Well, we had a scary drive home tonight. . .as we were going on an on ramp to the freeway the car in front of us was pulling on and kept going over the lines. . .then we get on the road and she was driving erratically. . . In the left lane over the left line across to the right lane almost hits the barrier wall. . . Barely missing other cars. She was waving her hand and looked like she might have been talking to someone. . .so we got past her . . . But she pulled up behind us and wanted us to go faster (we were already going 5 over the speed limit and there was a lot of traffic, we couldn't go any faster. . . I looked in the mirror and she was driving down the center of the two lanes over the dashed lines! Then she passed us (gave us the gesture) and pulled into the lane on the right which was an off ramp. . .and at the last minute jerked back on and almost hit someone. It was horrifying. . . And I called 911. . . They said an officer was on the way and they had multiple calls. We finally got to a point where the freeway divides and didn't see her car so we thought she went the other way. . .no such luck . . Suddenly she was behind us in the HOV lane honking and waving at us to move . . .but we couldn't . . .no where to go but straight (we had 3 lanes).. . So I called 911 again. . .holy moley. . . I thought she was going to ram us. . .! I was on the line a while with the 911 operator. . .another cop was on the way. . .even as she tried to pass us (we were in the left lane) on the left side where there's a barrier wall. Finally . . .ahead of us . . A cop just waiting for us to get there. She whipped into the middle lane and almost hit a car and he pulled out behind us . . flipped on his lights and she pulled back into the HOV in front of the cop! Then cut over and kept driving with him behind her. . .she finally pulled over. . On an on ramp and almost hit the car there . . .when they all stopped. Whew! The officer just called and said they had her in jail. . . And oh by the way the reason we thought she went the other way was because she actually hit another car behind us back where the freeway divides! I'm seeing the word "felony" in her future for the hit and run - just hope no one was hurt. The officer is going to call back tomorrow. That's totally crazy!!!

OMG! She must have been high or drunk - or on the phone. Thank God you're all OK, and hopefully, so are the people who were in the car she hit.

Wow, you poor thing! I am so glad that you are okay! She must have been on something or just crazy. I'm glad the cops got her.

I'm just glad you're OK and she didn't hit anyone really badly and injure them/cause a pile-up.

It doesn't sound as if she was on the phone, does it? More like drunk or high.

I bet you were jangled for hours, were you?

Holy geez!! I'm glad you're okay. Yeah, something wrong upstairs. That sounds like more than the phone. Maybe the phone AND under the influence of something.

Wow how scary!!! Im glad you are okay!!! I cant believe she only hit one car.

I was just on 95 last week and it took us an hour to get from DC to Woodbridge at 9:00pm because of construction.

Yes I was! It took me a long time to stop fretting about it. . . the officer is supposed to call today, I guess to get more info or whatever, so I'm going to check to see if the people/person in the car she it is OK. . . I sure hope so!

Isn't that crazy??? and it's going to get worse as they start putting in all those overpasses going down 95 (from the HOV). . . I'm dreading it!

That stinks Marty!!! But it will be nice when it is finished!!

I used to go that way when I would head home to Chesapeake but now I use 77 through WV to 64. A lot less traffic!!
