Ummm, what happened to the editing on the caption under the photo?? Sorry, but as it currently reads, it doesn't make sense.

Sorry to hear of this accident but at least no one was killed. it's amazing how the police set a block away from 27th and iowa and bust drivers that cut thru Runza or drive the incoming lane for 20 feet to turn left down the access street that goes by dale willeys. but on the other hand look at all the IDIOTS in this town that get away with running red lights and turning on red lights without making any effort to slow down or looking for entering traffic. i think $200.00 would be a good start for a fine. sometimes i wonder what good traffic lights are anymore.

"... you'd really better look both ways at every intersection even if your light is green."

But, but....aren't you supposed to do that anyway?

How can some of those drivers possibly do that if they're texting?

Prayers to all those involved and their families. I saw LifeStar land and take off...
