Default Crazy People on H69

I was riding south on 69 with a friend about 5 yesterday evening. I'm guessing 20 miles or so North of Kountze . We were behind a SUV running about 70 when they slammed on the brakes and then dodged right. That revealed a very large black woman standing in the middle of the south bound lane and facing away. Thankfully we were a safe enough distance behind them that we could slam on the brakes.

As the SUV skidded around her she snapped out of her trance and jumped... well moved as quick as she could into the north bound lane directly in the path of an 18 wheeler who had seen the situation develop and managed to miss her.

I saw she had something in her hand. We were almost at a complete stop when she turned around. She was holding a sawed off pump shotgun with a pistol grip. We got the heck out of there.

Crazy.

My son said a woman tried to jump in front of a 1 ton pickup in Whitesboro yesterday. When the 1 ton missed her, she tried jumping in front of my son!

Think the cops ended up getn her.

Should've stopped and got her number. She sounds like quite the catch, and I'm sure she's available.

Back in November, when I went to White Oak WMA, on my way home I was driving though some town, don't know what the name of the town was, I am not familiar with that part of the state at all. First time I had ever been up there. I think I was in either Jacksonville or Palestine.
As I was leaving town, going probably 70+. The road is undivided, in that section it's paved all the way across, with a turning lane in the middle. With two lanes going north and two south bound lanes. I was going south.

I saw a woman walking along the side of the road, heading north. I was in th right lane, as I got close to her, I started to move over to the left some to be nice. As I did, she just started talking walking across the road, like I was not there. So I swerved left and she kept going across in front of me. I wound up in the he center turning lane and was about to go into th incoming north bound lanes, trying to not hit her. I was standing on the brakes harder and harder, as I realized I was probably going to hit her or roll my truck trying to dodge her. I made it around her without hitting her. As I went past her she looked at me, the look on her face, shocked me she was furious. She was extremely mad about something. As I was rolling past her. I looked up and saw she just stopping in the middle of the left south bound lane, turned around and casually walked back towards the side of the road, heading north. I was shaking at that point. I could tell she was still very mad about something. I had a long trip home and did not need to get involved with whatever was going on with her. I am 100% certain she tried to commit suicide.

I was at a friend's ranch in Jack County fast asleep when I got a call at 2:00 am about a family emergency that required me to jump in the truck and drive home. I was on a dark lonely stretch of 199 about 3:00am when I topped a hill and there were three guys in the middle of the road in a 3-way fist fight. I had no time to stop - just swerved to miss them and almost rolled into the ditch. I stopped and looked back and they acted like they didn't even notice me - still kicking and punching each other like crazy people. Really odd because there was no parked vehicle and no houses for several miles. Always wondered what was going on there.

Was driving in from working offshore many moons ago. About 2 am two pickups passed me up hauling butt and swerving all over the road. The truck in the front had something fall out of the back. I hit my brakes and swerved to miss it. When my headlights finally settled on the object it was a man that had fallen out and landed on what was left of his head. The truck had attempted to rob some eqpt out of a farmers shop and he heard them. He started shooting and took off after them when the guy in the back fell out. I came within inches of running over a basically lifeless body. Needless to say he was
D O A when he arrived at the nearest hospital from what I was told.

20 miles north of Kountze would but you around Warren. Lots of good folks there but some pretty interesting folks there also.

Lol. It might be.

Seriously though I don't think suicide was her intent. She had a shotgun. Maybe she was trying to stop us and borrow a couple shells.

I actually presume there was someone else she was after as she was looking south west and seemed totally unaware she was in traffic until the car swerved around her.

We saw noone else but if she was after me, I would be hard to see too .

Uh oh I had to read that again my mom lives in Warren is on the thick side and some times a little volatile.Just doesn’t exactly match that profile.But yea meth and crazy nonsense is getting extremely common in those parts.I’ve hunted Warren area almost 20 years now and had some odd theft over the years.
