Scariest day of my life

I'm not usually one to post these kinds of stories, but I'm so shook up right now, I just had to get it.

It was a beautiful day, and I got the car all cleaned up. Took it the park, got some great pictures I was looking forward to posting. Picked up my lady, and headed to a car show. We were a little early, so we decided to stop off for some food.

We were driving along on a four lane, 35 mph street. The light ahead was just turning green, but there were stopped cars ahead. As I slowed down, BAM, rear ended really hard. BAM, another hit from the same car. I couldn't believe it. I pointed for the guy to pull off to the side... And them he takes off!

My girlfriend started to call the police, and I started to follow to get the plate so we could report it.

He jumps on the expressway, so I keep following, the rear of my car dragging behind me.

He gets off at the first exit, which has a lot of traffic. He decides to run through the shoulder, and through oncoming traffic. He SMASHES into a mini-can and flips the car over, and then drives off again!

We were able to pull over after traffic moved on, and along with other bystanders, were able to help her out.

We were with the police and EMTs for awhile. Thankfully, everyone is ok. We have been in touch with the woman's husband and daughter. We are a little sore and very shaken up. This really freaked and stressed me out.

I never imagined I would be in a situation like this. And now my car, which I finally finished, is trashed. The police wanted me to tow it, and the only way they would let me take it is if I ripped the bumper off and made sure nothing was jamming my tires or causing a safety hazard. I'll post pics later when I can bring myself to do so.

Thanks for reading.

Wow.

I never really got along with you, Wheelman, but I must say what you did has made me respect you a little more.

I hope you, your lady, and your car are okay.

We found out right as we were getting to leave the scene that hey had apprehended him. This guy was definitely up to something, he was on a rampage.

Thanks for the well wishes, the support of you all here does mean a lot. This is one of those moments that really makes you rethink what is important in life, and how one should carry themselves.

Wow, I can't believe that. I'm sorry about the car, but the important thing is that you and your girlfriend are alright. I would sue the living shit out of that guy if I was you, and I'm not one for suing people. What a POS

I'm sorry...but remember at the end of the day and it's only a car. YOUR LIFE IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN A CAR!!! Stay strong and it will all end up working itself out.

Crazy story! Takes a lot of balls to chase the person who hit you down! Especially when you're in a state of shock. Glad you and your lady are okay! Hopefully everything will be taken care of though. Best of luck!

I'm glad you, your girlfriend and the others are okay. A car can easily be fixed or replaced, people, not so much.

Are you frickin kidding me.

Some of you may have seen me talk about how some people in society just need to be put down. This would be one who should be put on the receiving end of a firing line.

Sooooooooo so sorry you had to go through this and sorry about your car, but very glad no one was badly hurt. Very glad that got that guy too. I hope he gets what's coming to him. Keep up posted on what happens with your car. Oh, and do post up those pics.
