On 41st? No, this was on the highway near 41st. Seriously, that shouldn't be a hard detail to mess up.

All the more reason for the newspaper to get the story correct.
I swear the Sentinel is hiring high school students as editors these days.

The one who didn't get flown to a trauma center was obviously too unstable to make the flight to San Jose. It is common practice in EMS that soneone who is 'in-extremis' goes to the nearest emergency department regardless if it is a trauma center or not.

Why won't they release the names? it's not like they were running for any type of political office or CEO of some major corporation?

All 5 of those people where buddies of mine, some the two guys in the backseat I recently saw them a couple days ago, as for the person who died... he was a great friend and he has left some brothers and family with only memories of his great self, I won't say names, that is all disclosed later, but I do feel that this has hit close to home and it was a terrible accident that has affected the life of me and my friends. As for the accident details, yea the sentinel was wrong with the details, friends coming down from frisco, Blue caddilacs show, everyone falls asleep in the car, I've nodded a few times coming out of that HW 17, its hard to stay up after a good show,and seeing all you're passengers aleeps and driving on a empty road. The outcome is a reality that leaves people empty and with of sense of hopelessness. It can happen to anyone I guess, but when its you're buddies getting the siccors end of life, that when those feelings boil out from you're heart and clog up you're throat choking you as you sob for you're friends death. My sinsere apologies to all the family who is probably still absorbing the shock of their lost son/boyfrien/friend/cousin/bro ther... etc. My condolenses to you.

Peace.
Hugs to all you guys who knew these people.

The sentinal has it wrong. The death was at the scene. The police scanner requested the CORONER drive on the wrong side of the freeway to get to the accident. The integrity of reporting facts by the sentinal is in question. In the newspaper there is no mention of the fatality. This is a small detail compared to the many lives affected by this tragedy.

my condolences to you for losing you friend and may all the injured make speedy and complete recoveries.
all of us: remember tragedies lies these and know that driving sleepy is just as dangerous as driving drunk. the person in the passenger side should alawys stay awake to make sure the driver is alert and,it is better to pull over and nap for a few minutes, then to arrive home in a box!

I think you have to be pretty stable before they will medivac you out. I know that sounds like an oxymoron but They had to wait awhile at the dominican helipad before they medivacced my friend out.
