Not so happy pavement markings

These are the pavement markings I mentioned on Monday, marking out where last week a Newton man drove over the double-yellow line and crashed into and killed a Chelsea man. This is looking west, with the eastbound lane to the left. Presumably, "POI" means point-of-impact. The path of fluid west and then into the westbound lane is, as I understand it, the path of the dead man's mini-van, post-collision.

Here's a picture looking the other direction, into the westbound path of the Newton driver. There don't appear to be any skid marks in front of the POI box. (I took these pictures on Tuesday.)
