Was at intersection not long after it happened,,Very bad accident.. I saw 4 cars involved.. The shape of at least 2 vehicles ,one vehicle was up on the lawn of Hampton Inn ,it was a Town Car and the driver side was totally gone ,another car was even worse.. I can t imagine what kind of injuries there were.. Lunch time so there are people trying to get in as much as they can in a 45-60 min lunch .. There are cameras at the intersection... Slow done everyone , please don t pass the lights .. Its a lunch hour , You can t fit it all in ...

People fly off of the eastbound Service Rd and make a right onto south bound Vets without even slowing to look to see if they are cutting into traffic...I see it every day! They come around the turn 2 lanes at a time...I've been cut off there several times. If I wasn't aware of the situation I would have been slammed into more than once...I am wary when I approach. I would bet that the accident was due to that scenario.

Tango, everyone just relies on spell check these days. I don't think anyone proofreads their work anymore.
