    Amazing truck crash

    Take a look at the this crash in Utah. The pictures were so amazing they were thought to be fake by the internet's 'mythbusters', but apparently the pics have been verified by local police (cnn.com)

    The driver crashed through the barrier on the right, flipped over the culvert and landed on the other side, on all 4 wheels.



    Now look at this photo:

    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?

    Now, if that landing doesn't show that he was either living right or the luckiest [EDIT] "truck driver" [EDIT] on the planet, I don't know what does!

    Mary Mother of God....

    Ain't physics insane?

    I seriously think that I would've wet myself if I, as the driver, came to and looked to my right....

    Now, that's just freakin' incredible!

    I think that if I realized that that happened to me, then I'd have a heart attack... because that's something that is just too unreal.

    I dare say the actual driver did just that.

    Holy crap... I'd be counting my blessings for the rest of my life if that happened to me.

    Wow!
    Holy molars...
    Judging from the second picture, I'd have to agree with cpneb that that guy's the luckiest guy on the planet...
    Now if I were him, the next thing I'd do is go buy a lottery ticket... :P
    EDIT: BTW, cpneb, since this is a family-oriented forum, I must ask you to not use acronyms like "SOB" here, OK? I'm sure you can come up with something a little less risque that'd get your point across just as well.

    Any word of what the reason this happen? Fog maybe? Speeding? Thats a heck of a fall though. Though i have see worse falls of semi-truck on the internet... though most didnt make it though it.

    According to the skid marks the police say the driver was going 75mph, while the driver said he was going 55mph. Other than excessive speed the article didn't mention any other contributing factors.
    Why is everyone who drives slower than me an idiot, and everyone who drives faster a maniac?
