    I was there shortly after it happened. The pedestrian was on the corrner waiting to cross the street, wrong place wrong time. It was a really traumatic scene since the pedestrian was cut in half. He was covered up but his liver was laying on the streets and part of his intestine was on the sidewalk. I will never forget that scene as long as I live.

    I was at work when I heard about what had just happend. I saw the scene from my office window. Thankfully, I couldnt see much due to distance. I was only able to see the fire truck and police directing the traffic. I wouldn’t want those images in my head. I felt horrible the rest of the day. Pore man! Just standing there. My praires are with his family.
