Anyone see the brilliant person who went over the side of the 210? I don't get one car accidents, either.
Maybe he got a flat and lost control.Happens alot to inexperienced drivers

Or maybe some lane-weaving freak cut him off and he overcorrected. The freak went on his merry way, and the other guy ended up in a one-car wreck. There are lots of triggers to cause vehicular loss-of-control... like clnconcpts says, happens more to inexperienced drivers...

Bill Keene called that 'gawkers' block.' I find it absolutely morbid and disgusting, especially when emergency personnel are on the scene and obviously in control. Years ago I was traveling south on the 110, right around Dodger Stadium and the guy in front of me was SCREAMING at the gawker ahead of him, berating him because traffic had slowed to a crawl because of the 'lead' gawker.

One of my men said all. He said he has nothing going on in his life worth talking about. He felt that if he studied the accident scene he might have something to chat about the next day at work.

How morbid. Tell him to watch the news or go to a public place. There are lpots of places to people watch and that will give him plenty to talk about.

It's human nature to be curious. I don't think we have a monopoly on this.

There's a difference between curiosity and studying for water cooler conversation.
