Crash n Burn

I'm driving home from Blaine with a friend following not far behind when I see lights ahead. At first I think someone's getting a sobriety test but quickly realize it's bigger than that. There are at least 6 sets of rollers ahead. Traffic slows quickly. There's an older model sedan overturned with both driver's side and passenger's side doors open like a butterfly. Glass is shattered everywhere. There are multiple police, an ambulance and a firetruck facing the wrong way and I felt sadness. Fear. Empathy to whomever was involved and their families. Regardless of the circumstance, it's not something that could have turned out OK. Someone was gravely hurt and I'm affected. From the jet needing a jumpstart, to the final broomball Sunday on Saturday, to Blaine without fatality, to sorrow over a stranger.
