I was watching Cops yesterday and the officers were called to an accident involving a car and a bicycle. When they arrive, they found a Toyota Corolla that drove off the road and landed in the woods. They asked the lady driving the car what happened, and wanted to know where the cyclist was. She says she was just driving along a straight road and skidded off. Where's the cyclist? She says she doesn't know anything about a cyclist.
The cops figure that the call was wrong, so they wave away the ambulance that arrives. Few minutes later, a dazed teenager comes stumbling up to the cops, drenched in blood. He had no memory of the crash and couldn't tell them which direction he was traveling or why. He didn't know his address and couldn't give them a name of someone to call. Upon closer inspection of the car, there was a teenager sized dent in the hood and the windshield was smashed like it hit a person.There was no other obstacle that would've made such a mark. They also found a bike in the woods, smashed to bits. The witness that called it in was driving behind the woman, and said she just smashed into the back of the bike, the kid flipped 10 feet into the air, and then they both skidded off the road.
The kicker is this: the woman was charged with failure to maintain lane! She nearly killed a 14 year old on a bike, then lied and said she never hit anyone, and she gets charged with failure to maintain lane?? What the hell is up with our justice system?
