Trouble ahead
Vladimir Jadick ought to be running back to Alabama with his tail between his legs this afternoon, after plowing his pickup truck and 30-foot camper through hundreds of yards of freshly-poured concrete on an I-94 road project near Fargo.

Estimated damage: $100,000. The fine for his sticky excursion: $20.

The 62-year-old from Theodore, Ala., drove through the construction zone barricade late Wednesday night leaving 6-inch deep ruts in the still-wet concrete, state Highway Patrol Capt. Eldon P. Mehrer told the Star Tribune.

"He didn't realize he caused that kind of damage," Mehrer said. He was just "confused."

Apologetic, too, we gather. And probably happy to learn insurance will cover the cost of the damage he caused.

Go away, Vladimir. Go far away.

Um, excuse me, I'll have you know, you are completely wrong about your accusations about my uncle. Wouldn't driving through thirty feet of wet concrete splatter at least a little bit? And wouldn't there be concrete on his tires? Yet the person who woke my uncle, with a very very strict schedule because that camper he had with him was not his (which if you actually did your research you'd know) but actually a product he was on his way to delivering and he had to have it delivered by the next day. So the cop wakes up my uncle and accuses him of this, with no proof, only to find that it was the WRONG person! And I hope you are happy, my uncle has gone far away. He passed away on his birthday last year. He died of stage 4 pancreatic cancer 4 months after finding out he had it. So my advice to you? 1 Do your research!!! and 2 Be careful what you wish for!!!
