  1. Truth is, if you look at the line and tracks of exactly how he passed through the parking lot, you can see that if he was 2 inches to the right or to the left he could have crashed into a whole row of cars in the lot or crashed into other things and people. It’s crazy how it was meant to be in such a way, for him to plow straight down that exact angle of a diagonal and how no one else was destined to be in part of this crash.

  2. Mr Marino, may gd send you a complete recovery. I’m sorry for the pain you must be going through.

  3. This is why people should be retested at 65 years old !!!!!!!! It’s not called age discrimination it’s called safety of yourself and others
