Below is the scene of a multiple-car accident and officer-involved shooting at Goodman Road and Interstate Blvd. in Horn Lake.

When I worked in Horn Lake, I would turn left from Goodman onto south-bound Interstate Blvd. around 7:55-8:00 in the morning. I’m glad to see my former co-workers are working from home and were therefore not tied up in this. Apparently the cement truck driver crashed on purpose and yelled something about wanting to kill people.

I got to watch an episode of AEW (All Elite Wrestling, a new U.S.-based promotion) from start to finish last night, and quite honestly it was much better than the episode of WWE Monday Night RAW I watched two days earlier.
