Had a meeting in a town about 10 miles from here last night so I thought I'd take the wing. Now here in southern Minn. I-90 is fairly flat and straight and not alot of traffic. I was about to my off ramp, at this point I-90 has a slight curve and small incline,I saw traffic on the other side of I-90 but that is normal, when all of a sudden I realized there was a car on my side and coming at me in the passing lane. I was in the left lane and got passed him OK. After thinking about it later I realized I had lost a second or two of time to react. First there was disbelief that a car was going the wrong way on the Interstate out in the middle of nowhere. Second what lane was he in and what was he going to do? Now remember we were closing on each other at 70 MPH each. By the time I got everything sorted out we were 300FT apart. My point is I can see how people hit head on in a situation like that, I always thought you would see them and just get out of their way. Oh I failed to mention it was 7:10 pm and I had the sun in my eyes which didn't help much either. Called 911 and by the time I got 1 mile down the road I met a county deputy headed for I-90 lights and siren on at a high rate of speed. Hope they got him before he killed somebody.
