    IF IT IS BACKED UP THAT FAR, TAKE 138 EAST ALL THE WAY AROUND TO BEAR VALLEY.

    I didn't see anything about the smashed CHP car halfway down the pass around 2:30-3:00 right where all the traffic was beginning to pile up going south. It looked like it got tagged pretty good and there were a ton of cops walking around.

    138 had similar problems the same day when a bus traveling 60mph hit a lady sitting in her broken down car. Sent the car 300' down the road and by the time it had stopped it was already engulfed in flames. When it rains it pours. Assuming the side roads are clear you can bypass the 15 and still make pretty good time. Lots of those desert roads have 65 mph limits.
