remarkable how many troopers are on scene after the fact,, they should have been out there at that junction, visible to all drivers, who then wouldn't be jerking around trying to prove they can handle desperate last minute lane changes,, which they are woefully incapable of... guess this fool learned the hard way.. if he survives, hopefully he will drive mre cautiously in the future??? sorry to all who re put out by one fools actions....
