Tried to get on EOO around 420 and police were blocking it off. Had to take a nice long detour home.
About once every other month or so some guy hits a pole or sign on the Elgin Ohare. No idea why.

The resons are always the same, impatience and speed. Drive like an idiot, die like one.

Let's not judge Adam to be an "idiot". We don't know whether he was speeding ... although who doesn't on the tollroad. Could be someone forced him over. Chances are he will not survive his injuries, which were major. Your unkind comment does him an injustice and would only be hurtful to other family members who may come upon your post. His parents and siblings are in deep grief.

I would agree...as a witness to the aftermath of this wreck, this guy needs all the prayers we can offer for him and his family.

I hope he pulls through...
