MassliveA Worcester County corrections officer is expected to be OK after his cruiser slammed into an abandoned Jeep parked on Interstate 290 early Saturday. Worcester County Sheriff’s Office Superintendent David Tuttle told the Telegram and Gazette that Officer Peter Campo was “bruised up and sore, but…will be OK,” following the 6:15 a.m. crash near Exit 13 on I-290 East. Campo was reportedly on his way to work at the Worcester County Jail and House of Correction with his dog when his Ford Crown Victoria hit the rear of a Jeep Wrangler parked in the middle travel lane, according to Tuttle. The Jeep, which was reportedly uninsured and unregistered, had run out of gas, Tuttle said. Campo had been driving around 60 mph at the time of the crash.

There are some grimy ass people in this city. What kind of asshole abandons his car in the middle of the highway? I’ve run out of gas before, I know how this works. Your car doesn’t just suddenly stop in the middle of the road. You can coast over to the shoulder and put your hazards on. It’s really not that hard. But abandoning your car in the middle of the highway when it’s raining and dark out, and not even bothering to put the hazards on is just a dick move. Naturally the Jeep was uninsured and unregistered, and likely the dickbag who abandoned it will be driving another uninsured and unregistered car by the end of the week.

Anyway, I figured this was one situation where we all could come together to blame the asshole who left his car in the middle of the road. But as usual, Facebook has shown us all just how stupid some people are:

Well, first of all Alyssa, the car was parked right after the ever-so-fun Holy Cross turn on 290 East. So no, he would not have had a chance to see it. It’s funny that Alyssa would criticize someone else for hitting something directly in front of them without seeing it first. Ya know, because just two weeks ago she was posting about her fun experience of walking directly into a wall:

Oops!!!

Any vehicle can suddenly become disabled on the road? Huh? Have you ever driven a car Michelle? Cars don’t just suddenly go from 60 to 0. There’s a gradual period where a vehicle begins to lose velocity. A responsible person would use that time to guide their vehicle to the shoulder, rather than leave it in the middle of the road. An asshole would leave it in the MIDDLE FREAKING lane. But please tell me more about how we should be thankful that this thoughtless individual wasn’t in the vehicle and thus wasn’t hurt. Because their well being is the first thing a normal person would think about.

We’ll give Josephy Cyr a break for this ridiculous comment. But only because he once saved France from terrorism.

Yea Brenda, that’s it. The guy was drunk on his way to work. Old people really need to stay off the Internet. And the roads.

Oh look, it’s the assholes you get stuck behind for 20 straight miles because they refuse to go a single mph over the speed limit on anything west of Worcester on Route 9. Anyone who has a problem with someone driving 60 mph on 290 can go ahead and never, ever drive again. You are literally satan. Although, I might end up regretting typing those words because Sean Wilmot will totally kick my ass!!!

Luckily Turtleboy was NOT the only one who noticed this insanity:

What if he hit a pedestrian? A pedestrian standing in the middle of 290 while it’s raining and dark out? Well, considering that it’s illegal to go for a Saturday sociable walk on an interstate highway, I’d probably say that it would be the fault of the pedestrian if they ended up becoming 290 roadkill. Just sayin.

A commenter also posted this picture with the following caption:

Here’s an example of a barely visible dark colored car, facing the wrong way on my side of the road with no lights on. At night, with drizzling rain and behind a street lamp. Luckily I saw this before I hit it, mine would have been at must slower speed, but can you see the car clearly?

At first I thought he was talking about the silver car under the light. I can clearly see that car. But when you look closer you see the dark vehicle, which despite the proximity to the lights, is barely visible. Now imagine coming across it in the middle of the highway when you’re least expecting it.

Anyway, the knee-jerk reaction of some people to blame the LEO and make excuses for the asshole who left it in the road is basically where our country is at right now. So many simple minded dicksticks out there who would rather blame the victims than the people perpetrating the crime. Pray for America.

    Go to the MRMV site, we offer two approved driving courses. Retraining and a defensive driving courses. Twelve hours in total, looks like you meet the criteria for both. I’m sure the Sheriff’s Dept. would approve.

