    I came upon this accident about 1 1/2 hours after it happened. Emergency personnel were still there as was the horribly mangled car. It was chilling, I thought the car had somehow fallen from a road above, as it was so smashed up. My heart goes out to the families of the victims.

    Crazy Baldhead,
    Well, they may not have gone there, but you sure as hell did, didn’t you, Mr. Sensitivity? I bet it makes you feel…what? Superior? And here you are talking about ‘standards’? Really?!! I’m sure the family of the person that died in the car crash really appreciates that you are looking out for them in your snarky comment. You’re kind of a jerk.

    I’m disappointed; I was expecting a witty headline like:

    “Why You Shouldn’t Take on a Boulder with a Toyota.”

    I guess KSRW has standards after all!
