This week Rob is in St Louis for business. St Louis is about a three and a half hour drive from here. He was going to leave on Sunday afternoon so he could get a good night's sleep before his early Monday meeting. Because it was super bowl Sunday and a lot of people on the road may have been drinking, I convinced him to leave early. He left about noon.
About 2 the call came, but this time it was Rob calling. There was a multi vehicle accident on the highway and he was in the middle of it. I stayed on the line as he described the semi trucks scattered all over the highway around him. He was able to maneuver around the worst of it and neither he nor the car received a scratch. Many were not so fortunate. There was one fatality, eleven injured and two were airlifted to hospitals.
