Usually when someone says “Jesus take the wheel” it’s meant to help them through a rough patch in life.
That or when the Mexican racing team needs to switch drivers at the halfway point.
But police say an Indiana woman took the phrase literally on July 11th, when she took her hands off the steering wheel as she was driving.
If there's one disclaimer that belongs on almost every spiritual issue, it's "don't take this literally."
The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette reports 25-year-old Prionda Hill told authorities she let go of the wheel because “God told her he would take it from here.”
"Okay Prionda, I'm done creating that nebula from nothing and populating a planet a few million light years from Earth with a complete ecosystem, I guess my "CEO of the Universe" duties can wait while I help you out with various banal tasks."
Unfortunately for Anthony Olivery, her car veered off the road and slammed into his motorcycle, throwing him to the ground. Then the car ran over him.
Clearly "bad luck" is the culprit and not almost unbelievable stupidity.
“When I looked at that bumper and looked at that tire, I told myself, today is the day you die,” he told the paper.
Ordinarily I'd be skeptical of this stoic calm in the face of death, but again, motorsickle rider. Every time you get on that "hog" you must be thinking "Yeah, this will probably kill me. I'm fine with that" while making sure to evade those tyrannical helmet laws.
The accident broke all of Olivery’s ribs on his left side, cut his spleen, bruised his kidney and caused severe injuries to his left arm and leg.
It was the least serious motorcycle accident that we have a record of.
Hill kept on going, according to court records, hitting a pickup truck twice and only stopping when her car crashed into an island between two fast food restaurants several blocks away from where she struck Olivery. Officials say she told officers she had a prescription for Vicodin.
So she's basically a dopehead and this cover story about "Take the wheel, Jehovah!" was the best excuse her addled mind could create on short notice.
This is some solid irony.
Hill was arrested and charged with failure to stop after an accident and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon.
Sorry we added a bunch of irrelevant shaggy dog nonsense to a very straightforward "scumbag does drugs, injures man on sui-cycle" story.
I blame Hollywood for giving weak minds the idea that "magic" actually happens.
Probably a senior Obama adviser
What's up with the title of this article referencing Jesus. Obama clearly stated that "we are no longer a Christian nation". The article itself only references God. The separation between Church and Everything Else has been violated here.
The problem here is bad theology.
Piglosi is a hypocrite, and so are her defenders... IE YOU
