Remember the story of the nurse’s aide who left a man lodged in her windshield to die in her garage? Who would have thought anyone could be so heartless? From the New York Times:
Ms. Mallard’s lawyer, Jeff Kearney, said Ms. Mallard was just one exit from her home, so she kept driving with ”a body entirely in her car, the head in the floorboard, legs going in directions that no one thought humanly possible.”
Ms. Mallard stopped briefly and tried to get Mr. Biggs off her car, but when she could not, she drove about a mile to her home and called a friend to pick her up. The friend later told Ms. Mallard to call 911, the prosecutor said.
”Chante refused because she didn’t want her parents to know what she’d done and didn’t want to go to jail,” Ms. Jack said.
Mr. Kearney said that after his client pulled into her garage and lowered the door, she sat in the car and cried, repeatedly apologizing to Mr. Biggs, who was moaning.
Mr. Biggs, 37, was found dead the next day, his body dumped in a park.
Now, there’s this, from USA Today:
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — A motorist hit two pedestrians, then drove home with one of the bodies lodged in his windshield, police said. The man in the windshield died.
One pedestrian was found lying on a street, critically injured, but police said the second victim remained lodged in Warrichaiet’s windshield while he drove seven blocks home and parked in his garage…
Warrichaiet called police about 5:40 a.m. Monday, reporting that he’d been in an accident and thought he hit someone, authorities said. Police Lt. David Wesely said investigators didn’t know what happened in the six hours between the crash and the man’s call to police.
This is a further sign that we’re living in what the Bible calls the last days. In his second letter to Timothy, Paul wrote that in the last days people would be, among other things, lovers of themselves and inhuman. The actions of these two drivers epitomize those traits. God, may your mercy come quickly to meet us, for we are in desperate need.
