Last night, at approximately 7:45pm, a car traveling north on Mid Rivers Mall Drive in St. Peters, Missouri, crashed into an intersection traffic light pole. Emergency response swiftly arrived at the scene. The driver was rescued from his vehicle and air evacuated to a nearby hospital. The driver suffered fatal injuries as a result. No other injuries were reported.

I happened to be just a few blocks away at the EDC Building, and had my camera with me. It was dark, so I had my ISO bumped way up. I didn't see the car until after we left the area, so I did not get a picture...but I dunno...I feel weird photographing things like this anyway. Especially when someone dies. :(

Rumors are that the driver was traveling near 70mph (the speed limit is 40), his car lifted, and then crashed into the traffic light post in the PNC Bank parking lot.

I like #4, but...

Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/1000 second ===> 0.001 second
Lens F-Number / F-Stop = 18/10 ===> ƒ/1.8
Exposure Program = aperture priority (3)
ISO Speed Ratings = 1600

...there's really no reason to shoot at 1/1000 sec.?

:pThat's what I get for grabbing my camera and shooting without changing my settings from earlier in the day. UGH. Thanks for looking!
