This is what we saw

KGW TV reports: "A Volkswagen Jetta with five passegers was going west on Highway 26 when it crossed the center lane for unknown reasons. It crashed nearly head-on into a Chevy pickup with two people inside around 3:45 p.m." And this is what a witness told us: "The pickup went up and over this red car. And then it just - t just flipped upside down! I just called it in!"

KGW: "Three female passengers in the Jetta were pronounced dead at the scene." I guess cars aren't meant to hold the weight of a 3/4 ton pickup. Those three girls - and you know they had to have been girls - must have been the unmoving things covered by coats.

KGW: "The male driver and a male passenger of the car were injured and taken to Legacy Emanuel Hospital. The male driver of the pickup and his female passenger received minor injuries." The female passenger must have been the one we saw lying in the road. I would guess the guy with silver in his temples kneeling by her side must have been the driver of the pickup.

15 or 20 cars earlier, that would have been us. And we wouldn't have ridden over the Jetta. Maybe better for those girls. Not so good for us.
