It’s never suggested that you should take the traffic rules into your own hands and start driving the wrong way. This can only lead to trouble, pain, and sometimes death. The driver of a Chevy Suburban decided that he wanted to defy the law by traveling west on Eastbound I-10. It was early in the morning, and the traffic was such that he could get away with it for a few moments.
That was right up until the time that the Suburban careened headlong into a PT Cruiser. The Cruiser burst into flames, and other traveling motorists did everything that they could to try to put out the fire. Unfortunately, the crash took the life of the passenger of the PT Cruiser. The driver of that and the Suburban were rushed to the hospital in critical condition. It is suspected that alcohol played a part in this incident, however no charges have been filed.
The laws have been put in place for a reason, and this is one of the basics. Always go the right way and don’t drink and drive. While it might seem like a good idea at the time, it never ends well.
