Yesterday's Post

I mentioned yesterday about an unnecessary 4-hour freeway closure due to an accident from a driver entering the freeway in the wrong direction. Btw, the driver clearly at fault was the only fatality, but still, the 'condolence factor' kicks in, specifically, the length of the freeway closure is a makeshift memorial relegating the inconvenience to commuters caught in the procession being late to work, etc., secondary to the time required to complete a thorough investigation in accordance with the nature of a death. But to determine what? There's numerous eyewitnesses on the scene with earlier calls to 9-11 reporting a driver traveling in the wrong directions. There are also thousands of passing motorists who already tracked the debris with their tires far and wide miles down the road before the area was cordoned off and the freeway closed.

Cloudia- no matter how you look at it, it's tragic all around. I don't know if you caught it on the tv news, but the woman who was hit head on, she always shows up for work early about 5:30am. Her co-workers had a bad feeling when she wasn't there and tried to call her and probably the police. My grip was about the unnecessary length of the freeway closure because it's ridiculous Even with the Chanco case, they left the dead baby lying under a blanket on the hot freeway for hours before the took the body away, not to mention shutting down the freeway for hours, so it all doesn't make much sense to me.
