TmPatchMonday afternoon it was announced by the California Highway Patrol that the 19-year-old man from Tennessee faulted for triggering multiple crashes on the 15 Freeway in Temecula over the weekend claimed he was being chased by zombies.Jerimiah Hartline is suspected of stealing a 2007 Freightliner three-axle tractor truck from the I-15 Rainbow Commercial Vehicle Enforcement Facility on Saturday evening, just  moments before he triggered a series of crashes on the busy interstate, according to CHP Officer Nathan Baer.

“He was arrested at the crash scene and appeared to be in an altered state, claiming he was being chased by zombies,” Baer said.It was originally believed that two men were involved in the big rig theft that was reported around 6 p.m. Saturday, but now officers say Hartline was the only one. According to the CHP report, the trailers hauled by the stolen  Freightliner weas fully loaded with strawberries that spilled onto the  freeway during the crash. It took seven hours before the freeway was  able to be reopened.

Whenever I am on a meth binge, I never feel like  I have enough strawberries either. The article never exactly mentions meth as the culprit, but what else could explain this?  If the kid was high as a kite, there is no need for an explanation. If he had been around others doing meth, maybe he really tought they had turned into zombies. Either way if he really believed  zombies were on the loose, then we can only assume he had the best of intentions for the strawberries.
