Saw that on ebaumsworld today and was shocked. How someone could live through that amazes me...I was almost positive he was killed. Why would someone run that red light? From the video it appears that it was red for a long time, considering the wagon sitting there for a good 10 seconds before the Plymouth decides to do some plowing in the middle of summer. Moronic.
I almost got nailed by some jackass who also ran a red light AND ran it going through the right turn lane. If he hit me I would have seriously hurt him, not only since the bonnie is a lot bigger than the POS he was driving but also with my firsts.
Why did it take long for anyone to get out there cars to help?
The video only shows until the Subaru stops sliding/rolling. Probably would've taken another .5 - 2 seconds for the witnesses to start reacting as they typically go into shock for 1-2 seconds before things start clicking.
