good samaritan, but on the clock
This morning I was greeted by very ugly commuting weather: freezing rain had come during the night, and ice pellets were falling. After attempting my usual back-road route, I detoured onto the highway in the hopes of finding somewhat better conditions.
The conditions were not bad, and I certainly didn't have any of the sphincter-exercising moments that I've had on previous icier days. The lady in front of me, however, was not so lucky. I watched as her van fishtailed to the left, kept on arcing clockwise, and witnessed her plunge into the ditch facing backwards, with her vehicle coming to rest on its side. I put on my 4-way flashers, stopped, got out and called 911.
