  • Seriously, what was the point of this video?!

    • Possibly to illustrate that drivers continue to take theirs and others’ lives into their phone hand instead of safely driving…

    • That is the dumbest, shortest video of nothing that I ever wasted my time to watch!!

  • Veterans friend

    How do you have a head on in the southbound lanes…oh yeah. Texting

  • Put down the phone and drive or stop and help.

    Support the people actually trying to help and stop being an errant driver.

    That’s not what I saw as I passed at 3:25. I saw the Nissan truck smashed in the front and the Sequoia smashed in the driver side doors, t-boned. I told my wife that Sequoia must have been doing a u-turn on the highway. Hope all are well.

      That’s exactly what happened. The accident happened in the Northbound lane & because the Sequoia, who was traveling in the “slow” lane was trying to do a U-turn, entered the path of the “fast” lane where the Nissan was. They ended up in the Southbound lanes.

  • Please, drive first, do your drugs later…

  • The backstory: Two men of Slavic ethnicity had just bought the car and like idjiots put it in low 4 wheel and when it wouldn’t go over 35mph on the freeway attempted to turn around and got t-boned. Fleeing to protect themselves, well, their visas, they left their girlfriend passed out in the vehicle. Truth.
