Not only that but the article is another example of the abysmal standards of reporting that passes for "journalism" these days. Who needs any real details? Just another blood and death lurid headline used to forward whatever agenda the publisher and editors want to push.
Last fall some old woman did the same - only she was armed with a pitchfork. Same results, too.
WTF is with people who believe it to be their "job" to police the rest of the country? These are the same people who will pull-into the passing lane and "park" there in order to "slow down them crazies out there on the highway" (and run at 5mph below the limit).
Oldfcuk; I have a posthumous tip for you: DON'T F'N STEP IN FRONT OF A MOVING VEHICLE. Oh wait - you already discovered that's a poorly-devised and executed (no pun intended) plan to slow down the neighbor's kid..................
Another tip for you backroad police-in-training: Don't throw objects at cars you believe to be speeding - it's a little Felony known as "Assault".
