For jughandle lefts, but you can't really do that when you put the road right next to the drink.

Where did it say anything about a left turn?

but it does say that all lanes of Soldiers Field Road were closed, which wouldn't be necessary if this were a right-turn crash.

I see your point.
It could have been a right turn and debris spread as far as the opposite lanes (or that's where one of the cars ended up), but it might be more likely to have been a left turn.

Hope they had a lovely date night just before this happened.
