disturbing highway accident (graphic) (pic)

Before you look below, be warned.....

It is pictures of a highway accident that occured a few days ago in the Netherlands. I cannot believe that such devestation resulted from one irresponsible truck driver.

Supposedly even seasoned Police officers had a difficult time when they showed up on the scene. I can't blame them. I do not know what I would do if I saw that in real life.

My condolences go out to everyone who suffered a loss as a result of this accident. God bless you all.


Do not look below unless you are prepared to see one of the most disturbing and upsetting highway accidents that I have ever witnessed.













This may not be suitable for children to see.












Last chance........................ Be warned

It teaches you to cherish the time with the ones you love. I'm going to go cuddle up with one from the fridge right now and let it know how much I enjoy its company.

I can see a few unbroken ones in there. At least the clean up crew will have a good time.
