"A new American hero is born" announces Lowering the Bar. The hero? A hitchhiker known only as "Kai," who was picked up by a driver who declared himself to be Jesus before driving his car into a utility worker.
When two women hurried over to help, the driver attacked one of them, and Kai fended him off with a hatchet.
You can also see the local news report at Lowering the Bar, which is well worth it because of Kai's dramatic reenactment. The utility worker was rushed to the hospital for surgery, but his injuries are not life-threatening.
