  • When will people learn

    So you have a 50 + year old person trying to run (not drive) across 290.
    Well…….. Guessing either somebodywas chasing him for what we don’t know? he may have been a little tipsy? Maybe just maybe he had absolutely no common sense about trying to cross a expressway where you get to go as fast as you can. Either way I hope he checked out quick, terrible way to go out.

    Some people get wiser with age and some get stupider with age. It took him 54 years to get up enough stupid to walk across a high speed expressway. Or not really across, maybe half-way across.

      Maybe ppl really need to think before they would say anything. U don’t even know the man but u sitting here calling him stupid. Not one time did u think that the man have a family thats hurting cause of things like this then u sit and u say harsh words like that. U don’t never judge a book by its cover. U never know that could’ve been u or one of ur family member. So what he was 54 it does not matter he could’ve had problems or anything and u have the nerves to sit and say he stupid. So if that was someone in ur family would u sit and let someone call him/she stupid. Ppl nowadays and they talk bout a dead man hell wake up it couldve been ur stupid self
