This is something that you never want to hear...

 

"You are paddle-boarding next to approximately 15 great white sharks," the Associated Press reported Deputy Brian Stockbridge telling people in the water over a helicopter loudspeaker. "They are advising you exit the water in a calm manner. The sharks are as close as the surfline."

I had a scary moment today.

 

I turned onto a 4-lane road this afternoon that is usually very busy but I happened to be the only westbound vehicle at the moment. I crossed over a bridge and I saw a SUV in the fast lane of the eastbound side. It looked like the driver had just hit the median island curb that separates the eastbound from westbound traffic and was slowly pulling away from the  curb. The road is usually very busy but the vehicle was fortunately the only one there at the time.

 

The SUV was pulling away from the curb as I passed it but I watched it in my rear view mirror and saw the driver speed up, turn to the right, drive across two lanes and go over the curb and down a steep embankment. I believe I was the only one to see the SUV go over the embankment. :eek:

 

I pulled over, called 911 and then found a safe place to turn around. Fortunately the police were there when I got back (very quick response), While I gave them my report I could see the SUV about 30 feet down the embankment in a ditch. Fortunately the driver was able to walk away from the accident, one of the officers said she had been texting...:tsk: He also said they recently responded to a similar accident in the same area and it was a fatality..
