Karma Slaps Rating: 8 out of 10
This is an old story dating back from January 2001.The place is New Mexico USA. We all know that if you cross a busy road during the night wearing only dark clothing then you might get a slap from Karma.
If you decide to ride a push scooter down the centre lane of a major road wearing dark clothing in the middle of the night then a Karma Slap is a given.
This is exactly what happened to an unidentified 18-year-old man. 9 PM on the 25th of January 2001 a driver of a pickup truck spotted the man scooting along the centre lane at the last minute and swerved trying to avoid him. Unfortunately the man was caught by the wing mirror of the pickup truck.
The scooter driver was not wearing a helmet and hit the pavement causing severe head injuries of which he died from.
Karma Slapped this man with the most severe slapping – death.
After the incident Police Sgt Brian McCutcheon warned others that riding a scooter down a busy street after dark was ‘a very bad idea’ and ‘extremely unsafe.’
It is a sad state of affairs when the police have to warn people not to do something as dangerous as pushing a scooter down the middle of a street with big powerful heavy cars and trucks rumbling by all the time!
Karma Slapped this fool good and proper. As this act of stupidity ended with death but was not outrageously stupid – anyone could have done this really – it has been rewarded a Karma Slaps rating of 8 out of 10.
