It looks like he put the car in reverse half way over the pile!

Okay, if this loads an unrelated video, look for the "Tennessee Rock Slide" link.

Aside for a 20 second ad for a 15 second video, the first link worked fine for me.

What an idiot.

Wow, how did he not see that! I could understand if he was just hauling too much ass to stop, but to get out of the car and say "I didn't even see it!". That's impressive.

In reply to 16vCorey:

My guess is that he was watching the police and camera crews at the side of the road.

Damn rubber neckers... I hope he lost all four tires and both oil pans...

I'd bet that while that rock was making its way through the transmission pan it moved the shift linkage, or he had his hand on the shifter on impact.

My 6 year old daughter is a complete klutz. She'll fall down "I'm ok!" She's goofy.

Dogs, peanut butter, and twisty roads don't mix.

Poor dude was 20MPH and a foot in the throttle away from being my berkeleying hero.

I second the rock-through-the-tranny-pan idea.

Stupid stupid stupid. I'll probably do worse at some point in my life, though.

When traffic's slow because everyone ahead is looking at something on the side of the freeway, as we pass by and the clown in front of me is looking over, it's all I can do to not lay on the horn

So he was probably looking, dumbfounded, at his phone, wondering why his text wouldn't 'send'.
