Worst PDX Mayor Ever

Totally senseless tragedy. Convertible..nice day..going way too fast. Probably distracted, and now a beautiful young woman dies a horrific death for no reason.

pb sir

Broad daylight... apparently the driver just couldn't see that big truck and trailer ahead of him... for some reason...
