    If he had stopped then sure unintentional. But all the honking squeeling and crunching as he HIT a car should have tipped him off something went wrong. Plus he should have felt it at a minimum, especially as he was pushing the car for several seconds. If you watch you can see the car start to be shoved to the side at 7 seconds with indications ar 3 that he actully hit it.

    Sorry but looking at the video this is near certainly intentional. The facts and footage just dont add up to be "accident" And if it actully was then the level of oblivious was off the scale here.

    Yes. I thought that was implied in my earlier post, but I'm glad it's cleared up now.

    Yup I can see how the driver thought he was clear. Tho II cant help but wonder if he is a driver that puts his seat on the floor.

    Just curious, how much experience driving a hood do you have?

    Ever have to make a U-turn like that driver did?

    He was probably in a bit of panic mode and distracted because he needed to make a U-turn.

    6 months in a 359, 3 years in a 379, a year in a 389 and 2 in a W900 All long noses and long wheel bases and yes i have had to make many turns like that and with box trailers, tanks belly dumps and end dumps. And U turn or not you should have STILL have heard the screaching honking and crunching as well as seen the car in your side window and mirrors.

    I turned the volume all the way up and heard nothing, lol.
    You’re assuming their was all that noise, aren’t you..

    “Side window”? what would that have shown?

    I can promise you I won't.

    Maybe he was blasting "Red White and Blue" by Toby Keith.

    Lead, follow, or GTFOutta the way. Trucker helped him choose option three.
