Driving home tonight
Took a different route
Traffic slowing down
Almost to a stop

From a distance flashing lights
Slowly moving on
Getting closer to the lights
Fire trucks, ambulances's and police cars

Scattered along one side of the road
Firemen directing traffic
As I approached the wreckage
A red motor cycle lying on its side

Nearby the outline of two bodies
Blankets drapped over them from head to toe
I chocked with a horrible feeling inside
Tears rolled down my cheeks
As I began to pray

The day after I was married, we witnessed a motorbike accident while driving to my parents to get my stuff. I'll never forget the doll like appearance as the body flipped in the air and the leg twisted in such an odd way. First omen the marriage was in trouble. Wonderful write for this type of cxperience.
