    :rofl: That's what I was thinking... Well, look at it this way: We always need good Darwin Award nominees.

    Can you imagine what that poor guy was going through? What a terrifying experience!!!

    :rofl::rofl: Wow this guy must have been scared to death! It's a funny story but I do feel kinda bad for him, at least he wasn't hurt.

    Im surprised. If the wheelchair was stuck at any kind of angle, the consequences wouldn't be too good at 50mph...

    Glad he's okay and everything, but jeez, that Jen person was incredibly annoying! I have new respect for 911 operators to have to listen to people so incoherent. The other callers seemed able to keep themselves under control enough to explain the situation, but you'd have thought Jen was the one stuck to the truck the way she was freaking out. :rolleyes:

    I agree, that woman is annoying. They should drag her in a wheelchair. :grumpy:


    Is she having sex or giving birth? This woman needs to see a shrink.

    It really was not his time to die. Cause there is no road here that as smooth as he discribes, so it had to be fate.

    To be fair, as far as she is concerned, she is witnessing someone being dragged screaming to their death.

    so was everyone else calling 9-1-1. Listen to the lady right after her, shes says, "Someone is being dragged" -the end.



    She is like, ohhhhhhh, ahhhhhhhh, uhhhhhhhhh, uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, uhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, moan, uhhhhhhhhhhhh. Is she having an orgasm? :tongue2:

    Even the guy in the chair wasnt screaming that much.

    Sigh, I know........but still I'm not laughing at him. It's really more about laughing at the situation itself. I do feel kinda bad for him, but the situation is really ridiculous.
