I was driving on 128 last night and saw a car about ten car lengths ahead of me make a hard right doing about 65 right off the road!! I pulled over and called 911, said where I was, what had happened, and to look for me on the side of the road because you sure weren't going to find the car (very far off the road).
As soon as I hung up I walked over to where the car had gone off the road and heard some noise. I ask if everyone's ok and I hear a muffled guys voice say yeah. I wait and he gets out of the car and walks through the brush up to me and says "my wife is going to kill me". I ask if there is anyone else in the car and he says no. I asked if his tire blew out or what, and he says no. Now he did stumble up to me a little so I am already suspicious but when he asks me if I think he can still get out of this I realize he is drunk for sure. He then says thank you and walks up the highway toward the next exit. Or should I say stumbeled up the highway? I wait for the cops, firetrucks, and ambulances to show up and tell them what happened. They get a discription from me and one of the cops (on a motorcyle) goes after him. I hear from one of the other cops that they found him and I left shortly after that.
I just couldn't help thinking if I had been a little closer and on my bike instead of my car I would have been creamed by this drunk asshole!! I just can't stand people who drink and drive!! I don't care if they kill themselves, but if you take out a family of four or worse, me
then at the very least you deserve to never drive again! Anyway, that's my excitement for the week, ride safe and watch out for everyone!!
