That was the lamest crash ever. Where was he trying to go?

Ya he didn't seem to be going all that fast.. and from the character of the squealing, had sticky tires.

Typical douche driving too fast on the street. Trying to impress the fat chick? No sympathy.

Where was he going to go even if he had made the corner? Into oncoming traffic?

Never liked him, never could figure out why. Now I know

He ran into his own transport truck, I'm not rich enough to know how those work but wouldn't you know where you left it? Or at least see it?

I wonder if he paid for a new front wheel for the poor guy in the little old Mercedes coupe. Looked like he kissed the curb avoiding him.

Looks like somebody told him there'd be no traffic coming from the other direction and they didn't get the road closed off in time... he was planning on going around the truck and saw the cars mid-corner... old dude reaction time and 911 handling took it from there.

The only explanation I can come up with is that somebody fucked up telling him the road was clear, or that the road and truck were positioned to block his view of those two cars for long enough for him to think they weren't there.

Maybe Magnus Walker only looks 20 feet ahead at all times?
