Was that car from the ATL area??
Last time I was there almost everyone was driving around 85 MPH at 2:00 PM on a Sunday? Who the **** is in a hurry at 2:00 PM Sunday !!!

How anyone makes it home from rush hour there is beyond me. Every time I drive in ATL and make it to my destination I feel so lucky that I want to buy an effing lottery ticket.

Sorry, really don't have much info. Car came from Mississippi I think. Condition of driver is unknown, but I'm not hopeful.

No way the driver of that car is okay. Not possible. Really makes you think.. I've had my close calls, but damn.

Yeah that was him, He also swapped out his front bumper with an 02 with the projector style 02 lights. His car had the FM1 kit on it.
He traded it in on a Mazdaspeed 3, and his was stock and red.
It was the night of one of our Club Meets, I took him for a ride in my Begi Stage 3 Miata, and then we all departed. Then in the morning we got word he didn't make it home. What happend was that he was getting on his car, and (This is based on what the trooper said.) Someone changed lanes in front for him. He swerved to miss, and clipped the bumper of their car, and went offroad into a palm tree. Alcohol was not a factor in the accident.
