Hwy 97 & Daimler

Postby WalterWhite » Dec 9th, 2017, 6:17 pm

Anyone know anything specific regarding an accident here around 5 PM? Had to detour around on Ross Rd. Hate to speculate but there was only one car on the side of the road about 200 - 300 ft. past the intersection and what looked an awful lot like someone laying on the shoulder about 100 ft. past the intersection. Looked like emergency crews were just arriving as the ambulance passed just as my lineup of traffic was merging back onto 97 at Shannon Lake Rd. Hope it’s not what it looked like.

Glad your buddy’s ok. Nothing as yet on any news sites so hopefully it wasn’t what it looked like when I passed. There is mention of a bank robbery at BMO around the same time - maybe the thief ran himself over :)

Okay scratching my head at that one - why post an accident from a couple of months ago unrelated to this one?

I think the question simply is - what does that have to do with answering my OP - other than complicate things?

Nothing since there does not appear to be a reported incident (usually accident involving pedestrians get report about right away). As I said there have been a number of accidents in that area over the years involving pedestrians. The 1 I gave link to was only couple of months back.

Thats all

I think the bigger question to WW is how does what did or didn't happen going to change your life? Why all the drama?

An even YUGER question is, how is wondering about why someone discusses something on a discussion forum supposed to be changing your life and why be dramatic about it?
