"Speed and alcohol were not factors in the incident, Probus said. The van’s driver is a 41-year-old Culpeper woman. Charges are pending."

Charges for what?  Allowing someone else to be incredibly stupid in/on your vehicle?  I guess a suitable charge would be endangering OTHER DRIVERS on the road.

Hi,
        I knew a beautiful young woman, that died the same way, trying to hold down an inflated raft, going to a spring runoff, here in Florida!

The driver was her boyfriend, wind got under the raft and took her off with it.

Unfortunately, her head hit the curb.

Not good!

Although there is no substitute for THINKING (what is inside the head), it does illustrate the importance of a good helmet to protect the head.

Hard to believe no alcohol was involved in that event....
I always like Culpepper, had to stop every other time I came thru there for a tour of....

Chuck Miller, the founder, is a real hoot to sit and talk to....

I'm sorry, but I find great humor in some of the stupid things folks do, and also knowing it could have been avoided...
With that said, this made me snork coffee on my tablet, because many years ago the National Lampoon Radio Hour aired The Immigrants...
And knowing there are a LOT of immigrants in Culpepper, I just have to share... it seems time never changes....



Grandma... you ride up on top......


And it goes on even today..... brilliant....

Speed was most certainly a factor! Without sufficient speed there wouldn't be enough air getting under the mattress for it to go airborne.

That sound suspiciously like physics, which an awful lot of people just don't understand nor believe in.

I'll bet that the driver has a new understanding...
