@Maggie89:  I witnessed something similar. A pair of shoes poking out from underneath a tarp. The man wearing them was dead. I’ll never forget that. 

I hope you are able to find peace with these images, and I’m so sorry you had to see it. Thank you for passing along the important message of treasuring our families.

@Maggie89:  Aw, that’s terrible.  

Fiance has witnessed some deadly car accidents which I won’t discuss on here because it’s pretty morbid.  

ETA: I’ll never forget the time I witnessed paramedics trying revive a young teenager who was pulled from a creek after his accident.  Ugh.  So sad..

This is so sad. I live near KC and drive I-35 all the time. Definitely praying for the victim’s family and friends.

Unfortunately witnessing something like that will be on your mind and in your heart for a while. You’re right we should never take loved ones for granted and I pray for my husband to come home safely everyday from work.

I pray that God will bring comfort to the family of the victim and you as well.

I’m really sorry you had to see that and I’m sorry it happened.  ๐Ÿ™

Not long ago, there was an accident on the highway (401) near where I live (I had missed it by a few minutes, thankfully) and it made me feel the same way.  A family had been driving in the collector lanes and a car decided at the last minute to move over from the express to the collectors, over the solid line.  The driver making the illegal change cut off the vehicle with the family and as the father driving swerved his truck to avoid her car, he lost control and ended up rolling – eleven times – OVER the median, into the express lanes.  He was killed, his wife was facing possible amutation of her legs, and their 3 very young children in the backseat all survived.

Since then, I have thought of that family every time I pass that section of the highway, and every time I pass from the collector lanes to the express (and vice versa).  I hope you can find a way to let the images fade from your mind, but not the lesson to be careful and hold your loved ones close.

My mum still has nightmares over a motorbike accident which happened 25 yers ago. She witnessed everything and had to testify. Let me say he was wearing a helmet but it made absolutely no difference in this circumstance.

Having witnessed similar accidents myself I can honestly say that this is the kind of thing that really sticks with you. These kind of things always cause me to hug my family close and say a prayer for those involved. My heart goes out to you for having to witness something like this and also to the family and friends of the victim. I’ll keep both you and the family in my prayers.
