Driving -- A Minute to Learn, A Lifetime to Master

In mid-March, right after I got the job and right before I went down to Manassas to live in a hotel for a week, I had to drive back to Pittsburgh to pack up my work clothes for the week.

On the Pennsylvania Turnpike I saw, not one, but two accidents. Both looked pretty serious. But the thing that got me was, the weather was pretty much clear. It's like both cars just randomly drove off the highway.

[Firemen surrounding a smoldering wreck of a car]Just after I got on the turnpike in Breezewood, traffic slowed to a standstill as our first contestant got up close and personal with the Jersey wall between the eastbound and westbound lanes. The fire was out by the time I got there, so all I got for my trouble was this one photo.

[An upside-down car near Somerset]Somewhere near the Somerset interchange I noticed an ambulance going full-blast coming up the on-ramp. I moved over to let him on and he took off up the highway. Being the sicko I am, I followed behind him, though at a respectable distance in case there were cops looking for speeders. Once the ambulance pulled over I saw this entry, who I must declare the winner. Looks like the aftermath of a demolition derby.
