Why do people drink and drive? A while back, in January, I saw a fatal head-on collision on the interstate between a drunk woman driving the wrong direction and a semi truck. This one was ugly and there was no body left. About a month ago I had a car lose control and spin out in front of me on the interstate and almost had about 78,000 pounds rammed through their door. I'm not sure if they were drunk, but they were swerving as if they could have been. And then tonight (actually early this morning), a young guy was driving quite a bit faster than the 55 MPH speed limit on a rural two lane highway about 8 miles from town. He misses the curve in the road and rolls his car about 4 times and it came to a rest on it's driver side about 250 feet from where he left the road. He must have not been wearing a seat belt because he was thrown from the car. He landed on his back next to the car, and if it would have rolled just a little more and landed on it's wheels it would have crushed the upper 25% of his body. There was a lady driving behind him and I was a ways behind her. We both stop and she calls 911 and I go to help this guy and check to see if any other people were with him. He was alone. He was just laying still and breathing slow but deep. I talked to him and then he opened his eyes and raised his head up. Within a couple minutes he was up and stumbling around. He was real drunk and was asking me "Is that my car?". His cooler and beer were thrown from the car also. It took the emergency people about 10 minutes to show up which is a real good reponse time considering the location of the accident. He refused any medical attention, but the ambulance guys talked him into "getting in the ambulance so we can check you out". They hauled him away shortly after. This is one VERY lucky guy.
