50 Car Pile Up in California - June 11th 2009, 10:11 PM

So I get a call yesterday from my father telling me that my mom is okay but I should call her because there was an accident.

I call her, and ask her what happened and why she didn't call me. Turns out, on her way to work (there's a pass known as Cajon Pass) It's very long, very steep... and very dangerous.

Anyways due to severe fog Two semi-s crashed causing a massive chain reaction behind them. 50 cars were in the wreck, and some how my mother managed to get around them and pull safely off the freeway.
(Her coffee didn't even spill.. only my mom would be proud of her coffee lol)

here's a few links and a picture.


UPDATE: 50-car pileup closes Cajon Pass - San Bernardino County Sun

Wow.. That's horrible. I live in California as well. I'm pretty sure I'm not close to this place though.

Dayum. Glad to know your mom is okay.


Often I lie wide awake, thinking of things I could make.
But I donít seem to have the parts to build them.
I am so scared of what will kill me in the end, for I am not prepared.
I hope I will get the chance to be someone, to be human.

That's awful, I'm glad your mom is okay. I so would be proud for my coffee, as well.

I've seen worse. We had a 73-car pile-up in foggy weather here in Wisconsin not too long ago.

They were lucky it was only 50 cars.
That's the main freeway to get to Las Vegas from So-cal.. It could've been much worse.. But there was major luck going on that day.
