Asleep at the Wheel... Pedal to the Metal... and Real, REAL Lucky

-click any to enlarge-

Accident occurred north of Deer Lodge, Montana on I-90. The driver was a twenty-something guy headed back east to college. He had left central Washington early in the morning, but fell asleep at the wheel and drifted off the shoulder hitting the end of the section of guard rail at high-speed...





The guard rail came through the right headlight, engine compartment, firewall, glove box, passenger seat, rear seat and exited out the driver s side rear window. That is 120 ft. of guard rail that threaded through the Suburban...


Thankfully, there were no passengers in the truck, and the driver escaped uninjured.


Careful out there, people... few of us will be so fortunate.

This was Rush Limbaughs fault, I heard it reported the kid had his radio program on at the time.

Those darn right-wingers!

OMG, that was scary. Thanks for reminding me why I don't drive, RR.
He should go to Church, and buy a lotto ticket, too.

OMgosh. it wasn't his time to go, I guess. That's about as scary as I have seen - or maybe as weird as I have seen.
