Cool Wild one today.....

I was on I90 heading east about 5 miles east of 47...

Saw a young couple driving crazy in a ford focus. They passed me up while I was moving at a good clip and my wife was with me and said they were smoking a bowl. I didn't think too much of it until traffic started to build up a little and the driver was still doing all these moves to try to pass people very erratically and riding on their asses (fast and furious action!). Now.. I've seen my share of Fak ups before but this one takes the cake. If you are not familiar with the area the road is a two lane highway. In this particular area they must be doing some road work to the center shoulder because they have construction barrels up. Well, this assclown (in front of me about 5 cars at this point) is in the right lane, does a super sharp cut to go into the left lane from the right lane and must of had his car start to lose it a little, he ends up tagging one of the construction barrels... at this point I think this is where he over reacted or something... next thing to happen is the car goes completely sideways in the center shoulder between the cement wall and barrels - car facing across both lanes (everyone at this point in front of starts to slow down big time) So the car drifts across both lanes of traffic now... luckily not hitting any other vehicles. At this point it's hard to tell if the driver had any clue on what to do but he must of reacted again because next the car swerves hard to the left(driver side) and freaking ROLLS over! (passenger side first) Car does one complete roll over... goes into the ditch and was back on all fours again. Insane!

I didn't stop to see what happened to them because there were already about 5 cars stopped and people running over to check on them.

If anyone hears or knows anything about this I'd like to know if they were both ok (or any cops on the board). The exact intersection by looking on a map must of been right at the I90 and Randall RD exit.

Is it wrong for me to hope everyone except the passengers of that car is okay?

If they are driving dangerously, AND getting high while doing so, then I really have no sympathy for them. Risking the lives of other people on the road next to them is no joke.

I'm sorry about my driving but I'm fine. Kidding. I have seen some real wierd ones. Last week I watched a nissan pathfinder pull out in front of a civic doing 45. Both were okay but the dumb broad in the pathfinder was more worried about the kids on the school buses pulling out to head home because she was a teacher. The poor girl in the civic was crying her eyes out at first cuz she thought it was her fault and she was already on a ticket. On wensday some kid lost his car on I-55 and slammed into a light pole and it came to rest on top of his car. Some poeple just never learn to drive.

That's nice and all, but that doesn't justify being a danger to innocent people around you. Maybe I'm naive, but it shouldn't take a major accident to knock sense into a person.

I was kind of thinking the same thing at the time. Most people would be driving cautious and slow after puff'n not all crazy.

I've been looking on the net for any police blotters that might have reported this but didn't find anything yet. It may end up here www.nwherald.com

The dude messed up big time... it was his fault 100% and the dumbass was lucky not to hit anyone elses car. These are the type of morons that DO get innocent people killed. I do hope nobody was hurt and his girlfriend was in the car going for the ride of her life. I hope she doesn't hop back in this dudes car again after that ride.

Has anyone here been in a car that has rolled over?
