    Mistook it for a school bus, perhaps?

    Maybe he was calling 911. For the wreck that he was about to be involved in. Here’s your sign!!

    @Concerned – I missed where it said he was using a cell phone. I figured he assumed that the Road Ranger was the only emergency vehicle until it was too late. Being 25 indicates a possible lack of experience with these situations (but not anymore!)
    Praying for the young man, and for grace and good sense for all.

    Wow that’s what happens when you decide a cell phone can drive your car real smart and I hope the judge takes his cell phone and license for a long time. Almost got a trooper killed ! Let that sink in !!!!!
