Doesn't look like much to speculate on CG. He fell asleep and wrecked; a pretty complete story.

Hmm

Does this mean a new political correctness officer has annointed himself? No speculation here but why would "BA pending" be included in the story if there isn"t something to speculate? People need to get a life and quit trying to control everyone else. Would be a far better place!

Yes it is

Now as for the crash it is very sad. Unfortunately, we all are appointed a time we just choose to not think it's our turn. Wishing comfort and solace for the families.
