    In our neck o' the woods, two brothers were involved in a head-on collision that killed the wife of the younger brother.

    We pulled that off the state wire and ran it at our shop. Absolutely bizarre.

    The act of pulling it off the wire wasn't bizarre. The act of the brothers in the head-on collision was.
