This accident made no sense. I drove past it this morning and I can't imagine why anyone would have been up on the highway right there walking in the road.

sometimes the only explanation is drugs/alcohol.

Or mental issues.

It had nothing to do with drugs/ alcohol or mental issues. Instead of making dumb comments show some respect for the people involved and the people suffering because of the accident. If you can only imagine what everyone including the families are going through.

If you do not know the family or the person that has lost their life and there is no report you don't have any clue what so ever do not Judge. This was a dearly loved man by his family and friends he was part of a very large and close knit family He will be missed severly.
