    I drove by it yesterday around 1pm, and they still had the road closed. They had everyone EB get off in Columbus by the Pilot and come back out near Laurel. They had a jack knifed truck in the median and the guy who hit the 2 workers, truck and u haul flipped in the median

    I have people pass me all the time in the lane closest to the tow truck cop car etc. I really hope it was a accident and not on purpose .

    "Look! That idiot truck driver is slowing down for no reason. I'll just pass that moron and go around."

    And then there's two unfortunate fatalities due to an impatient driver.

    In Ontario you have to slow down to. 40MPH when passing any parked emergency vehicles or service vehicles when their lights are flashing. It likely saves some lives

    It sure looks like the pick up driver was tailgating the semi because if he couldn’t see the flashing lights up ahead he was too close to the trailer
