      It’s not like they could get onto the freeway to take pictures.

      • Not that it really matters, but the reason I posted these Tweets was a) because they were available, had pics and told the story and b) because I was dealing with getting my kids to school and couldn’t get to the scene.

      I was watching this unfold from my desk at work this morning. at 6:00AM Twitter was the place that had the most frequent, current, and descriptive info. For something like this that impacts rush-hour traffic, I would much rather see tweets than nothing at all.

    Any update on the condition of the injured couple? I really hope their condition has improved. It is hard to shake the anger of what this man did to this poor family.

      The victims, of who I was their maid of honor at their wedding just 4 months ago, are not good. My best friend remains in a coma like state with a serious brain injury. Her husband, although not as serious as she, also suffered a brain injury. Both remain in the ICU ward. This is just horrific, we are all worried sick about their recovery. This person has caused such misery to all of us and especially to two of the nicest people who were simply heading to the airport for their honeymoon. Please pray for their speedy recovery. Thank you. XO

        Thank you for posting this update. I am very angry they are so injured and hope the drunk low life who hurt them will be kept from ever hurting anyone again! I am thinking of them often and hope they are able to recover.
