    Good one Jon! Video Fun! Luckily that truck decoupled and only bounced the driver off the door!

    Agreed, Also the driver obviously ran a red light guess he has never heard of the old saying red is dead.

    Yeah he walked away. Lucky, a little shell shocked and wobbly, but walked away; to get hit another day. His posture and glance down track, you can almost hear "Dang, gotta call dispatch....again!"

    The stark suddenness is what gets me every time. Saw a movie while back with Anne Hathaway where the shot was of her riding a bike down an alley from the back and Bammmmm Gone, done in by a truck. Seems to be a trend now in Cinematography, which I dislike. I woke up days later with that scene in my head. Think the worlds got enough PTSD to go around...don't need any more.
