    What exactly happened? Those things don't go fast enough to jump any significant distance, though it looks like they broke the knuckles and lost the front tires a good distance back...

        I sense a trend emerging.

        Woman Allegedly Drives SUV on Runway
        Tuesday, January 29, 2008
        (01-29) 16:01 PST Grand Junction, Colo. (AP) --

        Authorities say a car crashed through a fence at Grand Junction Regional Airport and drove onto a runway before it got stuck atop electrical equipment.

        No planes were taking off or landing when the incident occurred at about 3 a.m. Monday, the Transportation Security Administration said.

        Jamie L. Bowden was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and other counts, police said. No phone number could be found for Bowden, and it wasn't known whether she had an attorney.

        Airport manager Rex Tippett said Bowden's car went off a road and came "barreling through the fence and just kept on going."

        TSA spokesman Sterling Payne called the incident "isolated" and said Grand Junction authorities are in charge of the investigation.

        A Federal Aviation Administration official says the agency wasn't aware of the incident.

        Grand Junction is about 190 miles west of Denver.

          I got on the ramp at TOL once... was tempted to go joy-riding but didn't feel like losing my ticket and spending the next 20 years of my life behind bars.

            But it beats dying after being ejected from a car at high velocity, suffering some truly hideous physical rearrangements along the way for your family to remember you by, and killing 4 of your friends at the same time.

            If it wasn't for the people left behind I'd say it was natural selection at its finest.
