3. We had bad weather the last 2 days, but the weather was clear when this happened.
All the snow, etc., we had Wednesday and Thursday was gone by Thursday afternoon. It was a bit below freezing this morning, but no precip.
That the pilot was able not to crash on a busy eight lane expressway close to where they finally crashed must have been a miracle. They ended up very close to a senior citizens' center but didn't hit a building or a car. Some of the staff from St. Ann's went out to try to rescue the passengers, and one was slightly burned pulling someone from the wreckage.
