    One of the most ridiculous mornings I’ve seen for traffic in my life. Won’t see this type of thing again for ages… I hope.

    What caused the crash? There are a LOT of terrible drivers out there everyday seems like there is a crash somewhere

    If recent history is an indicator, the wreckage should be removed by sometime tomorrow afternoon.
