I just found out that one of my buddy, Joe H who I served and personally knew him during my naval tour in Misawa, Japan recently passed away yesterday who was involved in a head on collision in San Diego last week in Mission Valley. Remarkably, he did survive the crash, but found out via facebook from his family that doctors were performing surgery and Joe caught pneumonia and the Docs could not save his life.
The story is here: http://www.sandiego6.com/news/local/...Friars/hzjGdN7icUqqKs-V200CJg.cspx (The video clip is graphic.)
This got me thinking. The driver who lost control of his truck, 70 years old, went across the medium and into on-coming traffic according to the article and struck his car at speeds 50 mph, roughly. My friend who told me said the 70 year old was driving drunk. He could have been drunk or not, so I am not speculating, but the article does not say this. I have read several past new articles where as more and more senior citizens are driving like maniacs and driving under the influence nowadays. I just wanted to let you know, always be safe, because anything can happen.
Rest In Peace, Sailor.
