Careening Jihad in Washington DC

The modus operandi is reminiscent of jihadist attacks; a car is used to inflict maximum damage.  No explosion and scattered body parts this time, but the wreckage left behind caused maximum terror .  No motive is given in the article except to say that the driver of the shuttle van, Muhammad Teshale, 25 of Alexandria, VA "did it to be famous".

Famous in the eyes of Allah, perhaps?

From the Washington Post  Dec 12 by Josh White

The driver of a speeding SuperShuttle van left a trail of damaged vehicles as he fled at least six hit-and-run crashes along Interstate 66 and the Dulles Access Road on Monday morning, police said.
Virginia State Police, Arlington County police and Metropolitan Washington Airports Authority police were trying to determine what led to the series of crashes from Arlington to Dulles International Airport about 9:30 a.m.
The driver, whom police identified as Muhammad Teshale, 25, of Alexandria, was arrested outside the airport's main terminal after authorities found the damaged blue van. Teshale was charged with one count of hit and run in Fairfax County. Additional charges were pending.

Illegal lane change, changing lanes without signalling and unsafe speed, right?

"He was going at a high rate of speed...But there is no indication of motive."

Road rage, jihadist style.
