ROAD RAGE, GOOD SAMARITAN CAUSES CRASH
Not many people like traffic. Some people get grumpy about volume or bad drivers. Most people have driving pet peeves. On stressful days, it can lead to something called “road rage.” Road rage is defined by the Merriam-Webster dictionary as “a motorist’s uncontrolled anger that is usually provoked by another motorist’s irritating act and is expressed in aggressive or violent behavior.” Even Good Samaritans can suffer from road rage. And this Good Samaritan causes crash, on purpose.
MAN DROVE LIKE A MANIAC
Well, Bruce John Homer, 61, from Lake County, Florida has not been happy with a traffic section in his area. Very unhappy. So, he was compelled to prove to everyone that this busy intersection in his neighborhood was unsafe by driving like a maniac and crashing his car into an SUV.
GOOD SAMARITAN CAUSES CRASH ON SECOND ATTEMPT
Homer told the County sheriff’s deputies that he didn’t think the law enforcement was imposing regulations about a dangerous situation. Basically, drivers kept running the stop sign at the intersection. So, Homer being the Good Samaritan that he says he is, decided to help the county police by creating a great big accident. He put his life and other lives in danger, just to prove a point.
ENFORCEMENT WON’T HELP, SO IDIOT PROVES A NEGATIVE
The SUV driver told officials that he was driving through the intersection when Homer’s truck hit him. The motorist said Homer then sauntered towards him and declared that he had run the stop, and that it was the tenth accident in the area. He said that the enforcement will do nothing to help until someone dies.
MISSED ANOTHER CRASH ATTEMPT, BUT RAGE CONTINUED
Investigators said Homer admitted he was the cause of the crash and that it may not actually be his first. Homer explained to County Deputies that he and his wife almost collided into a vehicle at the same intersection several weeks ago. The second time is the charm. The Good Samaritan at last succeeded and is being charged with two counts of battery with a deadly weapon and another for reckless driving. Authorities released the Good Samaritan after he posted a $20,500 bond. So Lake County beware, there’s a guy on the road that wants to kill you, to save you.