    Hope the guard was given a drug test and not a pass on the accident investigation.

    The sheriff and his deputys are the oldest law enforcement in whats left of are great nation. In a lot of states, even are own have the same or more authority as all other law enforcement.

    Did the person who left the jeep in the middle of the road not leave/put on his hazard lights. Isn’t that what you do when your car breaks down??

  • Questionable ?
    November 1, 2016 at 8:45 am

    The jail guards, many drive at high-rates of speed. Not all of course but enough to be noticed. The driver of the broken down vehicle, may not have been able to move his vehicle from the highway. I would bet the jail guard was speeding on this one. Not sure, but have just seen so many of the State Cop wannabees doing that in the past.

      You are so full of shit Questionable ?. DOC cars are the only ones I see doing the speed limit. “State Cop wannabees” is another misnomer, like the troopers are the end-all be-all of criminal justice and everyone that isn’t a trooper is a wannabe. They are two separate things; you sir/madam are an asshole. I hope you get a double fine ticket in a work zone from a real State Trooper for your epic dooshnozzlery.

    Only a real skid mark leaves a car in the middle of the highway. Anyone apologizing for it is a bigger stain and has never come upon a broken down car at night with its lights out. It shows up real quick and that is when it is in breakdown lane. Unregistered etc, fill in the blanks.

    $50 it’s an African. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve seen a car stopped in the middle of a toll Plaza and every single time it’s an African. They make Asians look like expert drivers.

    Who would leave a vehicle in the middle of the highway! An idiot. We have the WORST driver’s in Massachusetts located right here in Worcester. My dog and I were almost hit 3 times on Saturday just trying to drive home.
    When you are at a stop sign you’re SUPPOSED to STOP….TURN YOUR HEAD… And look! Not talk on the phone and keep going. When someone has he right of way you trying to inch out from a side street isn’t going to work!!! Let me add that the 3 men that almost killed me and my dog were African Americans. I guess they might have seen an older white woman and figured I would stop. Well next time guys you might need to get a new Infinite, cause I’m getting pissed

      Before I die, I’m going to get an old, used, dump truck and drive it around. When people do stupid shit I’m just going to hit the horn and keep the foot on the gas. And as TB sometimes says, there will be no fucks given.

    So you know why contractors blast around in pickups with the snow blade during all seasons. Main South is like going back to a 70’s-early 80’s post-apocalypse B movie.

    If you drive around Worcester at night you need a vehicle with a plow like a locomotive cow-catcher, just like The Humongous.

    You can’t teach commen sense. Clearly this 20yo has none. Glad the officer is ok.

    I’m siding with the officer on this one. The POS who was driving an unregistered and uninsured vehicle is automatically at fault just for that reason. I wouldn’t even listen to the perp’s side of the story. I don’t give a damn if his Jeep just flat out stalled in the middle of the road. Register your car and get some insurance like any normal decent person!

    The IIHS just did a report on the ineffectiveness of headlights on cars/trucks/suv’s….If he had his low beams on in the rain and it’s a winding road…he would have about a liberal 150 feet of visibility…and the stopping distance at 60mph is over 180Ft and further on wet pavement…If the parked car had no flashers on then he didn’t stand a chance…Would these same people blame themselves if they hit a spare tire or a cinder block sitting in the middle of the road? An abandoned car in the road is oversized littering…

    It’s scary to think that there are so many stupid people out there. And to think that they are probably registered voters who can one day serve on a jury.

      Or that they are your state and national representatives, interacting with competitors against YOUR interests…and all they care about is where they are going to dinner, when’s the next rake in, and who can I bang next.

  • Duke Westwood

    Don’t call it unregistered!! It’s an undocumented Jeep. And, pfft, who needs insurance…

    And the driver wasn’t unlicensed, he’s an undocumented motorist. (Probably an undocumented migrant as well, so don’t be racist.)

    Why do people expect cops to be superhuman? I guarantee that if any of these morons had come upon the same situation, they would have plowed into the jeep as well.
