What was the worst accident ever witnessed not seeing

In my 32 yrs. out there the worst accident I ever witnessed was 2 4 wheelers racing down I-71s just outside louisville ky. and one of the 4 wheelers sped beside me on the shoulder of the road not knowing a big truck was broke down on that shoulder and before he realized what was on that shoulder he could,nt slow down enough before he went under the back of the trailer decapitateing both the driver and passenger I immediately pulled up behind this and got out with some rags and covered the heads before calling for assistance on the CB.This was gruesome and took me back when I was in the service being transported by ship to Nam and from ship to heliwhopper(sorry that is my slang for Heli copter) when one of the ships crew members was on the pad and got to close to one of the blades in revolving and was decapitated.This was before they made it a law that all trailers will have that bar installed on the rear of trailers.Now remember I said witnessed were you actually have to stay on the scene and describe to officers what you saw?

Oh yea another one I witnessed was when I was delivering a load of caskets out of Bates Ville Indiana to there refinishing plant in Cambells In. I was driving thru one of there residential neighbor hoods going may be 32 mph when another big truck got on the CB and yelled at me to speed it up when I refused to do it this driver in his infomus wisdom passed me on a double yellow line on the road and in a school zone at worst when going thru a school zone everybody knows that speed limit drops to 20 so as to protect those children from getting on or off that bus.When this idiot went around me he ran over one these children and killed this child.Once again I pulled off the side of this road and cried till the police arrived and me and the bus driver who also was in tears told the officer exactly what we saw.As for the driver he also was in tears.I kept calling the police in Campellesville to see what did to the driver and they told me he would be convited of vehicular homicide and loose his CDL.Just goes to show you better late than never.
