close call

So I was leaving work yesterday going down the street (4 lanes).

Imagine lanes as such

1 | 2 | 3 | 4

lane 3 and 4 lead to the highway, but 4 curves completley out

1 | 2 | 3

10 feet later lane 2 & 3 combine

1 | 2

What happened was that I was driving in lane 2.
Some idiot in a PT Cruiser from lane 3 decides he doesn't want to wait for cars in front of him to turn into the freeway so that he can go forward.
So, he cuts (instantly) into lane 2, fifteen feet in front of me. Note I'm going about 40.

So I swerve to the left (instinct) and then realize that there's cars in lane 1, so basically I end up driving right in the middle of lane 1 & 2 with a dodge pickup truck 3 inches on my left and the idiot's PT Crusier 3 inches on my right.

We ride like this for about 30-40 feet and then the idiot finally moves out of the way so that the pickup truck and I can seperate.

Thank god my car is thin
