Re: GC takes it on the chin in tragic pile up in PA
I was driving during a recent ice/snow storm on a main road, 45 mph speed limit with multiple lanes. There wasn't much snow on the section I was driving on, but a vehicle was approaching behind me going 50 or so while I was going 35. He didn't see the unplowed section in front of me and was approaching quick (and I wanted to slow down to 20).
I honked my horn, but the driver accelerated even more in response. I couldn't slow down in fear that I would be rear ended. Long story short, I hit the snow, but maintained control, but the other driver lost control and spun out into opposing traffic (luckily no cars were coming from that direction).
at my age, I thought I was supposed to be the one with the mentality that I'm invincible. I don't drive unless I need to in such conditions, mostly because of situations like this.
