The I-55 Exit Is A Pain in the Ass


The scene of the crime.
  • The scene of the crime.
Two motorists were tooling eastbound on I-44 between 8:25 and 8:55 p.m. last night when the driver heard "a loud popping sound" at the I-55 south exit. According to the police report, the driver exited the highway and discovered three bullet holes in the vehicle -- and one extra hole in his female passenger's rump.

You'd think the driver would have reported a piercing scream to go with that loud popping sound, but that's not mentioned in the incident summary. The woman received treatment at an area hospital, and there's no suspect known at this time.

Keep your heads down out there, and watch your ass when merging.
