On August 26th 2009 a crash between a semi and a car occurred in the southbound lanes of I-35 between the University and Westown Parkway ramps. The police said that a passenger vehicle was stalled on the travel portion of I-35 when it was rear ended by the semi. The passenger vehicle driver was injured and taken to the hospital. The real question is why did the wreck happen? Was the semi driver paying attention? Did the passenger vehicle have his/her emergency blinkers on? Cars break down on the interstate all the time will you be watching for them?
Or will you be on a cell phone talking or texting?
In the past two days I've encounted no fewer than 10 drivers weaving, pulling out when they should yield, stopping when they should drive ahead, slowing for no apparent reason and in each case they were on cell phones either talking or texting.
