Why does the dashcam guy appear to be buttoning up his pants as he walks toward the totally strange scene?
Life is lonely on the road.
I have seen a trailer truck do exactly that once in '91 on the Nimitz freeway between Emeryville and Oakland. Can find it totally believable, and probably not that freak.
(Minus the landing on a roof, in this case the trailer went vertical and then toppled to the side back down to the road.)
Reminds me of when they altered the roadway of highway 400 east of Calvary cemetery in Wichita, KS (with a wall, even) because the house at the bend was ultra-prone to truck impacts.
It’s all major highway now, but at the time, the owners must have regretted living there.
That time you didn’t get the insurance on a rental.
“You know how hard it is to find a parking place round here? I figured I’d just put it on the roof. I can always move it if anyone complains.”
Are we sure this is what’s happening here? Maybe there’s a piano on the second floor of that house they want removed.
For me the most surprising thing was that there was no audible reaction from the driver. No “oh shit”, or even an “oh, my”.
Were the bystanders moving slowly to give the impression of slow-motion?
Quite a graceful landing
Is it confirmed that’s a Penske rental? Looks to me like it Hertz.
I downloaded this the other day, almost entirely for the name alone. Not played it yet but it looks insane.
Hollywood CG folks should be taking notes. This opens up a whole new set of plausible truck stunts if this goes viral.
At 0:28, there’s a two-frame flash of white in the sky above the powerlines. Is that just a compression artifact or a glint of light?
Would it kill you to pull over instead of just leaving your car in the middle of the road before getting out?
