Just wondering was every "jack wang idiot" let out to be stupid on I74 in Indiana Wednesday morning ? The wife and I had to go to some calling hours near the IN and OH border Tuesday evening, then on to visit with some of her family on the IN/IL border Wednesday morning. There was maybe 4 inches of fresh snow with a little glaze underneath Wednesday morning. We left Brownsburg about 9 AM going west doing about 50 mph fairly safely. Couple semis blow by us, eh o.k. they're heavy maybe they have enough better traction. Then it was a delivery van, ya know the newer tall skinny type. Hmmm. We start catching a mini-van that had flashers on doing 40-45 mph. Well I didn't think it was quite that bad, but it was too bad too try and pull around and pass, so I trundle along about 6 car lengths back. Here comes a F350 dually 4 wd drive and a Chevy crew cab 4 wd apparently playing "speed racer" Ford in my lane Chevy in the other. Ford figures out he can't go over me an slams his brakes does some swiveling around an finally has to follow the Chevy around me in the high speed lane. oh ya, you can almost hear him cussing me and you can clearly see his middle finger as he makes it by. He then starts to pull back over like he's gonna go over the mini-van...at that point I'd already been off the gas hoping nothing happens. Well he swivels around some more , gets around the mini-van with his horn full on and takes off after the Chevy.
Am I a bad person when I feel just a little bit pious when we see all 3, the delivery van, F350 and Chevy spun off within a few hundred feet of each other about a mile up? Now understand I could clearly see the guy in the F350 on his phone (obviously not hurt) the Chevy was still spinning forward and back trying to get unstuck (not hurt) and the delivery van guy was out kicking his door. ( I'm thinking he probably ended up hurting his foot) I didn't return the gestures or language they had shared with me, I didn't even toot my friendly little horn,( I admit I really wanted to, but i restrained myself --gold star--)I just trundled along to the next exit where we I followed the mini-van off and then we took 136 ( a two lane/ the old road) the rest of the way to Covington. Later we heard that there were numerous bad accidents on 74, 70, 65 and 69 that morning. This is Indiana, it snows ever year, what in the world were these guys thinking ?
