Body Lands on Freeway Sign Following Car Accident.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A driver whose car rolled over several times on a Los Angeles freeway was thrown so far that his body landed on a road sign at least 20 feet above the ground.

The body of a 20-year-old man who cops say was driving recklessly ended up on freeway sign following a gruesome wreck in Los Angeles on Friday morning. “I’ve never seen anything like this or heard anything like this,” Edgar Figueroa of the California Highway Patrol told the Los Angeles Times. “It’s the first time.” John Adams, the second President of the United States, would be celebrating his 280th birthday if he were still alive — but his impact can still be observed in recent history. The lawyer and diplomat — who was also the country’s first vice president — was one of our most important founding fathers and helped establish many of the laws that built this nation. Her husband frequently sought her advice and her correspondence with him has served as one of the most important primary sources of the American Revolution. The body of the man, who was in his 20s and has not been named, was covered by authorities but stayed there for approximately three hours until the freeway could be closed to let firefighters remove it. In a letter, Adams wrote that he was “a mortal and irreconcilable enemy to monarchy,” but in the same letter he writes “these elections I hope will continue until the people shall be convinced, that fortune providence or chance, call it which you will, is better than election.” With the Residence Act of 1790, the government established a temporary capital in Philadelphia while the new federal city of Washington D.C. was constructed.

For most of his one term, Adams lived in Philadelphia, but starting on Nov. 1, 1800, while it was still being constructed, he became the first President to live in the White House. The two men died within hours of each other on July 4, 1826, 50 years after the original signing of the Declaration of Independence. “About one, afternoon, he said, ‘Thomas Jefferson survives,’ but the last word was indistinctly and imperfectly uttered. Congress authorized the Adams Memorial Foundation to raise funds and construct a memorial to the entire Adams family in 2001, but nothing has been planned or finalized. “The fact that there is no memorial in our nation’s capital dedicated to this remarkable leader and steadfast public servant is a glaring oversight that must be corrected,” Lynch said in 2014.
