Witness: "Oh God, it's Just Horrible"

Description from Linda Dixon at 2nd and Nicholson Streets NE:

Dixon rushed out of her home when she head all the sirens. Around 5:30 she saw a man on a stretcher pulled out of the wreck and laid on the ground. A white sheet was pulled over him. Two hours later, the body was still laying there. At 7:25, a black van of the office of the medical examiner arrived. Dixon and others in the crowd gasped. By then the white sheet was stained with blood.

"Oh God, it's just horrible," she said. "I feel so terrible because you just know there's somebody waiting for him to come home. He'll never get there."
