where I come from, they usually give a little info to describe the vehicle over the scanner. I can't believe she didn't do the 2 + 2.

If you suffer from epilepsy, feel faint and drive anyway. Then please have the curtesy to only kill yourself.
 
2013-12-05 01:51:08 AM
The man has epilepsy and for some reason was allowed to drive. He felt faint, left work early, and got in a car to drive home! He caused the wreck by veering over a median into oncoming.


I feel sorry for the wife, regardless of the circumstances. It's real sad.

His Hyundai Elantra veered across a grassy median and collided head-on with a Toyota

Toyota wins.

Fatality.
 
2013-12-05 01:52:55 AM
Horribly sad.

I know that road well.
 
2013-12-05 01:53:48 AM
If I was prone to eliplepsy, I think I'd drive something a bit more substantial than a Hyundai... Like maybe a garbage truck or a back hoe
 
2013-12-05 02:00:25 AM
Can't help thinking that the fact she was live-tweeting it only made it worse when she discovered who it was she'd been tweeting about.

Auras can qualify someone as being allowed to drive, otherwise, case law can be found for discrimination.

I was listening to the dispatch of a friend who committed suicide the other day, so I'm not really amused.

I too hate the attitude that you need to be dead before being disqualified from driving. It shouldn't be up to your family doctor, who essentially works for you. Major conflict of interest.
 
2013-12-05 02:12:15 AM
Seriously though, this is heartbreaking. I'm sure looking bad she regrets Tweeting "Some dude totes pulled a Paul Walker lol ghey"

2013-12-05 02:18:23 AM
Her tweets are just so....removed.  "it's him. he died", shortly followed by "I'll reply to everyone later tonight."

Maybe it's just me, but I don't think I'd be so tied to my Twitter feed under those circumstances.

K, night, off to bed with my phone.

RTFA...the other driver survived...glad the fark "kill yourself alone" brigade is out in force all day all nite...ya ya blah blah something something this guy shouldn't have been driving...yes we all get it....still a sad story....
 
2013-12-05 02:25:57 AM
Well, the husband is an idiot for driving in that condition. I hope the real victim sues the shiat out of the insurance. As far as the wife goes...I don't really care since she sounds like an attention whore.
 
2013-12-05 02:26:07 AM
As a former #VanWA tweep, she is well known for her Twitter presence. I'm not surprised at all that she's taken back to it, even after all this has happened.

If any of you Farkers are so inclined, there's a fund set up for her here:  www.youcaring.com/HelpScanCouver

"Hey, Bob.  You're looking a bit peakish.  Don't want you having a seizure on the way home.  Let me drop you off."

This is what pisses me off the most.  What kind of bastard fellow employees must you work with, if nobody is willing to take ten minutes to make sure you make it home alive?  We're too damned tied to the freaking punch-clock.

It's the sort of thing you don't know until you experience it.
They seemed reasonable to me. I imagine she was in shock.

I had no idea that epileptics were allowed to drive nowadays. I was reading 'Touching From A Distance' (Joy Division biography) years back, and read that Ian Curtis was turned down several times for a driver's license because of his epilepsy. That was '79, though. No idea about now.

That's not a Ford. That's the front end of the Hyundai with the windshield removed (compare your second and third pics; pic is taken from the front; the long red bar is your guide).

not sure what the laws are but i worked with an epileptic and she was allowed to drive...my guess is it is now based on testing and whether or not they can function in normal situations....no clue though...

can i ask what you base you answer on?? again first my response is the camper shell. second from what i can see in the pic it looks like a truck bed (owned a ford ranger), i know its kinda far away but still looks like a truck bed from the pic. third the first 2 are grey and the last appears to be black...just a question, no snark???

sorry re-evaluating the pictures you are correct the 2nd and 3rd are the same car....reflection of the sun and late nite on here i didnt see that...

I guess my question is where did that camper shell come from??

also can someone explain the headline to me? i was thinking it referenced  either metallica or the poem the raven..but i just dont understand it....

I'm kind of having a hard time feeling bad for her. She was tweeting about a fatal car accident as entertainment. She thinks it's fun to give out shocking and disturbing facts ( and nothing in the content of her tweets lead me to believe she was doing it to inform people of potential hazards). So now. He tragedy because entertainment. Sad all around.
 
2013-12-05 03:44:14 AM
The Hyundai is the silver one.  It's clearly a 2000-2006 Elantra 5-door.

The Toyota is the pickup truck (not sure which model).  It doesn't look like one from the front, but it is - you can see the camper shell just behind it.
 
2013-12-05 03:46:49 AM
This thread is quite possibly the best and worst of Fark I've seen in a while.

No judgements. Just kudos.

I was going to mention the wreck a year or two ago where a woman was using her phone to film it, rather than call for help. Turned out it was her sister burning to death.

I tried to Google it, but no matter what I enter, I'm re-directed to links for videos of movies with similar concepts.

We suck as a species.
