JJT Posted November 18, 2007 Report Share Posted November 18, 2007 Early this morning myself and some friends witnessed the preamble and the aftermath of a fatal car crash. Basically, we were heading down a 4 lane freeway in the slow lane and a car careened by, just missing us. It was going the wrong way in the fast lane. We pulled over and called it into 911, then went on our way. Upon returning to town, we were greeted by the flashing lights and mayhem of a wreck caused by that same car. Very eerie. Also extremely sad. About a mile down the road, the car that just missed us initiated a head on collision with another vehicle and burst into flames, killing the driver. The car that was struck contained 4 female students returning to George Fox University (outside of Portland, OR for those who've never heard of it). One of them didn't make it. I am assuming the driver going the wrong way was under the influence. The police asked us to give statements, and then we drove home in a daze. I don't really know how to process this, so blogging/posting this on the boards seemed to be the thing to do. I'll link to the news story in the morning. I have rarely felt this powerless.
