Bad wreck on I-90

Saw a bad wreck on 90 this morning about 7:45. I was merging onto the interstate from Barrington Rd. There was a semi in the westbound lanes, and as he was traveling towards me it looked like something in the trailer had caught fire. As I passed, I saw that there was a car pinned under the trailer, sideways against the tires. At that point the semi was still trying to slow down and stop. The car roof was pretty much completely collapsed. Hope whoever was in the car is ok, cause it sure didn't look good.

Yea they are having to LifeLine someone. My prayers go out to all involved. it looks pretty bad on TV when they were showing.


I'm sick of following my dreams. I'm just going to ask them where they're goin', and hook up with them later!!

That can't be good... there wasn't much left of the passenger compartment of that car... I hope things turn out for the best

Ride smart... stupid hurts.

Everyone crashes. Some get back on. Some don't. Some can't...

Godspeed 788!!! We miss you!

It is amazing that she has survived. One can only wonder why she did what she did and if there was realy a racoon? I do not care what is upfront of me I am not jumping under a semi.

A man should choose a friend who is better than himself. There are plenty of acquaintances in the world; but very few real friends.
