    $10 says Corvette tried crossing Rt4 in front of oncoming traffic but lost traction… and the Tacoma has no where to go but into the Vette.

      You are wrong. The vet was traveling north lost control in the right one and flow across into south bound traffic right in front of me.

    Now, That’s a lot of plastic to clean up!

    How did the Corvette end up on the other end of (before) the debris field?

      The vet was traveling north bound in the right lane and lost control darted across into south bound traffic into a black truck and into the white Tacoma truck. The vet was speeding like normal and the ground was wet.
