    Was there no report of the Corvette being in the ditch on the Robert Angus Drive? When I went past the scene they were trying to pull it out with another car holding up three lanes of traffic. There was no tow truck and no one directing traffic. (I know that speeding can't be proved but the car shouldn't have been moved until the police arrived.)
