Death brushed by twice in fifteen seconds last Friday, on Rt. 70. A minivan in the right lane got squeezed between a semi and an onramping car, lost control and swerved across my lane just in front of me and went into the central berm. Then, in braking to avoid them, I slowed down enough that the semi behind me nearly ran me over. Could have been a quick end, but no one was hurt either time. Still, it felt like a near thing.
