Illinois - Sunday Sept 10th - crash!

Don't know if this dude is on the board or not.

Saw a Red Focus on I90 and Randall Rd in Illinois driving like a mad man. Ended up getting sideways and rolled his car and ended up in a ditch. Didn't hit any cars but man... that must of been one hell of a ride.

Anyone know this guy or hear anything? I wanted to know if the dude and his girlfriend were ok.

I hope so, and I hope he learned not to drive like a race car driver on a public highway.

racing needs to be on the track only...it is alot safer on the track than on a public street, even I though I have been guilty of it once or twice (this week...lol). when I have the urge to race, I take it to the track...I am glad no one else got hurt and he is well enough to learn his lesson...
