I hope the driver will be OK. If you pair the description of the person's condition with the fact that police are looking to determine how the wreck happened, it sounds like they have not been able to communicate with the driver.
These cars are scary business. We all have a giant responsibility when behind the wheel. It's easy to forget, sometimes, how dangerous it is to be the operator or passenger of a motor vehicle. If you have been driving long enough, especially the same route over and over for years, you can get a little too relaxed behind the wheel.
All it takes for a reminder is a close call. I'll tell you what is scary, is being in high speed volume on the highway. When the road is moving and full, you can get alarmed in a hurry.
You know what I'd like to see less of, are the tractor trailers that sway in and out their lane, or the driver who sticks their nude foot out the window. That's just unsavory, I tell ya. It's a jungle on the roads. Stay safe, y'all.
