There have been so many accidents in the news in just the last two weeks that I'm in a daze.

I hope all the victims and families can pull through all this better than I could if I were in their situation.

It was very sad. I was the first vehicle to drive up on it before the police and everyone else got there and i literally cried. I must have just seen the man because i don't remember seeing a woman. My guess is she was located somewhere other than by the man. Prayers to the family.
