(snip) During a two-minute long YouTube video, Goodenough described the incident from his point of view.(snip) When Google Maps reportedly alerted them of a potential accident at an intersection, Goodenough said they rerouted the directions and took the next available on-ramp onto Interstate 225.
'We did notice that there were Black Lives Matter protesters on all sides of the street trying to stop traffic.' said Goodenough.
'We then avoided any pedestrians in the roadways and continued onto the freeway. There was no police barricade that stopped us.'(snip)
Goodenough noted that demonstrators were on the side of the road, as well as standing in the middle of the highway.
He claimed protesters began throwing 'projectiles' at the vehicle and 'trying to get in front of the vehicle with bats to damage the vehicle.'
Goodenough said they avoided pedestrians with the Jeep, but a white pickup truck began driving next to them and crashed into their car.
Sebastian Sassi, the driver of the white pickup truck, later told the Colorado Sentinel that he intervened because he believed the blue Jeep was going to hit and possibly kill demonstrators that day.
Goodenough confirmed that claim in the YouTube video and the white pickup truck 'intentionally crashed into us and described us as having murderous intent for going towards airport.'
'Once this white pickup truck did crash into us, a man with a bat then approached the vehicle and began swinging at the vehicle,' he said.
'We then proceeded to speed off to avoid any potential damage to ourselves and the vehicle.'
Goodenough said the Jeep sped off because the driver wanted to avoid any damage to the vehicle and themselves. That's when a gunmen opened fire on the highway and fired off seven rounds.

Maps needs to add riots to their alerts like they do wrecks and traffic slowdowns ahead
Except Google will probably direct you into a hotspot
My GPS regularly attempts to plunge me off of mountain sides.
I don’t trust it.
/Google maps is the devil
>> Interstate 225
Time enough to send in federal troops to protect our FEDERAL highway system when the local crooked constables side with Communists over commercial trucking and the right of freedom of travel for citizens and emergency vehicles.
QUIT PLAYING ON THE FREEWAY AND CRYING WHEN YOU GET HIT
Charge the driver of the white pickup and bury the guy who shot at the Jeep under the jail.
Yeah, Google knows everywhere you’ve been. They know you’ve been to Cabela’s or your local gun shop and a regular basis so in a riot, they direct you right into the middle of it. However, those who go to whorehouses, known drug-infested areas and Democratic Party offices will be directed to safety.

That’s deadly force. Sue the State and sue the country for permitting this a$$hole driver to deliberately smash into them potentially causing permanent spine and neck injury.
I’ll bet Sebastian Sassi would NOT use lethal force if a jihadist was cutting people up with a machete or stabbing them and slitting their throats with a knife.
Mine is always a bit late on directions when going through a round-about
“Look kids...Big Ben!”
Google says “there are no riots, comrade”
Parliament.... how in the heck do you get out of this thing
Self defenders need to keep mouths closed and lawyer up.
WTF can’t BLM or any other of these groups be sued for damage?
Jeep is for the highway, pedestrians aren’t.
Apple Maps seems to do a bit better; except when it tries to tell me a bike path through the woods is a full-sized road.
There is a place in the outback not far from me where if you follow both Google and Apple you and everyone in your vehicle will die.
They have the road going off a 400 foot cliff. I have submitted corrections to both but in 7 years neither has fixed it.
GPS doesn’t stand for going places safely.
LOL about the GPS reason for getting on the interstate. I’ve been using GPS since 2004 and have had it do the same kind of thing to me on several occasions. It’s science, sometimes very inaccurate science, not magic, and I always keep a dead tree map with me when I’m on a long trip just to avoid this kind of trouble. Younger, less experienced drivers often don’t and periodically find themselves led into the strangest places by “infallible, accurate” GPS.
A word that now chills my blood...
[because it means I dodged the death it had planned for me and is looking for an “alternate route”]
My Garmin would say that with a British accent that sounded more snippy with each wrong turn I made.
