    I sure hope it was faked. If not , those poor souls didn't have a chance. Although, when you have to go, at least that was quick !!

    RE: Real or Fake

    Yea I saw this and I think it was faked. Just the way the car "exploded" into pieces like that seemed un-realistic. Usually when you see a tractor trailer hit a car, it won't break into 1000 pieces like 50lbs of C4 was sitting under the seats. I vote fake. And if it was real, i'm sure the video taper would have freaked out a little more. I would have lol

    Video is real, driver of the SUV was alone and was killed.

    RE: Real or Fake

    How about a warning? It would be nice to make up my own mind whether I want to see someone die in a horrific car accident. If you think it's fake you have got to be an idiot.

    RE: Real or Fake

    Debris even hit the camera vehicle, must have been real. Sad, but show how quick lives can change.
    I might not be very good, but I'm fun to watch!

    RE: Real or Fake

    SUV sliding sideways, probably down to 45 mph, getting broadsided by a big rig, probably doing around 60-65. 5,500 pounds getting hit by a vehicle, if empty, that could weigh around 36000 to 40,000 pounds, and up to 80,000 pounds loaded. If you've ever seen the results of this situation, you'd believe that video was real.
    In tests, a driver has a reaction time to recognize a situation and decide to take action of 300 to 500 milliseconds. Takes approximately the same time to move the foot onto the brake pedal to start a brake application. That's in a test situation, where the driver under study is expecting something to happen.
    Now, a car has nearly instantaneous response to the brake pedal application because of the vacuum boosted hydraulic system. A large truck, on the other hand, with air brakes, requires an additional 200 to 500 milliseconds from the time the brake pedal starts to move till the time the brake chambers build up enough pressure to start brake application.
    I've seen, and even been in a few close calls like this- - from both sides.
    When driving, pay attention to what you're doing, keep the mind on your driving. Don't drive when sleepy. Don't be constantly changing radio stations, don't carry on conversations on ANY type of cell phone, and especially, don't text while driving.
