Roadside Memorial

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

This is the roadside memorial for Jada Williams, a 15-year old who died when the car she was a passenger in ran a stop sign, hit another car, and crashed into a tree. The images of the accident are horrific, but somehow hers was the only death.

Roadside memorials are, of course, a common thing. St. Louis is the only place I’ve noticed the routine use of stuffed animals though to remember the dead. I find the innocence of it more poignant than candles and flowers.
