Default Close Call......I'd say so !!!!!!

I got a call telling me to grab the camera and head out.
I saw what the call was about once I hit the first intersection near my house. There were lots of flashing yellow lights and this was the scene

There were 2 women in the car and one of them just happened to work for the local paper.
The pics will be forwarded tomorrow

Wow, that would be scary!!! I saw a bad wreck on the way home. They had to detour us but one thing I saw was a car that looked like it tried to drive up a phone pole. It wasn't pretty either.

Wow, that'* crazy. I would've had to change my underwear after that one.

There was a wreck over here once where a car ran off the road, flipped about 10 times, and bounced 30 feet up in the air and hit a telephone pole, like the top. 1 dude died immediately and the other lost a leg and barely lived.
