it looked bad. Did the man in the black Porsche make it?????
No, he didn’t.
Very sorry to hear this news but we passed the crash and it did not look good. We were hoping for a better outcome.
The man in the Porsche passed me on the freeway 1-2 minutes before the crash. So very sad to hear he died.
Yes. My neighbor said the same thing. She was still shaking when we talked. We were on the road and got your flash alert which kept us out of the traffic but we were very sorry to hear someone lost his life in this.
Horrible. So sorry for this man and his family.
