Scary Wreck on 288 and Beltway 8

Did anybody else see the wreck going southbound before the beltway around 1 am? I saw a truck or van with a trailer hitched on it and I think a civic with its back up against the right shoulder wall. The civic seemed to be cut in half almost since most of it was smashed. I also saw a couple of bodies with covers over them on the ground. It seemed like they were ejected from their cars. I think there was a third vehicle involved as well. I saw all this while riding on my bike going north. It really freaked me out since I was by myself. I swear there were drunk drivers all over tonight. It almost makes me not want to ride out at night.

Re: Scary Wreck on 288 and Beltway 8

seen my share of accidents... I saw this one guy smash into a tree right in front of me and watched him die right in front of me as well. I pulled over and tried to help him but he snapped his neck and I could see his bone stickin out the back of his neck.. he breathed for a little bit but I think it was his body in shock that kept him alive... Then about 10 mins later he was dead

Yeah I saw this happen to a on 59. I was on my way to work and there was a bunch of traffic on the other lanes and when I got to where the stuff was they ahd the body kinda covered up and his legs were stickin out the side and there were no wrecked cars... so he must ahve ran out in traffic and got smashed...

Re: Scary Wreck on 288 and Beltway 8

If I'm riding at night (weekend), I try to be back home around midnight to avoid most of the drunks on the road after the Clubs close.

I avoid riding at night in general. Which has been real easy at track days. :cool:
