When a woman who thinks ‘Obamacare’ is a web site, Carrie Underwood, recorded “Jesus Take the Wheel,” this probably wasn’t what she meant.
Anthony Oliveri, a motorcyclist, was riding through Fort Wayne, Indiana when he was inexplicably run down by a car that swerved into his lane. “I had just taken off from the light, and it was a nice 70 degree night that night. I just left from the light there and headed down the road. The last thing in my thought process was anything like this. Then, it just happened. I remember it happened so fast,” Oliveri said.
“It” is a reference to Pridona Hill, the driver of the car that suddenly swerved into his lane, running over not only Oliveri’s bike, but Oliveri himself. “I remember it happened and I didn’t quite know what was going on for a split second. As I grabbed the handle bars as the bike was losing control and I looked back around my left shoulder, all I see is her tire and the left bumper getting ready to run my face over. Literally I was inches from that bumper and I just said to myself today is the day I die. I just shut my eyes and said if this is the way that God wants to do it then I guess that this is the way we’re going to do it,” Oliveri said.
“She rolled over the bike and she rolled over me and everything and I just figured that was it. Then, when I felt the pain of my bike of sliding on the back of the road. I was like, wait, I feel pain, that means I’m still alive. I look up and look down at my feet and think well my legs are still connected. When I felt the pain as funny as it is, at that point in time, I was happy because not ten seconds earlier I thought I was dead. At that point I was just ecstatic to be alive to be honest with you,” he added.
“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 wringer,” Oliveri’s fiance told Wane.com.
This pattern of bruising is fitting, given the reason the car swerved to hit him. Police eventually located the driver, Hill, at a Rally’s several blocks down the road. She told police that as she was driving, “out of nowhere God told her that he would take it from here and she let go of the wheel and let him take it,” according to officers. Then she just kept driving.
Now, she faces several charges, including leaving the scene of a crime and criminal recklessness with a deadly weapon. It will be interesting to see her use the “God did it” defense in court.
