawl.
I wasn't in a big hurry myself so I just stayed in my lane, wondered about what had happened, which lane I should be in, and watched some of the people jockeying around as they tried to get a better view.
Some cars took to the shoulder - but they turned out to be headed to the exit anyway. Some time later, a small tow truck went by too, but I suspected it was headed to help out with whatever had happened.
It wasn't as bad as other jams I've been in. Never came to a complete stop. And a couple of miles down, almost at the scene I found out I had to switch lanes... and it was pretty easy. No one was really making it hard.
Yep a traffic accident. I saw some cops there, and then spied a red canvas bag on the side of the road. I turned my head to look at it, hoping it wasn't a body bag - just a tool bag.
Then I saw the actual accident.
One of the workers cleaning up the rubble was looking right at me too. And probably saw the look of horror on my face.
Two mangled trucks, upside down
and twisted on the road.
I'm really hoping no one died in that. Really really hoping.
