Ever read about a car crash and hear things like, “The car went airborne for 40 feet” and say to yourself, “Holy hell! Airborne for 40 feet!”
Yeah, I used to do that too, until I read this:
Rhodes was accused of losing control of her SUV, going airborne for 230 feet and crashing through a wall of a garage, killing 83-year-old Lester L. Smith.
Let me spell that out for you: two hundred and thirty feet. You know what is 230 feet? Enough to jump over 38 Saturn VUE-sized SUV’s lined up side to side. In fact, the Pitt Fall at Kennywood is 250 feet. Let me give you a rough to-scale visual of how far that woman from Bedford flew in her SUV.
I’m guessing no matter what she pleads, she’s going to jail.
Drive safe, folks.
