A few minor things pertaining to this story....
I was the last car to pass by the car that was hit. I saw the whloe tragic thing in my mirrors about 50 feet behind me. I called 911 seconds after the wreck and gave them information about what happened. I already had the phone out to call 911 to try to get the stopped car some help.
The stopped car was NOT in the Car Pool lane (as your story states). It was in the General Purpose lane (one to the right of the carpool lane).
I don't know if it was running, didn't notice any flat tires (but was not looking at the tires or other details). It's headlights / running lights were on, it DID NOT have the 4 way flashers on. It was a big hazzard. It's hard to tell why the other driver did not notice it in time but from the back it looked like any other car on the road. It just wasn't moving.
I wish we had more follow ups on these accidents and point out the mistakes that made it all happen. Then maybe, just maybe, the next person who is crazy enough to even consider stopping on the traveled lanes of a freeway because of a flat tire will think twice, waste the tire, pull off the road and not get killed.
