I thought that I-40 was closed tonight due to construction. I was wrong. Traffic was already stopped because of one accident when another driver failed to brake and hit an SUV. That driver lost his life. Just like that. Thankfully, a person in the SUV who was taken to the hospital was being treated for non-critical injuries.
The Tennessean reports that police have not yet identified the man but say that he was in his mid-50s. I pray that those affected can find peace. I'm only guessing that he was being inattentive in his driving. And that inattentive driving sent someone to the hospital. But instead of a ticket for it, he lost his life. Tough price.
It's fleeting. And I hope that if I ever go in such an immediate way, that all of the folks who mean so much to me will know how I felt about them.
