    1230am out in the snow? Why?

    1. Mr. P says:

      When it snows throughout the night, I generally move my car back and forth across the street so plows can fully clear the street and so there’s little build-up on my car in the morning. He could of been doing the same thing and slipped into the snow bank . 12:30 really isn’t that late to some people, y’know?

        He also could have been on his way to or from work. Besides, what does it matter what time it was? It wasn’t his fault. It was a tragic accident
