So sad...
Just took 2 hours to get home. Why? Some black car (like a Maxima) crossed over the grass median, hitting a red car (in the pic). The right front of the black car was smashed in, meaning they were are a pretty acute angle to the road. Doubt the red car had even a chance to avoid them. Heard the people in the red car died. 2 other cars involved minorly. An ambulance left with someone, but I was too far back to see.

Any idea what kind of car this is? Sorry for the crappy pic - it's my picture phone. I thought an MG, my friend thought a Cobra (but the back bumper isn't right).

Anyone have an idea what kind of car this is?

Looks kinda like an older model Mazda Miata (not sure on the spelling of it).

Checked on Google - those seem to have same-color bumpers, not the chrome one that the red car has.

Looks like a Miata to me too. I'm sure they can be customized with chrome and stuff like that.

Nevermind. Not Miata. Door handle is wrong too.

I keep thinking. I was so pissed about being delayed getting home. But I will get home... I GOT home. And when the SO asked what I wanted for dinner... I couldn't say. Because it seemed to trite, after people dying. I absolutely didn't care. I'm alive, and that's all that counts... if I hadn't wanted to get more water for the drive (45 minutes, but it's hot out), or to hit the bathroom one final time (again, long drive) - that could have been me, there to be knocked out of this world.


Puts things in perspective.

(but I still wonder what kind of car that was)

Yikes. It's been kind of a gruesome night around these parts, hasn't it? Between this and the shooting downtown...

Possibly one of the new T-Birds? Or poss. even a Jag.

Either way, convertibles + rollovers= bad outcome for everyone...

Jesus christ. I think of how that stuff could happen to me every day. Do they know why the first car crashed over the grass in the first place?

the shape of it looks almost like a jazzed up chrysler sebring to me but the door handle doesn't look right.

i had something like this happen to me last year (the realization that it could have been me, not the whole accident part). i was driving home from chase and there was a big huge accident. when i finally got past where it had happened there was a black blazer in the ditch with blood drying on the road (if i remember right 4 or 5 people died in that one). what got me the most though was seeing random little things from the car like a purse, a tampon, and a taco bell cup.

what an image

do you keep a camera in the car? I've thought of it once or twice, but, too hot here, or cold.

I thought of keeping a tape recorder, decided against it for same reasons.

Just want to let you know I'm not plagarizing your writing in my file. It's just for me.

God, no wonder people were killed. They must have been going at least 60 mph.

Re: what an image

It's the camera on my Treo that I used for the pic.

And what is the "plagarizing my writing in my file" part? I don't understand... but I'm probably fine with it.

Re: what an image

I explained to you later what I was doing with your lims.
Including them in my collection of commentaries from
SF and Burn in a file. Plagarism is wrong word.
No intent to publish or do anything public with them.
Geeze, I'm glad I reread that last sentence. Almost wrote
pubic instead of public. LOL It's late.

Have a good week and I'll send the lims as soon as I get them
