“I’m not sure if it was because he was going so fast or being a reckless driver, but he drifted over into our lane, which ironically, the car that he impacted was two cars behind me, so I watched the entire accident at impact right in my rearview mirror as I continued to go down Covil Avenue at the Independence intersection,” the witness said.
