Sunday night Duke and I saw the Cedar Walton Trio at Yoshi’s. It was a wonderful show.
On the way home the traffic on the 880 freeway came to a complete stop. After we had been waiting a while Duke pointed out that there was no one behind us on the freeway. 880 is 6 lanes wide at that point and there wasn’t a single headlight behind us. It is very weird to be the last person on the freeway.
We saw 4 or 5 ambulances going the other way and then saw a life flight helicopter take off a ways up the road. When we finally got up to the accident you could see a smashed car and a van on its side. There was an article about the accident in the paper this morning. Apparently the accident started on the other side of the freeway, the car went airborne on to our side of the freeway and then hit a van full of people. A four year old little girl was ejected and killed. So very sad.
