      • Maybe he thought he was going to be among the very few to ever out run a radio? Now that he put the lives of multiple people in danger and sent a trooper to the hospital… well. Don’t want to be him. Plus putting the child in just as much direct danger as himself and the trooper…


  1. You’d think the trooper was on his death bed or something. Minor injuries. He’s my neighbor. So he’s home and my Street is lined with state police vehicles visiting him.
