  • Hope their ok! There’s alot of people who aren’t looking before they can’t run to the center lane in the freeway to stop,and run to the other need to be in the cross walk.its not legal 1st off 2nd it’s so dangerous.

  • Um… Airport Road is in McKinleyville, not north of it…..

    Wow…..may the emergency responders, LEO, coroner all have abundant wisdom as they investigate the case. And RIP to the pedestrian and may his or her family be able to be reached quickly. Mighty sad thing to read about.

    This time of year after the first rains hit, the piece of shit outsiders in the mj culture come to trim or leave the grow field.

    Plenty of road kill on 299 too… fact, it would not be a surprise that a dead, decomposed body is somewhere down an embankment alongside a road…..

    Typically, in meth town mack, walkers in the dark at weird hours are smacked out, meth junkiee thieves.

    If the deceased was a good person, rip.

    If the deceased is a mother fucker, so long sucker!

        • Henchman Of Justice

          Ya, that is why an either/or style response was given.

          If the deceased was a good person, rip.

          If the deceased was a mother fucker, so long sucker.

          No need to stir shit.

        Do you need an Egg Mac Muffin from Mickey D’s with a spray of vinegar McGruff?

        Or, A Scooby Dooby Doo Sub Sandwich dipped in vinegar from Subway?
