What the hell were they doing?


michael_keane36

I’m guessing he was on his phone, he crawled out rear window. All his doors were jammed shut


bonfuto

Great reflexes, hits the brakes just as he hits the truck


FondleMyPancakes

All I know is this needs a Mario jump sound lol


kaihatsusha

The ku-pak! sound of a Koopa shell getting hit and flipped.


F1RST_WORLD_PROBLEMS

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?


Pyrrian

It looks like it might have been obscured by the A-pilar a bit, but he must have been distracted for sure.


Amphibionomus

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.


LukesRightHandMan

Can you blame it on a pill though?


droidman5910

Giving themselves road head


AmiHad

Preparing for takeoff.


Tommy_Wisseau_burner

Looked like the lane is ending and he tried to get around the truck


suicidaleggroll

He wasn’t accelerating though, he just merged straight into the side of the truck.


dubov

Before rapidly demerging. Seriously, wtf was he doing? The only way he doesn't see that truck is if he has his eyes closed


RepulsiveSherbert927

He could have been looking back over his shoulder to merge.


OddMeal

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.


eazolan

The LA merge


timtamcookies

I feel like maybe he was so focused on merging before the car behind him he prob lagged looking ahead? Just a guess


sfled

Auto-Darwinating.


HWGA_Exandria

Making poor life choices at a high rate of speed...


SmokeyShine

Trying to pass on the right, instead of merging behind.


THE_ScoutmasterKevin

That car got hops


gggg_man3

Fkn NPC cars.


Etrigone

Gotta admit impressive air there.


mazamayomama

All 4 wheels! Real hang time


GravitationalEddie

It's just a hop, skip and a jump over to the shoulder.


BreakfastInBedlam

Like Peter Cottontail.

olseadog

At least everything landed in the shoulder and didn't disrupt much more.

Martin_Antell

He reacted like a cat seeing a cucumber


Straight_Narwhal_953

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


zippykaiyay

Wow... how does one miss a big tractor trailer? I hope everyone is alright.


michael_keane36

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


time2churn

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.


dashi37

Unless In his panic he clenched on to it...


Ok-Button6101

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.


ExcitingChange2007

"I can tell you where his phone wasn't: in his pants pocket out of his reach" Why do you say that?


Ok-Button6101

because why would you dig your phone out of your pocket before climbing out of the wreckage


ExcitingChange2007

Because you wanted to call for help?


MutantMartian

I think what they mean is the phone was somewhere he could’ve distracted by it.


ExcitingChange2007

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.


MutantMartian

True. He could just be a terrible driver.


sax3d

Distracted or drowsy driving


nudedesertrat

Definitely distracted! It amazes me how many people I see on their phone as they get onto the highway


doctormyeyebrows

> how does one miss Not like that


Siriuxx

Did... did he just do an Ollie in his car?


Supreme0verl0rd

Bunny hop


bibkel

Well, he was attempting it. Didn’t quite make it.


somephuc

Was going for a nollie heel flip.


Yossarian_the_Jumper

Michael Bay is jealous of your footage.


SeSuSo

Plot twist: Michael Bay was the truck driver.


AlasAntigone

Good on you for pulling over and checking them out


MutantMartian

Yes! The only one to stop!


Any_1ove

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.


wlonkly

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.


Any_1ove

True that


JustpartOftheterrain

I will now. Thanks!


Any_1ove

It's kinda fun actually


Maine_SwampMan

I bet that feels like when you crest a little hill and get that ‘woosh’ feeing in your tummy. But scarier.

Camym88

That jump reminds me of a cat getting startled


OwlBeneficial2743

Good for you to stop.


vaantrash

so that’s what happens when a car hits a truck’s tires, ive always wondered


giggetyboom

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.


58eo183xu2

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.


Anubis_Styles317

Bill Nye the science guy! Bill bill bill bill bill bill ! inertia is a property of matter 😂


AmiHad

Thanks for stopping OP!


michael_keane36

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.


AmiHad

Oh my heart stopped a beat when I read car seat.


Nox_Echo

are you telling me your car doesnt have seats?


AmiHad

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.


Nox_Echo

i know, it was a joke.


AmiHad

I know it was but I'm an asshole.


vansloneker

Kudos to you for stopping and taking care.


AdMore3461

Wow, got some unexpected air!


Dismal_Strike5369

I mean, what was he even trying to do? 


noncongruent

Man, I hope the tires are ok on that trailer.


somephuc

Well at least he kept it tidy and on the shoulder.


TheRecapitator

Boing! He yeeted himself.

The physics in GTA5 seems more realistic the more of these idiots in cars videos I'm watching, haha.

Supreme0verl0rd

Physics do be weird sometimes


SeanBlader

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.


THE_ScoutmasterKevin

Why


DukeIronclaw

That bitch got LAUNCHED.


tomytronics

NBA wants him on a team. If he can launch 2 ton that high, imagine what he could do with a basketball!


GingerManBad

He must of fell asleep at the wheel.


michael_keane36

He crawled out with his phone out, im guessing he was on it and didn’t see that his merge lane was ending


LivingReaper

Must have*


Bennybonchien

Also, fallen*


FluidLegion

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.


Espressoalatte

Idiot on a cell phone. But no worries, it’ll buff out….


Joe18067

Surprised the trucker even felt that.


IceMain6689

I think he hit the back tire which’s rotation sent him up


Ihartgamesandstuff

You don’t say.


grumblestilsgin

No clip into the side of the truck to temporarily unlock flying cars


citznfish

Now that is really difficult to do. Wow


Dolassamun

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.


jiminak46

Was the job at a body shop?


Hyperchill77

The bounce... lol.


[deleted]

And now the truck driver gets pissed tested because some lawyer wants to find something to blame.
