stupified

I wish I would have taken a different route back to work.

Instead, I came upon traffic stopped with cars scattered all over a side-street. At first I thought it was a pile-up.

Nope.

As everyone was trying to U-turn to get out of the mess I saw it. Someone was lying in the road with a blanket over part of them and people were standing around with hands over their mouths, pacing. Others were frantically calling on their cell phones.

I know all this b/c the firetruck, 2 police cars, and an ambulance arrived blocking my path to leave.

I really just wanted to get out of there. As some would be compelled to run and help, I'd much rather flee. As I was parked there witnessing this event I really wanted to cry. I have no idea who this person was but the thought of someone being hit by a car really hurt.

My condolences go out to the family.

that reminds me of a joke about a quadruplegic and a beach...

seriously though... yeah, being hit by a car is no fun, just ask ted. no one wants to get in the middle of that i think...

they should show that motorcycle vs. semi more often and people might drive more sensibly...

yeah, and they might pay attention to someone other than themselves for once too, snicker
