    Sad but I am curious why when the newly retired Springfied fire chief was busted a few days ago for DUI. why wasnt he booked at the jail. I bet had it been me, I’d have been booked.
    Looks like the buddy system at its best

    So, I make that turn every single day going home. The only way he could have been turning is if he had the (protected) green light. She had to have been crossing against the light or outside of the crosswalk. It was tragic, but was he really at fault?

      If the car was heading West on 18th – if he turned North onto Chambers, it would have been a right turn.
