BlueJeans & I had a safe and unevenful trip from SoCal to Tucson today, Saturday, 23 Aug. We are at our daughter's. There was a fair amount of traffic, lots of Trucks, no stopages of the Interstate until we got to Tucson. East bound lane was routed off I-10 to frontage road, but did not stop the flow except at traffic lights
, the whole length of the city proper, due to construction I believe (?). North of Tucson by Marana on the West bound lane the traffic was blocked for 10 miles or more, due to a very bad accident. Traffic was also route to frontage road but at that area the road is only two lane, four lanes were we were routed. The accident was a Simi with two trailers and a large SUV. The trailers were wrapped around a good sized tree on the median between the interstate and the frontage road, the SUV was in the middle of the west bound lanes (3 or 4 lanes at this area) now pointing east. It was beat all to pieces, the lanes were littered with junk for a half mile it seemed. By time we got there, the police were investagating and amblances were gone. Tow trucks were waiting down the lanes for the police to finish we assumed. It was a mess. We Thanked our God for allowing us to have a safe trip.
for so many safe journeys!
We plan on staying a few days then driving back home. Read the story below, worse than we saw.
