    One lucky idiot.

    I skipped the taking-heads, and went to the Pictures tab instead. ;)

    EDIT: I went back. Megan O'Roark is HOT.

    Good to see the kid survived, but I hope he gets fined to hell and back and loses his license for the rest of his life.

    When the car got airborn I was waiting for John McClain to roll out and a helicopter to show up in front of the car. Boooy was I dissapointed. But glad the kid survivied.

    Another teenage hotshot who should be on a cold, roll-out slab (or in a doggy bag). I see these types of reckless drivers all the time on the freeways here... does it make me a bad person to wish this type of carnage on every jerkoff driver that endangers the lives of everyone on the road by exceeding 90 mph?

    No, you are just following the dictates of Mother Nature.

    Survival of the fittest.

    The infrastructure that supports innocent victims also supports idiots like this guy.

    Now I wonder how the fruit of his loins will turn out?

    It is amazing that he survived. Hopefully he'll remember this lesson for the rest of his life.

    "Right now, troopers are investigating to see what role -- if any -- speed took in the crash."

    Really?!

    I'm no expert, but I'd say... yeah, speed had a role.

    Two observations:

    1. The guy was a dumbass for passing on the shoulder, period. Let alone passing a police car on the shoulder. Let alone passing a police car on the shoulder at 100+ mph.

    2. Either the guy's brake lights don't work, or he never even tried to slow down...

    Agreed, I'm stunned that he survived.

    Part of me is glad that he survived and that his parents do not have to go through the process of laying to rest a son.


    The other part of me... wishes he was dead so that idiots like this were off the road. I don't profess to be the best driver in the world but were is the common sense in passing a cop, on the should, going 100 mph+, and thinking he could get away with it??

    I want to know what was going through this dudes mind. 100mph? Yeah he is 19 and prolly thinks he is a hotshot. Passing a trooper on the shoulder going 100mph? I'm thinking drugs.

    Amazingly enough, not the overpass.

    ps. The video of this they showed on the local news is high enough resolution that you can see the guy flying and sliding across the road. His body passes in front of that car in the right lane.

    Yeah. The speed limit on that road was most likely 65-70 mph.

    On top of that, the fastest speed limit you'll ever seen in the US is 80 (that I know of).

    I saw this on Fark.com this morning (click here for comments).

    To paraphrase an interesting comment from there: "Two seconds earlier or ten seconds later, and the guy would have been in the opposing lanes, most likely killing himself and others."

    Another one, with much more of the snark typically found on Fark:
    "Looks like the Duke boys got spun around more than Daisy at a family reunion."

    Some "Farkers", as they call themselves, have even managed to find the driver's Facebook page.
