Default Why me? Always a 30min drive and pouring rain...

So again i was driving home from a party at Buffalo Wild Wings about a 35minute drive from my house. It was pouring down rain and many drivers had pulled off to the side of the road (i stayed on, goin 25 cause i had Rain-X so i could see purty well) but one small VW also stayed and he proly went by me at 35 or so (that was fast for the conditions) The interstate was well worn and had 2 ruts from trucks where water sat. He hit a resonably deep set of the ruts and the front of his car instantl slowed but the back of the car didnt. He whipped around and the front end of the car slammed into a 4' high concrete barrier. Well this looked really bad cause the car was proly crushed from the left front corner to the left sside firewall. and the right side was bulging at the engine mounts. Well i stopped along with a few other people and he was able to get up and walk to an underpass, so i left cause i needed to get home (it was 11:30pm). Man, i feel like im either bad luck or in the wrong place at the wrong time. Or the other side is i was never in the wreck and both people walked away (both refering to the other crash i saw, read my other post) I think OH drivers (or at least cincinnati) need to learn how to drive, or at least use common sence. Same moral here, DONT BE STUPID (like ill admit i have been way too many times)

It ain't just Ohio, dude. Had pretty much the same thing happen in front of me on the interstate running through Minneapolis here. Major differences, it was only sprinkling a bit, and the dude that bounced off the barrier has just flipped me off for going "too slow"(I was doing 50, slowed to about 40 for the curve).

I just smiled and waved as I passed his brand new Cavalier with the newly modified rear-end.

Sorry to hear about what happened, but I noticed OHIO drivers are the worst people on the roads. I took a trip to Sandusky back in MAY and man they don't like using turn signals, they switch lanes too much and one lady while driving back home in the storm never had her lights on.
