Stops Traffic two Hours In the Mexican State of Hillsboro Oregon
What is really bizarre about this is around 9.00 pm, before I read about the kids being hit, I had a disturbing fantasy of being at TV highway in the same area, where I was walking and in front of me a Mexican female with a stroller and three kids, walked out into the crosswalk, and were hit by a mexican male in a speeding car. They were all killed and I left before the mexican could kill me too.Telephatic? I bet the kids hit were mexican anchor babies.
