This is perfect nominee for a Darwin Award. Thankfully he only killed himself and no one else. What an idiot.
Three lanes of westbound I-80 were closed for more than two hours after the driver of a 1989 Ford Aerostar minivan clipped a pickup in the carpool lane west of Carlson Boulevard around 5:45 a.m., the CHP said. The minivan then crashed into the center divide and flipped a number of times, sending debris across the freeway.
The driver, who died at the scene, may have been “brake-checking” the driver of 2004 GMC pickup truck at the time of the crash, said Officer Sam Morgan, a CHP spokesman.
Brake-checking involves intentionally swerving in front of a car and slamming on the brakes, Morgan said.
The preliminary investigation shows that the minivan driver, the lone occupant of the vehicle, may have misjudged the space in front of the pickup, Morgan said. The driver’s name has not been released.
“Yeah fat ass… there’s a line!”—One man in line at Peet’s (no, not me) to another man that mistakenly walked directly up to a cashier. San Francisco would definitely not be mistaken for the “city of brotherly love” today.
“Someone at Google thinks you’d be a great fit here. We’re looking at your skills and experience to see whether we have the right opportunity for you.”—Best introduction to an email that I’ve received in a looooong time. Fingers crossed!
This guy needs to be shot. MUNI has enough issues on its own without some jackass trying to drive a car through the underground.
The train I was on this morning was “dropped from the computer” between Van Ness and Civic Center. When that happens the emergency brakes go on sending everyone flying as the train screeches to a halt. The operator had to go into manual mode after that and, when in manual mode, the trains just creep along from stop to stop.
Wells Fargo could increase revenue by reinstating stagecoach service as alternate to MUNI. It would probably be faster and more reliable.
