Exclamation Holy Crap You Guys!!!

I saw the coolest thing EVAR today! EVAR!!

I'm driving on I-95 up near the exit for my house (2 miles south) and Im behind an 18 wheeler/ car carrier (that just so happen to have cut me off 3 miles back) and on a bridge it hit a rut where the bridge and the road meet...when it hit that bump, an '05 4Runner on the back FELL OFF and was driving on its own down 95...I'm just watching in amazement (I couldnt move, my jaw was to the floor) and the driver realized what happened, the 4R is swerving everywhere, and doing about 75-80mph (truck was FLYING), so the 18w swerves in front of the 4R and nails the brakes - this 4R PLOWED into the back coming to a near dead stop (20mph or so) and then cuts into the fast lane, rides up on the jersey wall and stops.

I was like "HOLY S**T! I cant die happy now!!"

No one on the road saw it but me...I was all alone...and right behind it the whole time.

...I bought 7 lotto tickets today.

That was awesome.

Sounds like that was cool, you never have a camera at those times.!!
Speed is only a matter of money; how fast do you want to go?

Didn't see it happen but a few years ago I came up on a semi in a ditch on it's side...was loaded with new corvettes.

That's why I bought a cheap old digital camera on eBay - so I could always have a camera with me everywhere I go (and catch stuff like this happening!) and not be worried about carrying around my nice expensive ones. Now that I have a cheap camera with me everywhere I go, nothing exciting happens!

Sounds like the carrier truck was going way too fast...

All those damned 18 wheelers go too fast. Nothing I hate more than a big rig trying to pass another big rig going up hill at 45 mph on a freeway. Jaysus that gets my blood boiling so fast.

I almost got hit by one of them thar crazy truck drivers that don't see the need to stop. There was a lost load in the middle of my lane like something coverd in a black tarp bigger then my focus, way much bigger. Anyways once I managed to get into the other lane this friken semi almost hit me, very close looking in my mirror the guy swirved the truck around it barly missing it. Scared the shit outa me.

Yeah most truckers arent that bad though I dont think.

WOW!. Reminds me of what I saw about a month ago. I was standing in a parking lot near a low bridge. A transport truck carrying a load of new explorers trys to make it under.....SCREEAACH, SMASH, SCRRREEAACH.....The guy ends up smashing the roofs of the 3 explorers on top with the bottom of the bridge. Man, that's an $$$ mistake.
