    We were leaving the park about 15 mins after the accident happen, traffic was only backed up to the gate. Was told we would have to either turn around and back track to an area were they would guide us out through an old logging road
    or wait a minn. of 2 hrs. Glad we didn’t wait. As we were leaving got on internet to see if their was any news about it and found out their was also a fatal car accident by were we live in Kirkland. Was really a bad day for accidents.
