THAT is one of the most disheartening stories I've EVER heard.

And if you ran down an embankment, you're lucky you WEREN'T injured. Even without snow tires, it's usually possible to drive safely in weather like this, if people would just use their heads. And the "superman" crowd is NOT using their collective heads! It's less of a problem here since our snow is usually wet, but the years we lived in Colorado, one single hot-dogger could throw up a cloud of powdery snow that would blind every other driver in the immediate vicinity . . . there oughta be a law!

No, they had illegal tires so they would have received a ticket. i think that is why they left the scene so fast.

Fight or flight mechanisms I guess. Fact is most people are cowards these days and don't want to stand up and be counted. They simply do what is easiest or gets them less hassle.

Were you ok no major injuries?

No injuries at all for me but my fainacial situation suffered. i had not anticipated having to but a new car then. The one that was totaled was about 4 years old. We really had a hard time making the payments on the new car.
