Sensing a weak link in the herd, the hidden predator strikes. It's all over in a moment. The SUV will eat well tonight.
Damn that dude actually reacted fast to a flying car launched out of an underground cave.
The ambulances will have to wait their turn.
Or he might've lost control, gone into the median and been a surprise flying car to the other direction of traffic, potentially instigating an infinite loop of flying cars.
DAMN NATURE, YOU SCARY
Damn, the quick reaction of the other car probably saved his own life, well at least the life of the driver.
Anyone know what happened to the drivers? I'm impressed with the reaction time.
Funnily enough if he had swerved towards the flying car he probably would have been fine.
Infinite flying car.... This is the future that was promised
I am impressed as well. That driver was turning while the guy was still in the air, and it was incredibly fast. And he didn't slam into the side of the truck right behind him (I am assuming he knew the right lane was clear next because he was paying attention).
I don't think it was modern safety systems. That was sheer "I am driving down the road watchi...HOLY FUCK WHAT IS THAT COMING RIGHT AT ME TURN AWAY FROM IT RIGHT NOW!"
Back flipped out of the way while simultaneously pulling out guns and shooting the other car
What's the story behind this? Is it drugs, alcohol, or playing to much GTA
Ambulances are the scavengers of nature. Going after the sickly and wounded. They need to live too..
Why did Batman put an exit there?
I wonder what a self driving car would have done with this flying car dilemma.
Looks like those Duke boys are at it again.
Or possibly a seizure behind the wheel
She laughed, I laughed, the toaster laughed. I shot the toaster. Good times.
Well way to wake up
Found the source:
The only further info is that the driver fell asleep, I couldn't find any news articles about it.
He most likely had a slightly longer look at the SUV from his position than the recording vehicle. Still, good thing he wasn't distracted with the radio or whatever.
Can't speak to this specific video but this exact thing happened to my sister's mother-in-law and sister-in-law. Turns out the other driver drank literally half a bottle of vodka, went to bed, woke up and decided to drive to work. She blacked out by the time she got to the highway and ended up crossing over the grassy median and hitting their car head-on. At 9am going full speed on a highway. The mother-in-law died on impact.
Drunk driving kills.
Aww, so he didn't get to experience that sick jump?
I should not have laughed at this!
Imagine if ambulances actually took your injured body and brought it to be made into food. Then they'd release the people who are "healed" but they'd just be clones
I see you've met my ex.
Yeah but imagine how cool it would be waking up in hospital, asking what happened and someone says "watch this"
Idk if he had enough time to swerve toward/past it. Swerving away made the collision mostly hit the back of the car so it was probably the better move.
Haha...ha. Yeah, imagine!
They're onto us, send him an ambulance... make sure no body sees it
"fine" as in in all involved dead from a full frontal collision?
Between the moment the white/grey car reacts to the moment of impact it does not cross more than one of the white stripes that seperate the lanes. There was no time to turn any other way.
A left turn would have ended some lifes there.
Edit: Upon further review, there might have been just enough time and space to make a left turn and avoide a crash, but i would not recomend trying. Failure to make it would look very grim.
I don't think the self driving cars would attempt such a jump
Since no one gave a proper reply (I think): it's an old D&D joke: an adventuring party enters a tavern and orders drinks. They talk and the bartender asks if they've killed any mimics. The bard replies "Well, if we did, how would we know?" The bartender laughed, the party laughed, the table laughed, we killed the table; it was a good time.
Or something like that, anyway.
Car flies motherfucker!
GET OUT OF MY HEAD DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
For anybody wanting the relief of seeing the raw footage
A wild car appeared!
He definitely wouldn't. He would have hit it head on. Even with his fast reactions he changed the angle about 25 degrees. If you were driving everyone would be dead.
Sounds like a Black Mirror episode
I laughed far too hard. The caption really helps.
Bullshit. With the time frames involved, that would have been a head-on collision and instant death. His reaction saved lives.
He Tahoetally surprised that motherfucker
Better than waking up dead.
...an infinite loop of flying cars.
I envision the drivers of said cars' having correspondence as they pass one another.
Did Karen get the car too?
"Wait, this isn't the Batwing!"
When I say jump, you say?
Some fries motherf**ker
Did they pinky swear tho?
Self-driving car will provide comfort in the human's last moment of life, softly whispering: proximity alert.
You’ll never catch me Krabs, not when I shift into... MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE
IMHO had that guy not turn immediately in that exact direction I don't think the driver would have survived. Straight is sure death, left is most probably a frontal collision, right you just sacrifice your own rear.
Well time to wake up.
My new girlfriend asked me last night why I carry my 1911 in the house, what am I afraid of ? I looked her straight in the eye and said "THE GODDAMN DECEPTICONS!" She laughed, I laughed, the toaster laughed. I shot the toaster. Good times!
Damn, the grey station wagon actually did quite well to avoid the brunt of the impact.
Of COURSE this happened in Russia.
I rise motherfucker
Is that a reference to something?
Dude, when did Bo and Luke trade in the General Lee.
My favorite family guy episode ever.
Only with toe pinkies so it's only a half promise
This should be pushed way up the thread.
I like to think highway morning driving is decently safe before/after rush hour... And in general, it is. But that doesn't necessarily mean some idiot isn't driving drunk in the morning, trying to get to work.
It also looks like he could have just stayed in lane and maybe hit the brake a little and been fine. Hard to know what the best thing to do is when’s flying car is thrown at you.
Soylent green or Amber Lamps?
Charlie Brooker saw your comment and said "They're on to me"
Same. I don't think I would have laughed if the caption was something banal like "Driver tried to avoid accident".
Now someone edit in that silly horn they use.
THEY CAN HAVE AMBITIONS TOO
I just woke up from dreaming about two very close friends that were killed due to a vehicle going so fast it went airborne just like this but the they were not as fortunate of having the time to swerve like this person did as the car landed basically right on top of the windshield going 80 or 90 mph.
Scary seeing this and now I just want to sleep again and have then reappear so I can continue to talk with them but more than anything, simply see their personality and smiling faces again. I miss them so much still . Stay safe out there everyone, life happens and changes in an instant.
Comments like your is why I come to reddit.
It used jump! It wasn't very effective
Hahaha 👉😎👉 Zoop
you dropped this
Or instead of a probably 0 harm back end collision, he would have a full frontal collision with likely fatalities.
Woah black betty
No one expects the Spanish inquisition
I came here for this. Leaving happy.
You can't see it in the video but he also took a selfie and posted it on Instagram.
I wonder how (if at all) self-driving algorithms like in the new Teslas would have handled a situation like this.
Darn, those Duke boys are at it again.
I read that in Attenborough's voice.
Looking at the plates, I believe "Russia" is the story behind this.
Try to kill all humans?
Gotta get WOKE
Regarding the reaction time, not to discredit the driver, but the driver had a different perspective than the camera that recorded this incident. The driver most likely saw the vehicle coming a second or so before we see it appear in the video.
The bat cave’s been compromised!
Have to freeze mid jump and go to commercial.
Just imagine sitting there and reading a book while your fancy car drives down the freeway for you, when it suddenly enthusiastically announces: "SHORTCUT U-TURN!"
Hit it like a Cruze missile
Jump up, jump up and get down!
Car flies, Motherfucker
