  1. Bay Area roads are horrible. Combine that with insane drivers who take out their rage on others, and you have a recipe for disaster. CHP is usually nowhere to be found.

    I am so glad I left CA. That state is toxic.

  2. The only thing that is horrible about this crash is that so many of these losers survived.
    But praise Jesus for at least one less dope on our roads.
