Oh you were there when the wreck happened? I didn't seem to catch your name? Who are you? Because I was there. And let me tell you the "Mayor of Gates" wasn't doing anything any other normal person would have done. If you were there, why didn't you mention that there wasn't any officers or anyone stopping traffic on that where his happened. I happened to be traveling a few cars behind the "mayor of gates" and know for a fact that the man did everything in his power to stop his vehicle. It's not his fault that another wrecked had happened and once ha came upon the vehicle he lost control of his vehicle went about 20 feet in the air and crashed. My thoughts and prayers are with the child and family and they are also with the "mayor of gates" as everyone is going through this difficult time. That was one horrible crash scene and I will also say that after the second wreck occurred, where the child was hurt, is when cops decided to block off traffic on that end. This is a horrible site to come to read such sick things about people especially when someone else's life could have been taking but yet he has to face every day wondering what's going to happening.. I think it would have been been different if the man had been drinking and driving or just not paying attention but it clearly to see to anyone at the scene that he didn't intentionally come bailing down the road and ram anyone over. I hope anyone else that reads this only prays for this child and family and the "mayor of gates" because I'm pretty sure he and the family is in contact!!!!
bad to the bone

From a source working the scene officers tried slowing him down and he never showed them any mind! To hit a car and do what it did he had to be booking it through there!!!!!
