    Man, that is horrible. At least it was, presumably, quick. You have to wonder what could possess someone to do that. I suspect it was, to an extent, premeditated. I would guess the two knew each other.

    <Edit>Obviously, they knew each other. I missed the "their Mercedes" part of the story.</Edit>

    This is all because of George Bush’s policies and the iraq war, as clearly shown by the name of the road, and being in GWB’s home state.


    :D

    couldn’t resist.

    Yeah, I work a few blocks south of there (North of Campbell&75). As shocked as I am, I am a bit apprehensive about who it was. I am afraid it might be someone known locally that will affect even more people.

    I mean quick for her... I'm not too bothered by his suffering - assuming he was conscious - since he did the throwing....

    This is certainly a horrendous unspeakable crime. The man took the cowards way out. It sounds as though he may have suffered. I pray that the women never knew what happened to her. My prayers go out to her family and friends. I also pray for the man's family, it must be devastating for them also. :(

    That is such a horrible crime, but to throw someone off an overpass where you could potentially hurt others is even worse.

    If she had been throw 0.05 of a second later she would have landed on the windshield of the oncoming car and most probably killed the driver and passenger.

    wrong bush. . . i live in the area. . . the road is named after george bush (the first one) not george W bush.

    it was pretty shocking and tragic on the news here. but how horrible would that be to be driving along and have someone apparently fall out of the air and hit your car?!
