Luckily the bar was out in the country where there was minimum to no traffic after 2:00 am. Clyde decided he was okay enough to ride his brand new Honda Goldwing Interstate home. Big fucking mistake. So Clyde pops in Pearl Jam into the cd and heads home. While traveling at 75 mph Clyde misnavigates a turn and down he goes. Not cool. Clyde lay in a ditch next to the road for 3 hours until some early morning fishemen were driving by and see the headlight of the Honda still on (thank god). They found him and put him in the back of their truck and drove him to the closest hospital. This hospital didn't have the means to treat Clyde, so the Life Flight helicopter was summoned and flew Clyde to Houston Hermann Memorial Hospital where he stayed in ICU for 2 weeks. Clyde was released with a $70,000.00 medical bill and later got a certified letter from the local DA for DWI charges. Clyde was put on 2 year probation. This is a true story. Thank god it was only Clyde that was hurt. Moral: Don't be a Clyde...........
P.S. Clyde puncture both of his lungs and had 15 broken bones....the end
and he feels much better today and doesn't do such stupid shit anymore!!!
Hate to hear that story, but glad you're alright.
I used to drive drunk quite a bit in my twenties, a practice that I justified by telling myself that I lived in LA, that it was impractical and expensive to take cabs around such a sprawling city, and that everyone pretty much has to drive drunk to get home from bars.
One night, while driving home only mildly buzzed, I drove my car off a freeway and totally destroyed it. I was more or less unhurt, which was a miracle. The cops showed up and told me that some chick had done pretty much the same thing a few weeks earlier and had died on impact. They breathalyzed me, and I passed by a fraction of a percentage. Again, extremely lucky.
Driving drunk is fucking retarded. There are no excuses.
