Two tragic accidents in less than four days. Some drivers have gone crazy in San Jose, I say.
First one was on Monday 7/23/2007 8:20 PM, when a 19-yr old Erik Satterstrom rammed his Nissan 350Z at 80 MPH on a 35 MPH road in Almaden area of San Jose killing innocent pedestrians Inder Paul Batra, 65, Physics professor and his wife Uma Batra, 57, Dietician and then crashing into trees causing the car to burst in flames and killing himself along with his passenger Max Harding, 18.
Second one on Thursday 7/26/2007 7:40 AM, on I-280 South in San Jose, where a 68-year-old Guadalupe Gomez of Redwood City rammed his car at more than 100 MPH in another car, injuring Jedidiah Lee Dooley, 27, of Los Gatos. And then hit another car who was being driven by a 39-year-old father of five daughters from San Jose - Troy Edwin Johnson. The latter burst into fire killing the driver on the scene. Gomez is facing manslaughter charges for his reckless driving spree.
It is just too sad to see people are speeding without caring about others and taking innocent lives. Innocent people who are loved by their loved ones and will sorely be missed. What a price to pay for the innocents and their loved ones! May their souls rest in peace.
To all who drive out there: Think twice before speeding and realize, you might make others suffer along with yourself for a fun that lasts few seconds.
