This was one of the scariest things I’ve ever experienced. I was driving home from the Cotton Bowl Friday. I was 9 and ½ hours into this drive with only 30 minutes to go when this happened. Someone was driving the wrong way on I-165 Southbound and nearly hit my car head-on. The moment, along with my humiliating fear-scream, was captured on my dash cam.
I laid on the horn and let out a few expletives (which I did not post as part of the video) and swiftly called 911. I called 911 through the iPhone operating system Siri. I learned if you use her to call emergency services, she will hesitate, ask if you really want to call emergency services and do a five-second countdown.
I don’t believe this driver got into a major accident, at least, none we are aware of. This was almost a disaster for both of us, but now I can laugh about my fear-scream. At the time of this posting the video had more than 200 shares on Facebook and more than 15,000 views.
I also posted the original video from Facebook and a version I uploaded to Youtube. Please keep in mind I’ve looped the video three times in the posts below.
