Accidental Halt

leave a comment »

On 75 north near McKinney just after lunch, just one exit shy of where we’d be turning to get Jenny back in time for her 3:00 starting time for work today, the traffic came to a complete stop, all lanes. When a helicopter landed just ahead of us after we’d been sitting for maybe 5 minutes, I ventured out to see if anything could be seen. We were close enough to where traffic was stopped to guess that we’d probably been no more than 3-5 minutes down the road when the accident had occurred.

I took several distant snapshots, but hurried back to our car upon seeing a stretcher being readied for lifting to the helicopter, correctly figuring that once the helicopter lifted off, the traffic would be moving again.
