This is right by my house. I saw the scene. The vehicle actually ran off of I-55 and rolled down the hill onto the Frontage Road in Burr Ridge. The vehicle was upside down and the body was laying in the roadway

I think if my wife died in a car accident, I would want to die, too.

Man, I was in that traffic this afternoon. It was horrible. I was cursing the luck of whoever got into a fender bender to tangle up the traffic (being late to a meeting) but HELLO. I didn't know someone had DIED in this crash! God bless the survivor, it must be so hard to survive your spouse!

Makes me think how very unimportant that meeting was, compared to the tragedy that was happening right before my nose.

MehtaJi, you are a such a sweet person, sometimes people are just cynics about road crashes and traffic delays and so on.
