  • Well...

    Hopefully the vehicle was not injured in this incident. I’m sure it was a good vehicle, and it never asked to be treated this way. I mean, what did that vehicle ever do to that driver to deserve this kind of treatment? I think it should sue the driver! The driver was INTOXICATED! She could have killed that car! That car probably had baby cars at home to take care of!

    Does she get a billed for the cost of her “rescue”, or does our tax money pay for her stupidity?
    I, for one, dont think may tax money should be used to fix stupid.

    geez…another woman driver…drive defensively & look for them in your rvm @ all times, esp w/cel or makeup mirror in hand…they’re all around…but glad she’s uninjured

    • Offended

      Your comment is very offensive, prejuidicial, and judgemental towards women. The fact that she is a woman had nothing to do with this accident. Her being intoxicated, did.

        be offended, that’s ok. base my observation driving I 49 watching women with cell in one hand, cosmetics in another @ 80mph. actually men probably are the worst offenders in accidents. but women drive as though their agenda is all their own….in this case, booze sorry
