Man tries to kill girlfriend, gets killed instead
Call it hand of faith or plain queer luck, but this lady's lucky escape will surely redouble your own faith on poetic justice! The story: After a brawl with his girlfriend, irate (read psychopath!) man leaves her to get killed in his car parked on the rail tracks. Train flung back the car on him. Ironically enough, except him, nobody else, including his girlfriend, involved in the accident were killed. Great, right? Mike Lopez, police spokesman said this hot-headed Californian loverboy drove his car with his girlfriend to the head of a line of traffic stopped at a level crossing in the San Fernando Valley neighborhood of Sunland. Onlookers say, they were arguing massively. The brawl took an ugly turn when loverboy, pissed out of his mind and blinded by rage, parked his car on the tracks before a fast approaching 450-tonne commuter train and jumped out to flee to safety. His action left the girl with no time even to collect her scattered wits and follow suit. But, obviously! Dear ol' guardian angel must have been sitting right behind her on the back seat. The train, carrying 132 passengers and crew hit the car from behind, and it flew. And where does it land? Straight on the fleeing loverboy! And, while the man with a malicious intention, gets killed by his own car and reaches the pearly gates in the wide beyond, his girlfriend reaches the hospital in a stable condition and safely. Poetic justice reins after all, right folks?
