BELIEVERS in imaginary gods do incredibly stupid and dangerous things.
A Pennsylvanian woman – Nadejda Reilly, 31 – escaped uninjured after deliberately crashing her car into an oncoming vehicle to test her faith in God – and, according to police, expressed no remorse for the injuries cause to the people in the other car.
An investigator said Reilly told him she had been driving around for a few hours, waiting for “a calling from God”.
When the Almighty failed to provide that call, Reilly decided to galvanise him into action by driving into the oncoming car on Route 93 near Weatherly, Carbon County, on January 7.
Wrote trooper Bruce Balliet in an arrest affidavit.
Reilly related God took care of her by not having her injured. Reilly expressed no concerns or remorse for the victims. Reilly also stated she did not care if the other people were injured because God would have taken care of them.
The two people in the other vehicle were taken to a hospital for treatment of injuries, Balliet wrote.
An online court docket indicated her $50,000 bail was revoked last Wednesday.
