Road trip safety
Don't push it! Your never in that much of a hurry to get to the destination or back home after the great outing. I'd hate to loose any of you great folks. This should illustrate how close it can come....
This accident happened north of Deer Lodge, Montana on I-90. The driver was a 22 year-old guy heading east to college. He had left central Washington early in the morning. He fell asleep at the wheel and drifted off the shoulder hitting the end of the section of guard rail.
The guard rail came through the right headlight, engine compartment, firewall, glove box, passenger seat, rear seat and exited out the driverís side rear window. That's 120 linear feet of guard rail that threaded through the suburban.
No passengers and the driver was not injured.
I am sharing this as a reminder to all about NOT driving when you shouldnít be behind the wheel (drinking, texting, distracted or just plain tired).
