Tim Olk submitted the following:

Two cars passed me doing well over 100 mph, one on my left and the other on the right at the Edens/Kennedy split. As they made the sharp turn I saw both lost control. ¬†All I saw was smoke and car parts flying. Got on 9-1-1 and said there were 2 cars on fire and the need for a squad for a possible pin-in, 2 ambos and that I was searching for the occupants. Both cars were on fire . The upside down Caddy was on fire and it looked like both drivers were ejected. The guy was walking and the girl had to be pulled away from the car . The other driver asked me if everything was ok then walked away but later was found up the Edens with some other cars that had stopped. I hate the Kennedy at night after 2am, it’s a raceway.
