    It was a small green car with Texas plates,he had been refused entry into Canada,I was there seconds after it happened

      sad, although it does say “Suicide Attempt” so by the word attempt i’m assuming he is still alive ?

      • O’Neill

        I thought the same thing regarding the wording but the headline says he dies. Just poor wording in the article and clearly not enough information gathered.

        Well it did mention he hit a concrete pier, so unless a miracle happened I think it’s safe to say he’s dead.
