Looks like a RWD car got the best of someone lol. My guess...a Camaro or Mustang. Those things spin out easy as hell, especially when you have a young kid driving it. I've seen it in person and in videos more times than I can count. And yeah, that tree looks like it took quite a beating, i'm sure that car was totaled on the spot.

I've seen similar marks that were pretty straight until the railroad crossing... then they kind veer off to the right and into the ditch where there is a missing sign. LOL

Pickups have no weight in the back end, and all it takes is one tire to grab a bit more then the other.

thats what im saying, you can burn out in any truck because there is no weight in the rear end, but you would think a performance truck like ram srt-10 would have a bit stiffer suspension and that with the added power it would be easy to spin the tires.
even if it did "grab" forcing it to turn one way or the other, why wouldnt you counter steer and brake? he wasnt even going that fast when he lost control. and if you dont know how to correct when driving something that can break the tires loose, then maybe you shouldnt be driving something that can break the tires loose.
