    witnessed Richard Chandlers body lying on outter lane of I 95 . I was horrified at site . My daughter and I driving to airport when I told her ” there is a body in the road pull out of this lane” I turned to see a horrific sight . I know that I should have counseling to help me with the sight far worse than the most graphic horror movie . The movies are not real…THIS WAS THE REMAINS OF A HUMANBEING after falling 30 feet and than being hit by a tractor trailor . To side of I95 off road , a man stood motionless in a business suit. Frozen to the spot he was standing . He may have seen Richard Chandler jump off onto I95 and than the truck hit him full force …..May God Bless this mans family…It will forever be in my mind the peices of a mans face strewn upon the road….
