Out of control

A road rage incident recently took place on I-55S by Crystal Springs.  Two vehicles apparently mistook the interstate for turn four at Bristol. Watch for yourself.

I drive this stretch a good bit....it's a dangerous area with drivers going nuts.

The white F150 didn't want the smaller white car to pass...so he sped up....and caused the wreck. He may face jail

The way they came around the truck with the video it looked like they had been trading paint for a few laps.

What manner of officers are the two guys who got out of the Blue Lights SUV?

Anonymous said...

They guys in SUV were probably deputies from copiah county or some other jurisdiction.

Looks like a MDOT vehicle to me.

I hope they have high insurance limits rather than the states minimum 25/50/25. This one is going to get expensive.

Dude should hang. They even took out a car that wasn't even involved. That crap should be attempted murder.

Does stand your ground apply to vehicles? If so, white car gets off and white truck is in trouble (in addition to fleeing the scene). If not, white car should have hit the brakes instead of ramming white truck. If you're running someone off the road, though, you can expect them to defend themselves and ram you. White truck clearly sped up to keep pace with white car and chose to drive between two cars, in the center lane. White truck's probably going to Parchman. White car might join him.

I'm guessing the truck had been sitting in the left lane, blocking traffic, and the car flipped him off when it finally got the chance to pass. White truck, who saw it as his solemn, self-appointed duty to make sure people in the left lane drove the speed he deemed appropriate, was outraged someone did not respect his author-i-tie.

Those trees on the side of the interstate are pretty unforgiving. Hopefully no one in the grey Forerunner was hurt.

She doesn't look completely innocent in this either. That was pretty aggressive trying to cut him off. Glad it was on tape. They both need to do time.

Doing the speed limit in the right lane said...

As bad as this is, it is nothing compared to the thugs on 140mph motorcycles that pass you at 100mph doing a wheelie on I-55 North any given night of the week. MHP won't do squat due to the JPD jurisdiction that can't catch them.

9:20 AM would make a good lawyer....I see the same defense idea. White truck is indeed one of the self appointed deputies who thinks he can ride in left lane when in fact such an action is illegal. When the white car availed white truck of her opinion white truck did indeed take the usual passhole approach and attempt to cut her off as she moved past white truck.

white truck is in deep trouble.

Any knowledge on how those in the black 4 runner are doing, or extent of their injuries?

Aggressive driving on I-55 (high speed with dangerous lane changes) is reaching epic levels.

Last night, 01/31, on I-55, b/w Northide and Lakeland, must have been game night for bike races. It was non-stop, from what I heard, from 8:15ish till 10:00ish.

White truck didn't like someone passing. I drive that almost daily and people sitting in the left lane no one around. I don't like passing on the right. This pickup is totally at fault. Runs up side by side to the car , doesn't want to be passed so tries to get around the car or truck in the right lane a rams the white car. I see this all the time. It is like 22 feet is going to kill them. I put on my turn signal to move from the right lane to left to pass and have these left lane hogs speed up to keep me from passing. Should be a strong law against being in the left lane except for passing. Cruising in the left lane ties up traffic and causes this sort of stupidity.

Considering how fast the law gets there, I'm assuming someone in one of the white vehicles has already called 911. Or maybe this had been going on for some time, and another observer in an uninvolved vehicle made the call.

But truly, things have gotten out of hand - not just around Jackson, but anywhere near any sizeable Southern city. Out in the countryside, between cities, people still drive like decent humans. But Birmingham, Chattanooga, and Atlanta are like movies about Zombies-on-wheels (FAST Zombies...). And yes: the 'Crotch Rocket' thing is so BEYOND out-of-control, there needs to be a special task force, just to put a stop to THAT.

Maybe Kingfish could do an interview with MHP employee Warren Strain as to why the MHP/DPS aren't using the tools they currently have in order to catch these I-55 "crotch rocket" thugs?

So they slow down by 40 mph when they are passing you? Sounds safe to me!

Anonymous said...

How do we propose a patrol car or Harley cop motorcycle catch the crotch rockets? Nothing else on the road can maneuver at that speed.

This is unreal. Has anyone been charged in regards to this incident? Any updates?

I'd like to know what happened to the white truck. It shot off onto the other side of the median, drove down a little ways, and then crossed back over to the pavement only to disappear out of the camera's range.

If someone was driving slowly in the left lane of the Interstate & holding up traffic, that person is the guilty party. No questions asked. Period. Lock him/her up for 5 years minimum.

"As bad as this is, it is nothing compared to the thugs on 140mph motorcycles that pass you at 100mph DOING A WHEELIE" I've yet to see a 140mph wheelie so be the first to try it, asswipe.

Notice all the different versions of what happened in the comments. If people can't get the story straight watching a video, imagine how inaccurate witness testimony is. Listen to what the truck driver say as well when describing what he saw.

How can any of you hang this in part on the white car? That Ford pickup muscled his way in to play GTAV on the Interstate and ran like a little bitch when he found out life isn't a video game. He was in her lane, straddling the line when they collided. Most I can see is she was riding him close while he was passing the 18 wheeler.

This is 100% on that POS Ford truck driver. Hope he gets buried in that vehicle.

The fault should be equally shared by both. People are choosing sides according to their personal driving habits. If the troopers would get out more on the highways instead of trolling for truckers these things might not be so common.

I was driving down hwy 49 yesterday. I was in the right lane going 70 and was passed by a car with 7 more close behind it. About a car length between all of them. None of them would get over in the right lane. A couple of car lengths behind the 8 cars came a pickup pulling another pickup with a 10' rope, still in the left lane going over 70.
And people wonder why there are so many accidents.

It would be WONDERFUL if someone could provide us with the backstory, and the aftermath, for this video. Was anyone charged? Was anyone sent to detox? And most important, were the occupants of the dark SUV severely injured?

Kingfish, you're the Master Sleuth around here. Lots of people are wondering what happened.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug.
