  1. Whether or not he was wearing a seat belt is irrelevant and in my opinion insensitive (to put it mild) at a time when a family is mourning the loss of a loved one

  2. They dont really need an investigation. There is FOUR (4) cameras at this intersection. That is our tax dollar at work!! Use it

  3. I cant believe some of your comments. “Let us know when the street is opened” and worrying about tax dollars? Someone died here and your worrying about stupid stuff like that.


  4. Blue Shirt, they’re not video cameras, they’re thermal sensors that change the light when you pull up to it. They dont record anything…..

  5. #5 we still need to drive around dont we ?

    #6 thats his point once you spend the money sprend it properly
    people go over 70mph on that street all the time its crazy !

  6. #7
    Yes you still need to drive but there is something called respect. And usually you respect the loss of someone by giving condolences, not by going “Let us know when the road is open”. Just pure lack of respect. Atleast put a RIP somewhere in there.

  7. When I drive past an accident I always say GOD BLESS that person, but if it’s not my family or friends what more should I do really!…. Stop rubbernecking, get moving and clear the scene so others can get where they’re going to begin with….

  8. The cameras are not police cameras and they dont monitor them. They are traffic cameras monitored by the county road dept..for traffic reasons

  9. I hope his family will cope with this loss. It must be terrible to suddenly hear this shocking news, and lose one’s family.


  10. to everyone there are NO CAMERAS at this intersection, those things that look like carmera’s are sensor to change the light. I think they should put camera’s at this intersection way to many accidents, also they should put camera’s at the intersection of New Hampshire and Route 70, another bad intersection, and to the family that lost this person may you find peace, RIP

  11. i cant believe people are worried about the road reopening. the police need to do their job without extra accidents occuring. have some compassion for other people beside yourselves.i have member of my family that are in law enforcement, and they need to be safe doing their job

  12. OK I’ll try again Quote “Please let us know when the street is reopened.”
    totally insensitive ,someone died and all you are worried about is when the street will be reopened

  13. I was on site, and actually tried to help this man unlike all you sad, selfish people who are worried about taxes, or getting to work on time. Maybe had u experienced the faucet of blood pouring out of this mans face would change your thoughts and values!!

  14. D, I didnt know the man…or atleast I hope I didnt since no name has been released, but thank you for working hard and doing what you do to try and save him. These selfish individuals will eventually have karma….and it comes hard to some.

  15. Look and read carefully #11 post from an actual volunteer fireman!! These are cameras and although not belong the the local police they are EASILY obtainable by them and WILL be reviewed for evidence! Whether you BELIEVE it or NOT, it is a FACT that it is the LAW that ALL occupants wear seat belts and PROVEM that they DO SAVE LIVES!!! That being said, I am TRULY sadden by any life cut short and cannot even begin to voice my true
    sympathy for the poor family!!!

  16. i know his wife wow wat a sad story she is great lady and trust me she works in a famouse plac e were alot of jewish people go i hope to c u all at the funrel

  17. He was a good man and my friend. He was the type of guy if you asked him to help you with something he would just say, “When do you want to do it”. No excuses. He always made time to help his friends.
    I don’t really know what happen in that intersection, all I know he’s dead and I miss him. I pray for his wife and daughter.
    ps. Dude, I’am sorry if sometimes I took you granted.

  18. NO ONE KNOWS WHAT HAPPENED THAT DAY BUT TWO PEOPLE GETTING INTO A CAR ACCIDENT AND ONE PERSON DYING…. I NO THAT ENTIRE FAMILY both the wife and daughter are a mess. So for people to be worrying about the road being open or not and talking about carmas and tax money worries me. Take a step back and think about if it was your family or wife husband girlfriend or boyfriend. Her last memory of her husband is seeing him get into a car accident that killed him and I dont wish that on anyone!
