Mensagem: 

Mariana, do you think "to barrel" refers to how a barrel would move, knocking down everything in its path, moving from side to side without regards for people and things in its path?  "The car came barreling up the driveway."  I have images of a car being driven fast and carelessly.  Nobody is going to stop it.  If anyone gets in its way, he is going to get hurt and hurt badly.  It's a very colorful verb, isn't it?
