We live near the Americana and saw the Accident afterward just before the fire trucks arrived. Horrific scene it was handled well but it wa surreal. That was the first time I've ever seen anything like that.
It appeared that witnesses were waiting near the scene several people stopped. It is a very busy intersection 24/7.
It was dark I feel terrible for all involved.
