I am sorry but that is one stupid arse driver! 120 in a 45, dinky 2 lane road and loaded vehicle...what the hell were they thinking. Fortunately no one in the house and none of the other drivers that shared the same road with this ****** bag were injured or killed. I do feel sorry for the passengers but as for the driver...you are an asshat! Don't get me wrong, I love to peel rubber down the road but I cap my show boating at 10 over the speed limit. If you have a need for speed...take it to a track or salt bed. At least the 2 that were killed in the last HC accident had the sense to rent a runway.

This story really strikes close to home for me as I live next to the corner house on a pretty busy intersection. Both roads are 4 lane (2 lane for each direction) and speed limit is 35mph. My 2 little girls and I were playing in our front yard (faces our quiet dead end side street) when all of the sudden we hear screeching tires and metal smashing metal. I run to our back yard and see a sedan (was a brand new BMW - think it was a 5 series) that took down the corner streetlight (wedged under the car) sitting in my neighbors yard 15 feet from where his living room is. Driver appeared to be young girl in her mid 20s (had 3 of her girlfriends with her). Officer said she was speeding to beat the light and estimated she was at 50-60 mph. She clipped a minivan with a 3 month old in the back...thank God the baby and parents were ok. Freaks me out to this day (don't even want to type what about).

Sorry, but if you're tripling the speed limit on a narrow two-lane country road and kill yourself and your passengers, I have little sympathy for you. This is simply a prime example of Darwinism - nature didn't want these idiots to procreate.

Sad, but simple case of a driver not respecting the horsepower of a Hellcat and driving way beyond her capabilities .If people do not know their limitations or how to handle vehicles with this level of power, they're playing with a loaded hand gun without understanding how it works. These types of crashes will foster calls for limiting horsepower available to the general public in order to prevent things like this.

I know that road and I know that corner (curve is an understatement) and I wouldn't want to take it in an indy car at 120.

GT stands for "Got Traction?"

I'll race you any day... as long as it's wet and a very curvy road... =)
