Last Saturday I went to a play in Vista,Calif. with a friend of my sisters.(my sister couldn't go so she gave me the ticket.) We were late because a tractor-trailer layed on its side and closed the freeway on the opposite side.After the play we came back on the same freeway(15) and was trapped in 2 mile a hour traffic.We were in the slow traffic from 9:20 PM until 1:30 AM.It is only about 40 miles from Vista to Temecula. Even the back roads were stopped up with traffic. We were low on gas and had to coast the last 20 miles.Lucky us it was downhill.When we got to HWY 79 ,we took the off ramp in to a crazy mess of frustrated people.We finally made it home safe and sound. I found out today what happened. While the truck was stopped at the scales,The hitchhiker in the truck stole it and took off down the road swinging back and forth between the lanes. Apparently he was trying to knock Zombies off the truck. They kept climbing up the back.In swinging between lanes,the hitchhiker managed to hit several pickups which in turn hit others and flipped them.8 vehicles in all. two people were seriously injured and others moderate to minor..On one of the swerves, the illegal driver lost control of the big rig and put it on its side. The driver jumped out and climbed into a pickup stopped due to the wreck. He demanded they get him away from the Zombies chasing him.The people detained him until the police arrived.So I guess I'm lucky.We missed the Zombie attack.Oh Darn!
