I had to dig to find this story – upon being notified that a former co-worker was killed in a crash last night. Those that reported the crash to me couldn’t find any media on the story.
My information differs from this report, saying he crashed into another car and then was hit by a big truck and sandwiched to death.
I’ve noted this story because it shows how real stories are reported with little or no detail, if at all. I’d be surprised if there was any follow up to the story.
If I had to guess what happened, I’d say there was a flash freeze in the area that turned the road into a skating rink. Knowing what I know about our area’s drivers, most don’t bother to lower their speed.
