  1. Hi Zak,
    Any chance we could use your video on our air (7News in Boston, MA) and courtesy you and/or OnSceneTV? Thank you!

  2. I’m trying to understand why the driver of the stalled vehicle remained in the car. It was inevitable another car would crash into it if the lights weren’t working.

      safest place for the driveris in his car period! getting out of car is zero chance of survival impact would be certain death at those speeds.
