I feel terrible. I'm fooling around with some commentators and I see this. My neighbor is a nurse at Shock Trauma and they are the best in the world. I hope Tyler will be OK and my thoughts go out to his family. I grew up there and came through that intersection a million times. Let's all hope for the best.
