The Lord works in mysterious ways

Well, so they say. But I'm pretty sure His work doesn't include telling nutjobs like this guy to try to kill random people:
A man who rammed his truck into a woman's vehicle on a highway early Friday told authorities he crashed into her while going more than 100 mph because God told him "she needed to be taken off the road."

The truck rear-ended the car on U.S. Highway 281, both vehicles spun across a median then came to a stop along a barrier in the opposite lanes. Both drivers suffered only minor injuries.

"He just said God said she wasn't driving right, and she needed to be taken off the road," Bexar County Sheriff's Office spokesman Kyle Coleman said in the online edition of the San Antonio Express-News. "God must have been with them, 'cause any other time, the severity of this crash, it would have been a fatal."
Now, the guy who decided God had told him to go all "ramming speed" on some poor, innocent woman didn't have any drugs or alcohol in his system, so the authorities have ordered a psychiatric evaluation. That sounds like a prudent move to me.
