    Police do not need to release details of the crash. It’s a no brainer. Traffic through there any given afternoon at 4-6 pm is so heavy and cars are on top of each other by mili-seconds like cattle being led to the slaughter. One vehicle in front stops hard for a light or whatever and vehicles behind cant respond in time and it is a chain reaction crash! One Mississippi two Mississippi. Thats all it takes to get home safe.
