This was a different one... a guy tried to carjack a few vehicles on I-84, incidentally where the speed limit is 80 mph and traffic is usually going well above that. It's not clear whether the vehicles he tried to carjack were stopped, or whether they were still in motion, but this shows sometimes the best option to avoid a carjacking is to hit the gas pedal.

...

After deputies attempted several PIT maneuvers, Conrad, who police said had a handgun, was eventually stopped in a field north of the westbound lanes of I-84 near at milepost 110 after his pickup went through a barbed- wire fence toward the interstate.

ISP said Conrad fled on foot south across westbound I-84 and into the eastbound lanes.

Sounds like they should have found treatment for him before he became a danger to himself and others. Sad because he had people who cared about him. At least he didn't take others with him like so many seem to think they have to these days. He committed suicide.

Treatment for mental illness, or just being evil? Are you aware of the difference?

I know I'M not. I'm guessing that YOU'RE not. I'm not sure that ANYone is "aware" of that thin, muddled line. Yet if a gun is being aimed at me? I don't have the time or luxury for deep psychotherapy.
