So, a cement truck overturned at the intersection on the 11-E at Applebee's / McDonald's and there were cars pulled off in every lot with people onlooking and taking pictures. What morons. I had two Facebook "friends" post pictures as they were pulled off onlooking. Many will say that they are first responders, volunteer firefighters, etc., but it seemed the situation was well under control without these morons getting in the way of getting the truck back upright - and not to mention their disturbance to traffic flow and creating additional distraction as people passed.

Yeah, saw that. I had to detour though the McDonalds lot to get around it and people were lined up in the grass watching.

I know, there were so many people there, I couldn't find a spot!
