That's one way to do it.
Tragically selfish

That is a tragic, selfish act. Tragic to take one's own life, sensing no hope, no love, no future. Tragic to not think clearly of the consequences. Selfish to take one's own life, having no sense of the act's impact on others---especially those innocently driving along I-94, suddenly, shockingly hitting a falling/fallen person on the freeway with absolutely no way to avoid doing so. Selfish because this person's sad, desperate act could have been avoided---or done in private---to avoid the forver scarring of countless others who witnessed it or experienced it.

Can you even imagine how horrific it was for the drivers that hit her? Just awful, not their fault, but they have to live with that memory forever.

I was thinking the same thing. Three or four cars hit her after she jumped. Wow...nothing like inflicting drama/trauma on other peoples life. I can't imagine how I'd feel if I was in one of those cars, but I have to think it would be pretty upsetting.

Its weird I was right there just as cops showed up and blocked us off. We were forced to the off ramp of White bear Ave and then went right back on 94 East. I feel kinda dumb because I didn't see anything. No body, no blood, even the cars pulled off on the side seemed fine. I had no idea what the reason was until I read this. I'm glad that I missed being involved or a witness, but I feel kinda dumb that I didn't see anything.

When she heard that John Harrington won the elections she couldn't take it anymore. This is a good way to not vote for John Harrington. Too bad he won already. Poor soul.

What a shame, how messed up are the drivers that struck this woman. That kind of stuff sticks with you for a while. Ending your life is your choice and its going to effect your loved ones enough, why take more down with you.

I saw it too from the other side:( I did not know what the yellow thing was and then saw her face down...can't believe they did not cover her up.

This is really sad and people are wrong to be making fun of a situation like this . This person had family even if she doesn't , I dont think it does any good to be rude about tragedy. No one knows the struggles other people have .
