Alpaca Out of Freaking Nowhere! A dumb cluck exits the freeway at Bryant and 9th in her black 4Runner blowing the red by two or three seconds, looks like.

To no avail. The DC in the Toyota (CA 6GZU456) doesn’t notice as she neatly merges into the left hand lane at the same speed as traffic oblivious to the cold stares directed her way.
