That traffic in southern California can be absolutely brutal. It's not just that you have to be careful, but you have to always be wary of the other unpredictable drivers that roam the highways and byways. You never know when someone will cut you off. Just ask Pete Carroll.
According to Scott Wolf in the LA Daily News, the rock-star coach was simply minding his own business, cruising through Malibu on the Pacific Coast Highway Tuesday evening, when suddenly:
"I was in the fast lane and the cop came from the slow lane and pulled right in front of me to make a U-turn," Carroll said. "(My car) got hammered."
That's right, a cop. Apparently it was an LA County Sheriff who ruined Carroll's evening. Luckily there were no injuries, and everyone is OK. Carroll even attended a high school football camp the following day. The worst thing to come out of it was Carroll having to remain at the scene for a few hours while everything was wrapped up.
What's a little odd here isn't just a police car ramming Carroll, but according to the article, the Malibu sheriff station was completely unaware of the incident. Wouldn't you think the sheriff station would know if one of their own was involved in totaling Pete Carroll's car?
