The article doesn't read well, but an 18 yo ran out onto the freeway to play "chicken" and got struck by a Hilux... the collision wrote off the Hi lux. This is a clearly bright lad. http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,24063845-661,00.html Man critical after playing chicken in his underwear July 23, 2008 01:14pm A TEENAGER remains in intensive care in a critical condition after he was hit by a 4WD while playing 'chicken' on a freeway last night. The 18-year-old South Morang man is in the Royal Melbourne Hospital after he was struck by a Toyota Hilux on the Tullamarine Freeway near Flemington just before 1.30am. He had been playing "chicken'' on the freeway on ramp as a dare, when he was hit by the 4WD police said. The driver of the van, a 31-year-old man from Hillside, was taken to hospital and treated for shock. Metropolitan Ambulance Service city team manager Shaun Columbine told 3AW radio the driver was extremely distressed by the incident. â€œIt was totally unexpected," said Mr Columbine. "He was on his way home from work in the middle of the night and the young manâ€™s run out on a dare in front of his car. "He was in quite an emotionally distressed state and was lucky not to sustain injuries himself." His passenger, a 61-year-old woman, escaped injury. The vehicle was written-off by the force of the collision, police said. Mr Columbine said the 18-year-old was unconscious when paramedics arrived at the scene. They sedated him and immobilised his spine, before rushing him to the Royal Melbourne Hospital. He also had a serious head injury and a broken arm, Mr Columbine said. Police say they are dismayed at the "utter stupidity'' of the 18-year-old and say it was lucky nobody was killed.
