or distracted by kids, didn't

or distracted by kids, didn't see the light change, drunk (or not drunk) ran the red light, car was rear ended & pushed into traffic (it was a three car accident), lots of possibilities. Let's wait for the full story JohnBoy. Thanks for fixing that little glitch Kim. baroness is a stickler for details. I am too, but you had it fixed before I read the story. Good catch.
