I just drove by this, car wrapped around a pole or tree...i was focused on the car. Very disturbing

It might have been due to the lack of lane markings, the road in that area has been repaved and there are no lane lines, it is chaotic. It has been like that for over a week. How can they be so inefficient, i wonder how many lawsuis will be lodged because of it.

Bless this sweet boy's soul and may he journey with us and show himself to us when we need his love.

I work in the building near where it happened. I was told 2 cars were racing. This one hit the pole and the other car fled the scene. The lane markings are fine, its just a curvey area people go through too fast.

I saw the car and the body at the scene. I'm sorry he died, but thankful he didn't kill innocent drivers or pedestrians with his insane speed racing (surprising since he was in his 30s).
