South Carolina and much of the East Coast has been slammed by torrential rain resulting in serious flooding. Much of the state has been shut down and the governor has declared a state of emergency. But Charlton Mcleod found a truck driver who wasn’t concerned about the weather. Just watch as this semi-truck driver daringly drives through a flooded street in Sumter, South Carolina.
Chad Walton was driving his pickup truck on the I-526 highway through South Carolina when he approached a very slow North Carolina sheriff’s squad car in the left lane.
After holding up traffic for a while at only 50 MPH, Chad decided to circumvent the cop by passing through the middle and right lane. Once he finally passed all the slow traffic, who did he see quickly pulling up on his right?
Why, it was the sheriff, who decided to pull in front of Chad and stop short, nearly causing an accident.
It’s a good think Chad caught the scene on camera, and now the video is going viral. The brand new video already stands with over a quarter million views, and has already been picked up by Live 5 News.
Peter P. explains, “The officer should have yielded to the motorist. The lane is a passing line. The fact that the officer then proceeded to pass the motorist on the right, then come over into the motorists lane and slowing down was an act of road rage.”
UPDATE: ABC 4 reports the officer has since resigned and has a much different story than the video appears to tell.
When someone decides to serve their country, people often forget the sacrifice their whole family has to endure. One such family is the Faile family from South Carolina.
Their husband and dad Sergeant First Class Scott Faile had been serving over seas for a very long time, so when the family was honored on the field at this past weekend’s Gamecocks game, they naturally became emotional when they saw Scott give a touching message on the jumbo video board.
“Fired up! Ready to go!” is probably the second most famous catch phrase of the Obama campaign, just behind “Hope and Change”. But where did the famous line come from?
In 2008, Barack Obama explained the story behind the phrase that energized the Democratic party. Now, the Obama campaign is returning to Greenwood, South Carolina to the woman behind it all, Edith S. Childs.
