I was caught up in the resulting gridlock of this accident this morning:

Took me an extra hour to get to work. Small price to pay considering 7 people died, 2 are critical and 10 are "walking wounded" :eek:

No it takes the police 10 hours to "Investigate".

I was on that run to the airport a couple of years ago.
The hotel does a bed'n'park thing. If you stay the night, they will take you to the airport and you can leave your car parked at the hotel.
They employ something like 10 drivers to do the run, so you can imagine how busy it is.
