Friday night me and my homeboys were coming out of a local brewery full of alcohol and piss. As we climbed into my buddy’s truck we saw a Mustang whiz by on Patterson (40mph zone) probably going over 100mph.
“Did you see that?!” I exclaimed. Not 3 seconds after the words came out of my mouth we all heard a screeeech-thump! THUMP! thump, thump!
“Did you guys hear that?!! I think that car just rolled!!! He had to have just rolled his car!” I yelled stupidly. Then we saw a cloud of smoke billow up above the trees.
“Let’s go drive by!” my buddy said.
“No, dude! We can’t! That means we’re required by law to help and I don’t know how! Plus none of us are in a good condition to help if you know what I mean!”
So we drove to a point one block south and ran through a field. As we came out of the clearing we saw plenty of by-standers including the girl whose car was clipped by the speeder. She had been spun around and was really shaken up but OK. He and another witness said that the driver of the Mustang crawled out and ran away.
Down the street not 50 yards from us was the Mustang facing us engulfed in Hollywood-Style 6 foot flames. My buddy ran up near it to take video with his phone.
“Dude! Get away from there! that things gonna blow!” we yelled at him. Right about that time we heard a BOOM! and saw pieces of flaming debris fly into the air.
All in all it was a good time and I wouldn’t hesitate to do it all again!
