...learned about karma the hard way today.
I drive down I-95 for all of 2 miles every morning and see my fair share of road ragers, but this mornings example takes the cake!
Picture 3 lanes of traffic:
I'm in the center lane (going around 75mph, fwiw) and had just passed a slower driver in the right lane when I hear screeching tires. I look over my left shoulder and see an Audi TT in the passing lane being tail-gated a Hyundai (older Sonata, maybe?) that I see pretty much every morning (I recognized their bumper sticker).
I can only assume that the Audi 'brake-checked' the Hyundai, causing them slam on their brakes & creating the sound that I heard.
As soon as both cars passed me, the driver in the Hyundai decided to aggressively whip into my lane (I assume to try to pass & then cut off the Audi in a fit of road rage), but over-corrected and ended up completely sideways, directly in front of me
Thankfully, there was no-one right behind me, so I was easily able to slow down and avoid plowing into them (can't imagine the devastation my JKU would've done to that little Hyundai!). I watched as they slid back across the passing lane, somehow missing the Audi, drove into the grass median, and then crashed head-on into the guard rail.
Unfortunately, since I was in the center lane and had cars all around me, I was unable to stop and offer assistance. However, I noticed several cars from behind them stopping to help.
I'm counting my blessings that I was able to avoid being involved in this crash and sincerely hope that the Hyundai driver is OK, but I can't help thinking that they learned a valuable lesson about Karma today.
