What the hell were they doing?
I’m guessing he was on his phone, he crawled out rear window. All his doors were jammed shut
Great reflexes, hits the brakes just as he hits the truck
All I know is this needs a Mario jump sound lol
The ku-pak! sound of a Koopa shell getting hit and flipped.
Exactly! They were merging, so they had to be looking at the road, unless they just got really lucky for a really short time. It’s impossible not to see the truck, right?
It looks like it might have been obscured by the A-pilar a bit, but he must have been distracted for sure.
If you don't see a big ass white truck traveling down the road while merging on to said road, You really can't blame that on the A pillar.
Can you blame it on a pill though?
Giving themselves road head
Preparing for takeoff.
Looked like the lane is ending and he tried to get around the truck
He wasn’t accelerating though, he just merged straight into the side of the truck.
Before rapidly demerging.
Seriously, wtf was he doing? The only way he doesn't see that truck is if he has his eyes closed
He could have been looking back over his shoulder to merge.
I don't really think so, he was riding into the shoulder before he "merged" lanes. I think it's much more likely he was just on his phone. I don't even think he knew his lane was ending.
The LA merge
I feel like maybe he was so focused on merging before the car behind him he prob lagged looking ahead? Just a guess
Making poor life choices at a high rate of speed...
Trying to pass on the right, instead of merging behind.
That car got hops
Fkn NPC cars.
Gotta admit impressive air there.
All 4 wheels! Real hang time
It's just a hop, skip and a jump over to the shoulder.
Like Peter Cottontail.
Straight out of The Matrix: Reloaded.
At least everything landed in the shoulder and didn't disrupt much more.
He reacted like a cat seeing a cucumber
Underrated comment and mental image. You deserve far more than impotent upvote can grant you. May the gods keep the wolves in the hills and the women in your bed
Wow... how does one miss a big tractor trailer? I hope everyone is alright.
Yea he walked out without any injuries and just had a bloody lip, he crawled out with his phone in his hand so I’m guessing he was on it
That may have happened, but your logic is not completely sound here. Should it have been in his hand, he likely would have lost it in that crazy crash. I know I would be on my phone after any crash as well.
Unless In his panic he clenched on to it...
Maybe he was on his phone, crashed, and the phone went flying. Then, as he's leaving, he grabs his phone. I can tell you where his phone wasn't: in his pants pocket out of his reach. idk, seems likely enough, especially given how he ran into a fucking big rig without even noticing.
"I can tell you where his phone wasn't: in his pants pocket out of his reach"
Why do you say that?
because why would you dig your phone out of your pocket before climbing out of the wreckage
Because you wanted to call for help?
I think what they mean is the phone was somewhere he could’ve distracted by it.
That is indeed why they were saying it but what I really was asking is what the basis for that claim is.
People seem to just randomly make things up to support whatever thing they've decided they want to believe.
True. He could just be a terrible driver.
Distracted or drowsy driving
Definitely distracted! It amazes me how many people I see on their phone as they get onto the highway
> how does one miss
Not like that
Did... did he just do an Ollie in his car?
Well, he was attempting it. Didn’t quite make it.
Was going for a nollie heel flip.
Michael Bay is jealous of your footage.
Plot twist: Michael Bay was the truck driver.
Good on you for pulling over and checking them out
Yes! The only one to stop!
Am I the only one that tries to predict which car the idiot is going to be? Turns out 8 out of 10 times I'm wrong. I was staring at the white van and the truck.
I feel like playing the "which one's the idiot" game has improved my awareness on the road, although it's cheating in here because you know there's going to be at least one idiot.
I will now. Thanks!
It's kinda fun actually
I bet that feels like when you crest a little hill and get that ‘woosh’ feeing in your tummy. But scarier.
fun fact, im on mobile but i have autocaps off.
i love that sub, i was there when they created it.
Entirely self-inflicted. Yikes
That jump reminds me of a cat getting startled
Good for you to stop.
so that’s what happens when a car hits a truck’s tires, ive always wondered
They probably have those flippers installed. A lot of truckers use them here. They bust your tires and flip your car if you impact them.
I guess that answers my question about what happens if you slide an object under a wheel that is rotating in the direction against you.
Bill Nye the science guy! Bill bill bill bill bill bill ! inertia is a property of matter 😂
Thanks for stopping OP!
After how hard I saw him land on the roof I had to stop and make sure he was alright, he also had a car seat in the back but thankfully no child in it.
Oh my heart stopped a beat when I read car seat.
are you telling me your car doesnt have seats?
A car seat is specific, special chair that was created to retain children / babies in the vehicle when a collision occurs. My vehicle no longer requires car seats as my child now exceeds height and weight requirements.
Edit - good question.
i know, it was a joke.
I know it was but I'm an asshole.
Kudos to you for stopping and taking care.
Wow, got some unexpected air!
I mean, what was he even trying to do?
Man, I hope the tires are ok on that trailer.
Well at least he kept it tidy and on the shoulder.
Boing! He yeeted himself.
The physics in GTA5 seems more realistic the more of these idiots in cars videos I'm watching, haha.
"Oh, something just tickled me!" \~White Truck
Physics do be weird sometimes
I'm super glad to have seen some of these clips, rotating tires interacting at speed is super crazy to see.
At the same time, while I can't do the math, I can visualize the transfer of energy, the upward moving tire would be transferring a bit of speed into the downward moving tire, and at their direct impact they act like a head on collision. With the earth not giving up any energy, 100% of the equal and opposite reaction of the tire elasticity ends up propelling the impactor vertically. Crazy. Depending on the size of the safer car he may or may not even notice that something happened.
Without having seen it I'd have been left dumbfounded how some of these cars land upsidedown.
That bitch got LAUNCHED.
NBA wants him on a team. If he can launch 2 ton that high, imagine what he could do with a basketball!
He must of fell asleep at the wheel.
He crawled out with his phone out, im guessing he was on it and didn’t see that his merge lane was ending
To all the comments mentioning that it's unrealistic he didn't see the truck, I'd say it's probably one of two things.
One he was on his phone or looking at something off the road..so just distracted.
The other though is that he did see the truck and he was just being a reckless driver. He was going faster than nearly every other car, and possibly misjudged the distance when trying to overtake the truck to get in front of it by driving on the shoulder. But, he hit the rear tires which flung his car in the air with the momentum.
Idiot on a cell phone. But no worries, it’ll buff out….
Surprised the trucker even felt that.
I think he hit the back tire which’s rotation sent him up
You don’t say.
No clip into the side of the truck to temporarily unlock flying cars
Now that is really difficult to do. Wow
He's honestly lucky the truck pulled over. My friends and I were run over by a semi and dragged for about 50 feet under his tire. All of the emergency responders said it wasn't uncommon for a truck driver to not notice a little speed bump like out car. That being said the sedan driver is also lucky to be alive for doing something so stupid.
Was the job at a body shop?
The bounce... lol.
And now the truck driver gets pissed tested because some lawyer wants to find something to blame.
Peter Parker was driving the red car, his spidey sense kicked in
Spring trap level 4 17d14h
Moron got what they deserved
There's a truck there
Was this the beltway in Virginia?
Yes, 495 north before the Maryland border
I recognize those pointless unused toll lanes anywhere
It was actually before Gorge Washington parkway lol but yea they are useless
What a dumb shit
POP goes the weasel
I don’t even understand how this happens. I get you probably have a distracted driver on his phone, but how do you not see a gigantic Semi to your left?
Good on ya for pulling over.
Driver is gonna feel that in the morning.
Broooooo what the **FUCK**
It’s like he was trying to hit the truck.
