    Wow. That's one lucky guy (and dog).

    I wonder if the officer was in the process of setting up flares or cones before that hapless driver plowed into that pile...

    The camera allowed us (viewers) a very limited view of the road preceding the rockslide. It's pretty easy to sit and "armchair quarterback" from our side of the computer screen, without really being able to see the whole picture.
    Who knows, there might have been a good 70 mph sweeper right before.....
    Certainly looks like a Darwin Award though! LOL

    Sadly so true...

    That guy is an idiot and too many of these morons "share" the road.....I wish that the US had better drivers-ed than just a block around K-Mart...

    That section of road is the ENTRANCE to the Dragon. It runs along the lake just past foothills parkway. It is straight as an arrow.

    Did you guys notice the MOOBS* on this guy?

    *edited at the fine suggestion of rdalland!

    Apparently, he saw the camera crew on the side of the road, then was watching them and wondering what they were doing there.

    It didn't take him long to figure it out.
