    Dear God.

    Shocking images were released on Thursday night of two Swedish sisters throwing themselves into oncoming motorway traffic in the UK.

    The video shows the twin sisters walking along the central reservation of the M6 motorway, just outside Birmingham in central England. The duo then take a sudden plunge into oncoming traffic and the first woman is hit by a car.

    Police were called to the scene and astonishingly, while being interviewed, one of the women again tears herself away from officers and throws herself into the carriageway. The woman is struck by a truck and seriously injured.

    Soon after, the second sister repeats her twin’s actions and hurtles into traffic to be hit by a car. Despite her head-on collision with a vehicle, the sister tried to escape custody once more by again running onto the motorway.

    “You can see the damage to the vehicle,” said PC Tracey Cope, one of the officers on the scene during the BBC documentary.

    “The majority of people don’t survive collisions when they’ve had an impact like that”.

    The woman was in a highly aggressive state and attacked an officer. “Her strength was absolutely phenomenal” said PC Cope. Eventually it took a total of six members of the police to restrain her”.

    PC Paul Finlayson, also witness to the incredible events, described the most violent of the two sister to the BBC as “a seriously deranged woman”.

    The sister seriously injured by her collision with a truck was taken from the scene by air ambulance and treated in hospital for seven weeks. The second woman was also treated in hospital for minor injuries and spent a day in jail charged with assaulting an officer.

    Wow, that is disturbing to watch. I feel sorry for the guy driving the truck and the person with the smashed windshield.

    hint

    It took 6 officers to restrain one of the women...one of the women who had already flung herself into traffic repeatedly.

    Nothing a jacket with long sleeves and a locked room with padded walls wouldn't cure.

    and some serious drugs at that.

    My guess is PCP, since it's the only drug that Ive heard have crazy stories like this.
     
  10. My first guess too. Second would be a deliriant like datura innoxia or something in the vein (bella donna, deadly nightshade, ect.) .

    If that happened here in Chicago on one of our highways, they wouldn't be around to tell the tale or the cops would have shot them.

    There's a link to another vid there with a boy clearing a fence and getting a glancing blow by a bus.....

    ...must be something in the water over there.

    Funny thing....a couple of people nearby (standing on the sidewalk) just stood there as he looks to be unconscious.

    I submit that there are times and places for tasers. This would have been one. PCP or not, chances are that your muscles are going to lock up and you are going to drop.

    Wow.... sadly, the Sedins were the first thing that crossed my mind. It's getting close to hockey season.


    On a more serious note, it's scary that people can do that. I'd concur with the drugs theories, most likely PCP. I feel bad for the motorists who had vehicle damage and/or mental trauma from the incident.

    In the video, the first female cop trying to restrain one of the females appears to be attempting to use her taser.

    This would have definately been a perfect situation for their use.
