  • Why close the road 1 hour and 15 minutes after the accident? By then, the passing vehicles have probably tainted the scene. If it’s just for measurements and diagrams, closing 2 west bound lanes during the AM rush hour seems kind of excessive.

  • Must have been a student on his way to school or that reckless stupid kid that wakes the neighborhood up every morning just about that time. Either way, looks like he won’t be riding his moped anytime soon.
