Man Sentenced In Time Travel DWI

terrance rudesIt’s not uncommon for DWI offenders to come up with bizarre stories blaming everything but alcohol on a crash resulting from drunk driving, but one man claims he was attempting to time travel when he crashed into another car. Terrance Rudes, the driver who was attempting to time travel, was sentenced to 1 1/2 to 3 years after being convicted of vehicular assualt. After the crash, Rudes admitted to police that he was drunk and high on Lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD), which is known for its psychological effects, including an altered sense of time.

In September of 2012, Rudes was driving down Church Avenue in Ballston Spa, New York when he crossed over the center lane and intentionally crashed head on into another vehicle in an attempt to time travel. When police interrogated him, Rudes said, “I thought I could time travel and drive through (the other car)… I wanted to see what would happen“. Fortunately, the other driver that Rudes crashed into was not killed, but did sustain serious injuries. It would probably be best that Terrance Rudes not be allowed to drive on the road period, however, after serving his prison sentence he will be required to install an ignition interlock device in his vehicle for 3 years.
