I was driving across town to see my grandmother and babysit my almost 3 year old cousin since they both live walking distance from each other. On the way, there is a fast :waxer: tunnel that goes under the Bosphorus to avoid the heavy traffic on the bridges since it's free on one way (and the direction I was heading). On the tunnel I saw a :narc: on a bike that looks like he's about to pull someone over (that tunnel has speed cameras and I always make sure to keep it under the limit). The :narc: bike passed me well over 80 mph with his lights. A couple miles later, traffic came to a halt (which means there is an accident most likely), I saw multiple cars pulled over with the hazards and 3 more :narc: with an ambulance that just arrived, turns out there was on the ground a guy lying cold and lot of flood came out of his head. I opened my window and I overheard there was a hit and run, and the guy was crossing the road where he shouldn't have cause it's partially a highway.

Last time I saw a dead body on the floor was 6 years ago from a roadtrip in Turkey, although they're covered by some cloth or blankets and the Kia Sportage where they died pancaked where it can easily fits the truck-bed on a brim. It was just bad just witnessing it.
First and only recent death I witnessed was similar, a few months ago, at an intersection about a mile down from our place in MX. Guy had been hit by a car, lying there on the ground, blood rusing out of his head, deader than hell. Cop had just arrived. Pedestrian deaths are COMMON in the desert in the U.S., a mix of high traffic speeds, poor lighting, and retirees and homeless who just ain't moving fast enough.
That is :mindblown: ingly brutal for sure! Also that stretch where it happened has no cameras, so it's definitely inevitable if someone was trying to get across, especially when there's no sidewalk nor a crosswalk. The thing here is we barely have enough cops that just stay on the side of the road incase if they're breaking the speed limit and the like, but we have lots and lots of cameras where you get your ticket in the mail. But for areas that don't, some people speed (some that goes that typically considered as reckless) and some are just simply obeying it simply for common sense.

Years back, while wife unit and I were dating, I was driving on a local divided Highway in Jersey (RT 17) to meet her for dinner. As I came up over a rise I saw that there was a car facing me on my side of the road. I slowed down and realized the car had spun out and 3 dudes were standing in front of the car with one guy, doubled over puking. I pulled over and asked if they were okay and they just forlornly pointed back down the way I had come.

There was what appeared to b a pile of clothes lying on the shoulder abut 50 yards back. When I realized what it really was I screamed, "Did any one see if HE WAS ALIVE? OR CALL AN AMBULANCE??? "No we were afraid to look but the cops are on the way."

"FUUUUCK!"

I ran over and this poor dude was on his stomach, convulsing, with a tiremark on his pulled up jacket. I covered him with my own jacket and tried to loosen clothes and his shoes (Basic treatment for shock that I had learned in the service). With that, the police showed up and the first thing the officer did was to ROLL this poor bastard over...hard. I was like "Whoa whoa whoa WHAT THE HELL ARE YOU DOING??!? He likely has a broken back no?!? He says cockily, "Sir, I have to establish ID and you need to leave the scene."

Shooken, sadly knowing I really couldn't do any more, I did as instructed.

Hours later I called in to the police station to see how the guy was doing and to see if maybe I could get my coat back. The answers to both questions were negative.

I will always wonder whether that ill timed rollover was the culprit in this dude's demise.

I was talking to the LT of my university police department when visiting south Florida. They had a really bad t-bone accident, motorcycle involved.

Story is that 2 motorcycles were hauling butt down a pretty open road, but an older dude in a Corolla turned left across the lanes to a side street, and one of the motorcyclists avoided it but another hit him head on. LT took me with him to the scene as I still had my old intern badge/ID with me.

DOA basically. County police was on scene as it was jurisdiction, but then we pulled up, another local city’s PD responded and ultimately FHP(troopers) who did the investigation.

Victim’s buddies came running from the dorms saying he was just with them joking and shit. Bad news when the amber lamps leaves without him.

Pic of the Corolla attached. Motorcycle had to be doing over 100. Red motorcycle in the background by all the people. Body was next to the motorcycle but covered up.

That was horrible news, good thing you did whatever you could to help him out, sad the officers didn't know much better about the body situation.

Had another plumbing fiasco today...more clogs between the cleanout and sewer. Waiting for that fucker to totally implode. We have insurance. But, home depot had the specific plunger ends for curb/sewer systems so I was able to get that snd a 6 foot pipe and go to town. Must have been a pretty good scene - furious plunging with a massive plunger with shit flying everywhere over my back deck. Love owning an old house.

On the plus side, canceled most of my meetings and called the day off except for one, which went amazing with the exec team of a global athletic apparel brand. Assuming they didnt see me literally covered in shit.

I just got the greatest phone call from my folks this morning. Apparently a huge hail storm rolled thru at 3 something o’clock this morning.

Skylights smashed along with a couple windows. Siding on one side of the house swiss cheese’d. My dad’s turbo FRS might be totaled. Tennis ball size to maybe even baseball. Their brand new metal roof is dented to shit and probably needs to be replaced too. They need to GTFO of Orange Beach because first Hurricane Sally hit them directly now this? Fuck that.

Fuck man, sorry to hear that.

We got hit pretty hard here around the same time, was the worst thunderstorm I've seen in years.
Worse than all the hurricanes that got close in 2020 for sure. Fortunately, I never lost power, and only have a downed branch in the yard.
