sad and disturbing accident

I drive through that intersection every day and would never expect a fatal accident to occur there. Very tragic.

Prayers to the deceased and his friends and family. I'd like to know a bit more about the at-fault driver. Driver's license? Insurance? Under the influence? I know The Times won't be inclined to ask or report on my simple request but it never hurts to ask. Or does it?

We were there and I went to help, but by the time we realized there was a third car, a RAV about 100 feet down the road wrapped around a pole, the fire department was arriving. Very sad.
