RIP "This may seem a lonesome place to leave a man, but he is not alone, because many of his kind rest here with him."
I55 is 8 lanes at this location, extremely busy and people drive stupid fast because it's about 2-3 miles of straight road where this happened. It's VERY dangerous to even try to make a stop in that area.
