Ouch! Hope everyone is ok.

There was a Honda CRV flipped on its side across 2 lanes of traffic here the other day, and about 4 other cars behind it that had rear-ended each other.

Distracted driving laws existed before cell phones. And it wasn't because lawmakers had crystal balls. :grin:

If this was in Texas, I'd say someone fell asleep with the cruse control set.

Yow...

I witnessed an accident today as well, but didn't stop to take photos. Sat at a stop light watching someone of an unspecified gender jabbering on their phone out the door, hopping in their very new looking Merc C-Class, and backing out the driveway straight into a Ford 1/2 ton that couldn't stop or swerve. Thought I could avoid the car pieces driving around it through the center lane, but I probably have a small piece or two of a Merc in my tires now.

High speed heavy traffic? AKA Tailgating?
In Cincinnati, this is just before the bridge to Ky. which at that time of day always backs up unexpectedly then on top of that the construction that has the traffic down to 3 lanes that are not well defined. I am sure the wreck was a combination of reasons but most likely not paying attention.

Why I use my Bluetooth only in my car. Looks like I am talking to myself but safer.

FYI the only people hurt were in the truck that hit the camper.

From the damage it looks like the camper might have been stopped when the impact happened.
What a freaking mess...
Most likely stopped and offending truck was either trying to get on highway or quickly pass at what they thought was an opening at high speed and no where to go. Bam! Couldn't go to the right bc of construction barriers
