    We rely on rain to wash our streets clean. The longer we go without substantial rainfall the more oil, soot and diesel dust gathers on the roadway. When we get just enough rain to wet the road the road becomes very slick. I would bet that in “drought years” the vehicle accident rate is way up on rainy days… We have not had enough rainfall to clean the streets so please be careful when the road is wet. Don’t tailgate! And don’t speed!

      I am a friend of the families and Honestly his wife was crazy I tend to think amongst others in the family or cirlcle of friends that she put her foot on the gas pedal and grabbed the wheel to kill them both. I wish the officers could look into that because the amount of force to the tree shows something else happend.
