A woman in Ft. Wayne is in jail after running over a motorcyclist because, she said, God told her out of the blue that he would take over the driving. I think she may be taking that “God is my co-pilot” bumper sticker just a little bit too literally.
Police later found the driver of the car, Prionda Hill, at the Rally’s several blocks down the road from where she hit Oliveri. She told police “she was driving and out of no where God told her that he would take it from here and she let go of the wheel and let him take it.” She’s now facing several charges.
Unfortunately, the victim’s fiance and some of the people who helped care for him are no less irrational:
Several retired nurses were first on the scene to help Oliveri. He was taken to Lutheran Hospital. He said the bruises and road rash on his back look like a heart and angel wings. Oliveri’s fiance doesn’t think that’s any sort of coincidence, either.“When he came into the emergency room, the bruise on the top of his back was shaped like a heart. When we got him up to his room, his bruise on his back, and even now, is shaped like angel wings. Even the nurses said that. His guardian angel was watching over him, and she gave him her wings. Then she went on vacation, because he’s put her through the ringer,” Oliveri’s fiance said.
Wait, what? He — the guy who got run over — put his guardian angel through the ringer? And this guardian angel didn’t do anything at all to stop this guy from nearly being killed, but she did go out of her way to make sure the bruise was shaped like wings? What the fuck is the point of having a guardian angel if that’s all they’re gonna do? People are really weird sometimes.
