I hear what you're saying Jon. And because Jay leaves every morning in the dark, he is aware. But I know what you mean. Is Serendipity the movie with Gwenyth Paltrow? The one where catching a train or not literally changed her life?

Nope, Jon Cusack and Kate Beckinsale. Trust me - it's a great movie! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0240890/

I'm confused. The article above says "Svetlana Boyette was a passenger of a motorcycle that was heading southbound on Route 206 when it struck a vehicle making a left turn out of the 7-Eleven parking lot". But the article at http://longvalley.patch.com/articles/one-dead-two-injured-in-mount-olive-crash says: "The motorcycle was pulling out of the 7-11 convenience store, attempting to turn left onto the roadway and struck a Toyota Camry driving southbound on Route 206" These two statements of the facts are exact opposites. So which one is right?

Hi Jon, Thanks so much for the comment and being part of the conversation relating to this tragedy. The article here is the accurate version. There was a communication error between myself and the Mt. Olive Police Department regarding the original version. We're going to amend that article to reflect the correct information, and thanks for bringing it to our attention.
