We had a link several years ago where 4chan (I think it was) send pictures of a dead girl to her father after she died in a car accident.

We had some local firefighters or paramedics get canned for doing that. While I think it's tacky for passers-by to do it, it's just stupid for a "professional" to do it.

Rubbernecking is bad enough. Slowing down to take a picture of the dead should be one of those crimes with a mandatory minimum sentence.  Goddamn, folks, focus on what's in your lane, not what is on the other side of the road.

I remember my first time seeing a body on the road.  It was a crumpled Corrola with a sheet over the driver's side.  The family put a cross up and I drove by that cross for years and then it wasn't there anymore.

I've noticed a lot of backlash on Twitter (sorry!) when a local news outlet posts pictures of car crashes. I think they're starting to be more selective in their photos now.

Person walking on the interstate was hit by a semi-tractor early one morning.  I was the car that ended up first in line as the police stopped traffic.  I was literally 30 or so feet from the dead body lying in the inside shoulder.  Police told me not to get out of my car as there was "stuff" on the ground they didn't want disturbed.  After getting to stare at the dead body for about 20 minutes they finally started turning people around and getting them off the interstate to the frontage road.  Image is still very clear in my memory.

And yes, I did get a picture as well.  Morbid, I know.

Last week it took me an hour to get to work one morning (normally takes 20-30 min).

When I got to the scene of the incident causing the slowdown, it was for a disabled vehicle (no wreck, no EMT, no red or blue lights) in the opposite direction, on the other side of the concrete divider.

People were coming to an almost complete stop to look at a tow truck and a Camry.

Years ago, I was in traffic and got behind an accident which involved a motorcyclist going X miles per hour and a flatbed semi going X times 0 miles per hour.  The cyclist was tomato surprise across the back of the flatbed and the motorcycle was wedged under the trailer.  There was only one cop on the scene at the time.  All he could do was wave you around the accident.

On a lighter note, Monday, past the Goodfellow exit on eastbound I-70, I came across the following:  Three St. Louis County police cars and a motorist assist tow truck were on the right shoulder.  There was a cop with a lock whip trying to unlock the drivers side of the last patrol car.  On the passengers side, two cops were trying the proven method of pulling the door away from the frame to get to the lock on the passenger door.

Wished I had a dash cam for that one.

When kids would get killed in a wreck in High School, the cops would take the bloody, mangled car and park it on the lawn in front of the school for a week as a reminder that life can end quickly if you do stupid shait.

Nowadays, we shelter people so much from reality, that we have flat earthers, truthers, birthers, and trumps. Hoemopathic, homeschoolers who won't vaccinate their crotchlings.
And we all pay for that ignorance.

There is a great online PSA where some dickbag starts shooting pictures for social media after coming upon a pedestrian vs. car accident.

The stinger at the end is he texts his mom that "some a-hole" got killed and he'll be late for dinner and the phone under the tarp buzzes.

Seriously people I get that we are all internet nihilists becauses "Nothing matters, lawl" but a corpse used to be a person and there is a good chance that those people have loved ones who are grieving.

There was a website that showed pictures of car crashes and bodies in the early 2000's (don't remember the name of it or if it still exists). I had an employee in the warehouse I ran that would send me pictures from that along with the normal stuff he sent along. After opening the first one, I just started sending his Fwd's to spam. Never understood if he had a motive or if he was just clueless. He was aware I had lost my son a few years earlier in a car wreck. I just chalked it down to some people just don't think.

My 25 year old son became a firefighter last year, and is in training to become a paramedic. I have to admit, I warned him to never, ever do anything like this.  He almost seemed offended that I would say that to him, but I felt that, as his mother, I would be remiss if I didn't say anything.

That hasn't stopped him from talking about really gross stuff at the dinner table, though. I have to remind him that describing in graphic detail how someone's head was smeared across the hood of their car tends to put people off their meatloaf.

It also doesn't sound right. No I don't mean it's wrong but the story smells of baloney. Taking pictures of an accident seem is normal procedure including the gore. It helps investigate the scene later and provide evidence if a criminal charges are needed.

What really happened was they got canned probably for sharing them improperly. I say improperly because it is also normal procedure for them to share.

That gory detail stuff is called 'sliming' and totally unnecessary.  One can debrief about a call or incident without the gory details.....now I'm hunger for meatloaf

Best gore and crazy shiat show the dead and dying. Much of their content is filmed in Asian and South American countries where life has very little value. In many of the Asian clips there will be a girl in agony lying on the road and passerby's will not even glance down as they carry on with their day. And Brazil? There's much joy in the torture and murder of others there. I have long ago crossed off that place as a vacation destination.

Used to work in a place that had contests - find the sickest weirdest crap and send it to colleagues, see who could make the others go erp bleagh.  They made it clear when I started though that while bestiality, weird regular pron, random sick stuff was ok - actual dead bodies were right the fark out.  At least we had SOME standards I suppose

CSB time.

I once witnessed an accident on a bridge where a truck had changed lanes and attempted to violate the Pauli Exclusion Principle with a tiny Honda.

The Honda ended up inverted and spinning, and the truck stopped and leaked half its diesel fuel into the James River (thus improving the water quality of the James River).

But no one was hurt, except for a tiny cut on the forehead of the Honda driver, presumably from airborne broken glass. Someone on the other span of the bridge stopped and yelled, "Hey, do you need an ambulance?"

Car and truck driver were both, "No." (I hung around because I was a witness; also the accident kind of blocked the entire span.)

Little while later, while the drivers involved were chatting (neither of them was even angry), the cops showed up and took statements. We hear this screeeeeeeeeeechTHUNK from the other span - some rubberneckers had rear-ended the car in front of them. When I looked, the driver was holding her head (which was, I believe, still attached, but injured).

Massive truck runs over and flips Honda: no injuries. Rubberneckers gawking at inverted Honda and fuel-leaking truck: ambulance.

A couple of years ago we had a semi hauling hay bales catch on fire in the middle of the interstate. We had to close one lane and funnel the traffic into the remaining lane. Between the restricted roadway and smoke from the fire obscuring visibility, it was a fairly dangerous situation. At one point, as I was attempting to slow down and direct traffic, I saw something fly out of a window and hit the pavement, coming to a stop smack in the middle of the open lane. It turned out to be a phone that some idiot had dropped while trying to take a picture of the fire. To make matters worse, they immediately stopped in the middle of the most dangerous part of the scene and started to get out to retrieve it. I had to completely stop traffic and go get her phone just to prevent her from getting herself or someone else killed over a broken cell phone. I had a very strong urge to cram her busted phone down her gullet, but I resisted the temptation.
