    EDIT 09/26/05 RIP Nick Antico.:(

    I received a call today from my brother today. My cousin was in a really bad accident. He was at work. He works for the DOT and an SUV crashed into the work site hitting 3-4 workers and drove away. My cousin was inflicted with the worse injuries of everyone involved and is in Intensive Care in critical condition. I really don't want to get into the details of the injuries but it doesnt look very good. I was at the hospital all day with family and I'm very drained. :(

    My thoughts and best wishes are with you and your family-in particular to the speedy/full recovery of your cousin.
  10. Thats sickening. I cannot put into words how much that distresses me, that a human could do that to another, and just leave. Unbelievable.

    Be sure that you and your family, especially your cousin, are in my thoughts and prayers Nino.

    I wish for the best for your cousin. I wish the worst for the SUV driver.
  20. My prayers are with you and your cousin, Nino.

    I always watch out for construction workers for this reason. Stuff like that can happen so quick.
