You could be missing an important point: yes, she made a mistake, but the truck driver should have stopped and he just continued, as if he was driving over some rubbish on the road.

I'm also wondering if the truck was in a turning lane and went straight ahead!

Unfortunately I'm on a computer running Chrome, so can't embed the link. But this used to be the world record high dive, 172 f*^%ing feet! Its since been broken but only by 5 feet. The shot panning up the tower before he jumps is just redonkulous.

This is a video I made from a ride at an abandoned military base, and then went down some hiking trails/single track...

Hit 1080p!

The fuck you did. You and your camera man were in zero danger - all you did was drive like a moron. That rider saved himself. What a dickweed.

I don't mean to get this thread off topic... but I hope someone catches up with the driver of that fj. I can forgive a little idiotic driving, but driving with so little awareness and then trying to claim credit for preventing an accident just blows my mind.
