Bad News - Local Jeeper Killed

This accident occurred a couple days ago in Northern Illinois

A local Wrangler owner was killed. I heard he had planned a trip this summer to Jeep Jamboree in Colorado.

Thats really sad. Not too far from here.

I have to ask though. How the hell does hitting two jeeps cause a school bus to flip over? I'm confused. WTF happened?

That's sad. Glad all the kids were okay, and RIP to the wrangler driver. Sounded like a good guy.

I live in Chicago where unfortunately the death toll is higher than Afghanistan. I have learned that you should never let petty differences or unnecessary drama become a obstacle preventing you from letting those you care about that you love them. You may never get another chance to share that with them. My heart goes out to the family of that fellow Jeeper.
