    — Two years from now, while driving down Route 91... coming home to your wife and baby daughter... you're going to be hit head-on by a drunk... driving a blue '87 mustang. You'll end up looking worse than sixty feet of bad road your body slides across... after flying out your front windshield.
    The X-Files, episode Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose

    I think the definite article is required before the underlined part since it is a specific length of road — the one his body will slide across. It's even defined by a defining relative clause. What would you say?
    Thanks.
