The war zone and the hummer
One of my riding buddies came by today for a tire change. All went well with that so we decided to go for a ride. We rode up near Mount Rainier and enjoyed the 39 degree temps. It was getting dark so we turned around and started down the mountain. We caught up with another bike and a long line of cars going the speed limit. This area has lots of deer, Elk,Bear, and mountain lions so I decided to take her easy and just follow the others. Live to ride another day kind of thing. We were in this line maybe two minutes and we passed a hummer on the side of the road. Just as we passed him the hummer pulled back on the road behind my buddy and was fish tailing all over the place. He immediately passed us and pulled in behind the unknown rider in front of me. Tailgating him like a madman. I thought to myself that if he could afford a hummer he should be smart enough to drive better. An oncoming car passed and he was out passing the bike and long line of cars at a high rate of speed. This was a two lane road with huge trees on both sides of the road.. So dense I had no gps reception. I lost sight of him and thirty seconds later the cars in front of us started braking and doing evasive maneuvers.At first I thought maybe a critter was on the road It ended up being the idiot in the hummer ran a car off the road. A quarter mile later the road turned into a full out war zone. Tree branches, Hummer parts, clothes and debris covered the whole road for two hundred yards. Then came the hummer in the middle of the road with every side smashed up and the roof caved in.I can't imagine how many times he rolled. Four cars stopped to help the dude, I figured there was no phone reception in that remote location so we rode through the mine field of debris heading for the nearest town to call the cops. The next town was about twenty miles away and as we neared it we saw a cop and two ambulances en route. I hope the idiot and his passengers lived to learn what total asshats they were.
