ROSEVILLE, Calif. " A driver whose SUV plunged into a Northern California creek after he was startled by his hands-free cell phone device escaped the sinking vehicle by blasting out the window with a handgun. The 28-year-old man, whose name wasn't immediately available, is an armed security guard at Thunder Valley Casino, north of Sacramento. He sustained minor injuries in Sunday's accident.
A spokesman for the Roseville Fire Department said the man was traveling northbound on Industrial Avenue in Roseville when the cell phone device activated. The driver was startled and veered off the road through the guardrail. The SUV landed in Pleasant Grove Creek.
He used his gun to shoot himself out, then flagged down a passerby
Yeah, people have drowned in those situations
when thay coud not get the window or door open.
I have long considered guns to be emergency equipment,
but I had not thawt to use them in that kind of emergency. It makes sense. Thank u
That was very clever, Tico: KUDOS!
