    Black Mitsubishi Lancer with a loud exhaust? I was tailgated by one the last time I was in Eureka, going down Buhne to the doctor’s office. Little driver sitting low behind the wheel, cap pulled down over his/her face. Is there more than one in Eureka….

  • Those zombies walk right out in front of cars constantly, I think they want to be hit, free and easy money….sad..real sad..

    • [edit]
      I witnessed this happen and that car was driving at a very high rate of speed, hit the woman, didn’t attempt to stop and fled the scene. Zombie or not, she didn’t deserve that. It was a truamatic thing to witness.
