Good Old Kentucky: Thanks again for the blog material.

From my lovely hometown news: 

Police in Rockcastle County said Monday that a road rage incident Monday morning between two elderly brothers that began on southbound I-75 ended up with accidents that involved four vehicles.

The incident began at about 9:20 a.m. when State Police in London received a report from an off-duty KSP trooper of two vehicles involved in what appeared to be a car chase on I-75 southbound in Rockcastle County

. Police say a white van operated by Clyde White, 78, of Corbin was chasing a blue van operated by Lawrence White, 82, of Lexington when both vehicles exited the interstate at exit 62. The white van was seen crashing into the blue van multiple times as they traveled southbound on KY 461 at speeds reportedly in excess of 100 mph.

As the two vehicles neared US 150, the driver of the white van used his vehicle to force the blue van into a white utility van parked on the southbound shoulder. This parked van was owned by Direct TV and occupied by Dakota McWhorter of Waco, KY, who sustained no injuries.

Both occupants of the blue van sustained injuries and were transported from the scene by EMS and air ambulance. The passenger of the blue van is identified as Dorothy Whitaker, 83, of Richmond. She remained in critical condition Monday afternoon. Lawrence White was treated and released.

Police say Clyde White fled the scene of the crash but impacted a tractor-trailer operated by James Langford, of Tennessee and owned by Big G Express, Inc. of Shelbyville, Tennessee. This vehicle remained in service and the operator was not injured.

The motive for this incident remains under investigation and Clyde White, Lawrence White, and Dorothy Whitaker were identified as siblings.
Clyde White was arrested and charged with two counts of attempted murder and two counts of wanton endangerment. He is being held in the Rockcastle County Detention Center.

 What the effing eff??? Are you serious?? This 78 year old guy and this 82 year old guy driving 100 mph+, running each other off the roads, running into innocent people??? 

I swear to God, my boys better not be behaving like this when they are old men. Guess sibling wars never really end, do they?? 

Anyways... as always, only in Kentucky. Sigh.
