    I tend to think they wanted to get arrested for smacking into a police car. It is screaming distracted driver.

    I dont know why they keep calling these 'accidents'.... I was told (a looong time ago) in traffic school that an accident is a situation in which ALL parties did EVERYTHING possible to avoid a collision. It's pretty obvious someone didn't do ANYthing to avoid the collision.
    sevenmph, buddyd157 and Cabinover101 Thank this.

    could have also been a drunk. they tend to follow the lights, either headlights, or tail lights. even at 11:00 in the morning. could have been going home from being at a casino or some other late night activity.

    I recall one undercover in or near the Summit near York PA on the top of I-83. He slammed his green sports car to a stop on the side, hopped out deploying a radar gun that initially looked like a bazooka.

    I steered to take him out until I saw the cord running from the thing into the car then gathered the rig back over. missed him. Im glad I did. Its worth my life and freedom etc. The problem was I was usually going in the depots with containers to and from the military in the general area so my mind was self preservation more than anything. Which was really stupid in those days.

    But he would not be doing that stupid stunt again up there. There is no room in those days for that foolishness.
    Bud A., sevenmph and buddyd157 Thank this.
