    This happened going up Cajon Pass. Northbound there are five lanes. #5 lane is for slow moving trucks. #4 lane is for trucks to pass. Often if I am deadheading up the hill I can get in #3 lane without slowing down 4 wheelers very much.

    The danger going up the hill comes from 4 wheel drivers trying to pass a blocking cluster in lanes #1 through #3 by accelerating and weaving through the slow trucks. It's unfortunate the Darwin Hammer didn't fully function on this one.

    Even when I try to slow/freeze the video I couldn’t tell what kind of car it was(car was going so fast it was blurred).It looked like either a Honda Civic,Audi A4/S4 or an Eagle Talon (twin to the Mitsubishi Eclipse-long since discontinued).

    Whatever it was, it was probably discontinued too!

    Both drivers probably have been discontinued as well for a variety of reasons...

    I saw this the other day.

    Couldn't believe a Swift was involved (even though he was innocent!) I mean,,, you really can't make this up.
     
    Lepton1, FerrissWheel and mjd4277 Thank this.
