I was heading down the highway today with my two brothers on our way home. A ford escort was in front of me. Traffic was steady at 65 or 70ish. Out of no where, the rear axle of the escort broke. The ass end of the car went all over the place. Luckily the guy got it under control and pulled over. I wanted to make sure he was okay, so I pulled over too. He was shaken up, but all right. His girlfriend was petrified, who was in the car in front of him and saw him spin out. He missed cars by inches. It could of easily been a 6 car pileup. It's a blessing nobody was hurt or any accidents were caused. I really think it's a blessing that my brothers were with me. The one who was sitting up front with me is getting ready to start driving. It was the perfect lesson, seen first hand of what can happen in the blink of an eye. For the love of God, keep a firm hand on the wheel and be alert at all times. Please.
