  1. I saw it happen.

    I was coming home on the late activity bus. Leaves RMHS at 6PM. So the bus dropped me off at Tanglewood and I began walking towards my home. It’s about a block, not very long. There are two Tanglewood sings in between this block. I was turning right when I heard a loud noise.

    First I briefly saw a black car pass by and then a body tumble. The body laid there not moving. At first I couldn’t make out whether it was a car accident or someone dumped a body. I stood in shock. Didn’t know what to do. Like, a big WTF moment. About 4-8 seconds later a light brownish tan van impacted the woman. The van stopped and the two occupants (one middle aged man, and one middle aged woman) stepped out and they were surprised… The woman (the one that got impacted) tried to stand up but the couple were trying to make her stay..the man called 911. The black car (that I assume either ran over or impacted the victim) was stopped the whole time… About 3 to 5 minutes after the whole ordeal a cop car came.

    Certainly an interesting end to my day.. was kinda really unexpected…
