There's a bridge east of the East Lawrence exit (closer to the exit than the rest area) that's really wavy; I wonder if that's where he lost control? The lane closest to the barrier is the worst.

There was a fatality accident last night on 59 Hwy south of Lawrence, but no mention of it in this paper.

Posts should be closed on all fatality or life threatening accidents. Not even condolences are appropriate from the anonymous contributors to the LJW
