    Default Road rage - does it burn you up?

    The article - http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/new...cle4804007.ece.

    It was the ultimate expression of road rage. A furious woman driver died after ramming another vehicle and spinning her wheels so fast that her own car burst into flames.

    Serena Sutton-Smith, 54, burnt to death after refusing to get out of her Vauxhall Nova as she sat with her foot flat on the accelerator.

    She spun the wheels so fast that her tyres disintegrated and the metal rims sent a shower of sparks into the engine, igniting the brake fluid and setting the car on fire.

    Appalled onlookers urged her to get out of the car as the flames licked around her but she told them to “F*** off”, an inquest in Gloucester was told.
    Hot under the collar?

    ^That adds quite a bit to the story.

    I'm not sure whether to call this road rage or an angry suicide. In any case, I'm glad that she eliminated herself from the human gene pool.

    “The heat was getting more and more intense and the flames were growing. I could no longer see inside. There was nothing that could be done to help the person inside.
    A baseball bat in her face would have helped.

    This is a response to the idea of a suicide by burning out until the expression became literal?

    She should have been burned slowly in there and she still didn't go out? >_<

    this is beyond road rage. It must be something else

    ^ Second page...

    The inquest heard that Ms Sutton-Smith, who had previously worked behind the bar at a working men’s club in Ashton sub Edge, had a history of erratic behaviour and suffered from bipolar disorder.
