DUI Driver Jumps The Curb, Goes Airborne Into Mississippi Gas Station

A Mississippi gas station found itself under attack from an out-of-control car that flew off the road and landed dangerously close to the gas pumps.

The accident took place in Brandon, Mississippi (Rankin County) last week, and it’s been reported that the car’s driver, 24-year old Shelby Lynne May, was doing 100 mph (161 km/h) while under the influence of alcohol.

“She had overcorrected, gone into oncoming traffic, nearly had an accident there with another vehicle, crossed back over and that’s when she hit the curb and went airborne,” stated Rankin County Undersheriff, Raymond Duke. “She had an angel riding with her, that’s for sure.”

Duke told ABC News that May admitted to having several beverages at work before getting into her car. She was therefore arrested and charged with DUI, and posted a $1,500 bail last Friday morning.

The woman was indeed extremely lucky to walk away with just minor injuries. The best part however is that nobody else was hurt, neither in traffic, nor anywhere near the pumps, which by the way weren’t impacted directly by the vehicle. The car seems to have hit the support structure near the pump, which, given how things could have turned out and since no one was injured, was indeed a good way to end this crazy ride.

    And we’re all worried about driver-less cars….

    We should be more worried about making stricter DUI laws and less alcohol commercials about how much fun it is to drink and how much better it makes your life or how cool you are.

      When we have driver-less cars there’s probably gonna be so many people under the influence behind the wheel, forbid if they ever needed to take control in case of an emergency..

      Yes, I am sure that passing another law making DUI even more illegal will prevent these morons from drinking and driving… 😉

      • Auf Wiedersehen

        Not more illegal(it’s already illegal), just if you do it and get caught, the penalty is swift, severe and permanent.

        • Emoto

          Not really sure what that means. Permanent?

          • Auf Wiedersehen

            Meaning the law would be the law. No plea deals, not lesser charges…your sentence is your sentence. No reduced sentence, no time served. And losing the drivers license would be permanent. You lose it for DUI, it never comes back. Sorry you are not a responsible person. Take a bus or taxi.

    It’s no surprised that she didn’t get hurt, people who drink and drive normally survive accidents since their bodies are relaxed when their vehicle collides with something. It’s the victims who normally get hurt and die due to stiffening up their bodies or bracing for the collision. Hopefully they get her out of a car for some time and help
