I couldn’t think of anything to write about so I thought I’d tell a story from that’s kinda crazy, fun and has a good life lesson.
Several years ago on a dark summer night, with clear sky’s and a half moon, I was running low on fuel and headed to the fuel shed to remedy the situation. I was accompanied by 2 volunteers who while hanging out at the station decided to tag along for lack of anything better to do. We fueled up without incident and headed back.
Now the trip back to the station involved a few winding back roads and then a 6 mile stretch at 55MPH on a fairly straight 2 lane road. As we entered the this stretch of road a small pickup truck merged into the lane a few hundred yards ahead of us.
We immediately discovered that the driver of the truck may have been under the influence of something, or possibly having a medical emergency, either way something wasn’t right. We realized this fairly quickly because the dude started driving in the left lane, the same lane as oncoming traffic.
The truck would swerve back and forth from the right lane to the left lane, sometimes narrowly missing a car coming the other direction. No brakes were used at all as he glided from lane to lane, lane to shoulder and back.
Sometimes you get behind someone and think, “I wonder if that drivers had a few drinks” as they swerve every now or then within the lines.
This guy wasn’t even trying. This was no small lane swerve, but full fledged “I’m a crazy asshole and I’m gonna drive in whatever lane I want!” maneuver. One of the guys with me quickly called dispatch and advised them of the situation. We were told that there were no police units in the area. We decided to keep following the vehicle even after passing the fire station. We figured that this dude was either gonna kill himself or someone else. We called several more times keeping dispatch advised of our location and the situation.
At one point I flicked my high beams at the truck hoping that maybe he was simply falling asleep and it would get his attention. We debated turning our emergency lights on thinking he might pull over, but as erratically as he was driving we were afraid that he would run and crash in to someone. In fact after flashing the high beams the truck sped up to over 70 MPH.
After passing the fire station we had another 6 mile ride before the road we were on ended in a T intersection. The other side of the intersection was a embankment with trees and a fence on the top and a large field behind all of that. We held our breath time and time again as the truck swerved barely missing the oncoming cars.
You have to figure his 75MPH plus the oncoming drivers 55-70 MPH would have resulted in a combined impact of close to 130-145 MPH impact, with little to no braking on either vehicles part. None on his part because he’s obviously whacked out of his mind, and little to none on the other drivers part, because avoiding a vehicle in the other lane isn’t something we’re scanning for. We’re used to passing vehicles going the other direction with only a few feet separating us. When we see a car sitting at an intersection getting ready to pull out, we are preparing, at least subconsciously, for them to pull out in front of us. In any case there was a good chance that people in both vehicles would die in a head on impact.
As we approached the T intersection, we backed off another 100 yards in anticipation of something bad happening.
The truck, once again in the left lane, came within mere inches of hitting a passenger car! Four people were riding in that car as it was making the right turn onto the road that were at the end of.
The truck then barreled through the intersection at close to 70 MPH, with no brakes, no more swerving, just a big F U normal citizens of the world. THAT Truck hit the bottom of the embankment and I shit you not, flew over the trees on the top of the small hill.
Dirt went flying everywhere, if was like a real life Dukes of Hazard stunt. The truck came to a stop about 3oo yards into the field, the frame bent in the middle forming a V shape. We called it in as soon as he crashed, but advised the rest of the units to stage a block away as there was obviously something very wrong with the decision making capabilities of the driver.
After about 5 minutes of waiting for the Police, the truck’s driver side door opened and out steps the driver with blood running down his face. At first he started walking away but then staggered toward us from the middle of the field. Seeing that he wasn’t a threat, the rest of the units came to the scene as well as County and State Police.
Turns out this dude was drunk off his ass, and not having a medical problem. Several months later I got a witness subpoena and found out that this was the drivers 5th DUI crash. How the hell do you get to 5 and still have access to a vehicle? I mean seriously, no license, 5 crashes, ” Hey mom, Can I use the truck?” … “Well ok son, just don’t destroy it, die, kill someone, or go to jail, like you’ve done the 5 other times”
Anyway be responsible and don’t be like this idiot, and more importantly always be vigilant while driving. Watch for drivers like this so you have time to take evasive action even if it’s a fraction of a second more.
While it was the most impressive single car stunt crash I’ve ever seen, it could have ended very badly for some unsuspecting person that simply wanted to get home.
