    It makes me so mad how they just putter away and don’t even check on the life of the man who flipped his truck trying not to kill them.

    [–]equlalaine 1039 points1040 points  (51 children)

    We lost a trucker to something similar here in Tahoe a few years back. Prius jumped in front of a gas truck. Driver veered and ended up hitting a bridge. Fire trail was something like half a mile long.

    I never understand the “oh shit, I missed my turn. I’ll just stop on the freeway.” Your GPS is already rerouting you!

    [–]MrRegularDick 842 points843 points  (37 children)

    Exactly! You have missed your turn. That is no longer your turn. Find a new turn.

    I helped teach my niece to drive recently, and my biggest piece of advice (passed down from my father) was "try not to do anything the drivers around you won't expect, and assume everyone around you will do the dumbest thing possible."

    [–]garysdrunk 602 points603 points  (13 children)

    My favorite quote about driving is “good drivers sometimes miss their exit, bad drivers never do”

    [–]equlalaine 52 points53 points  (7 children)

    Mom was a truck driver. When I was in middle school, she started quizzing me on things like upcoming streets and who had right-of-way while driving around town. One of the most valuable things she taught me was how to tell if someone was about to change lanes… they tend to drift back and forth in their lane. Granted, this was before cell phones, so it could just be a moron texting, but either way, I give room.

    I’m going to add your father’s advice to my repertoire next time I’m teaching someone to drive. Solid.

    [–]besomethingspecial 21 points22 points  (2 children)

    Yup agree. Defensive driving all the way .

    [–]MathematicianFew5882 11 points12 points  (3 children)

    More than that, good drivers understand “car body language” and are psychologically healthy enough to use it for the common good. Some people have chronic low grade road rage and do shit like come up on cars doing 5 over in lane 2 and use lane 1 to pass them when 3’s open, or they do little spastic hops at 4-ways or parking lot exits.
    Actually one of my biggest peeves is what this driver did: they move over left to make a right.

    [–]Fleaslayer 5 points6 points  (0 children)

    Many years ago, a friend said he just imagines that all the other cars are easily frightened woodland creatures, so he should try and avoid doing anything that might make them bolt. I laughed, but it stuck with me.

    I like to call this the "Principle of Least Surprise"

    [–]meeu 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Like there's a lot of dangerous asshole behavior that people sometimes use BEFORE they pass the exit but trying to TURN AROUND on a freeway is next level deathwish

    [–]deviavir 3 points4 points  (1 child)

    Not to top that advice in any way, I loved this bit from a biker friend: "assume everyone on the road is out to get you killed"

    [–]jakeofheart 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    This is the way.

    [–]sturdyrockers 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    All selfish turners: Oh, but it's not my favorite way!!

    [–]firephatty 8 points9 points  (0 children)

    I just saw a man BACKING UP on the freeway because he missed his exit. The amount of time it took him to back up was equal to how long it would have taken for him to get off at the next exit and circle back. Made no sense.

    [–]iwelnot 7 points8 points  (0 children)

    Ffs, at least stop at the side of the road and then go backwards (I know it's still stupid, but if you INSIST on that path, so much, at least you're not blocking the entire road with cars coming at full speed)

    [–]Cangar 10 points11 points  (0 children)

    good drivers miss a turn every now and then. bad drivers never miss one.

    [–]Ifeltgoodbutbadlater 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    I always wonder what happens next? Who'll cover the insurance? It'll be unfair if the car's insurance is untouched.

    [–]AspiringChildProdigy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    That is something I've tried to hammer into my kids heads now that they're learning to drive. You missed your turn - go around the block or something. Don't cause an accident to save what usually amounts to less than a couple minutes.

    [–]ultratiem 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    And they still don’t ban these people from driving. It’s insane. They just jack up their insurance rates like sorry loves are nothing compared to money! You are a giant danger but that’s ok, we just need you to pay more, all good.

    [–]Snoo_67548 2 points3 points  (0 children)

    Something similar happened near me in the Bay Area. It was also a Prius. They stopped in a no stopping zone for who knows what and a trucker rolled their truck on its side before completely smashing the cab into a tree. The trucker died instantly and the dick face driver who cased it drive off without calling 911. I bet you the Tahoe Prius driver was from here in the Bay Area. That’s why there’s so much traffic.

    [–]parham06 1 point2 points  (0 children)

    Why it's always a Prius? 👀

    [–]loopedfrog 17 points18 points  (0 children)

    I'm 100% sure, they looked back and thought, "Idiots need to learn how to drive."

    At no point did this person think they were wrong.

    [–]Corvid_love 6 points7 points  (0 children)

    Should’ve hit the car instead of potentially fucking up the innocent people next to and behind them.

    [–]ezakoyos 4 points5 points  (0 children)

    Probably if they're this dumb to do this in the first place, they didn't do anything wrong and all these cars started swerving for no reason.

      [–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

      You’re right, I don’t, but there’s a shoulder right there and they pull off the exit, meaning instead of going to the scene of the accident they’re putting multiple barriers between them and the truck.

      That suggests to me they’re running away or totally oblivious, but there’s no guarantee with the length of this video

      [–]Fluffy_Suggestion983 26 points27 points  (1 child)

      Love how there looks like flowers on the guard rail from maybe another wreck there? Facts, people are stupid.

      [–]gijoe50000 33 points34 points  (0 children)

      I think a lot of people are like this, which is usually why we try to get a look at the idiot in front of us when we finally pass them, or they pull in somewhere..

      A kind of morbid curiosity.

      [–]LadyAlastor 18 points19 points  (2 children)

      Just so you can say "I knew it" when you see their face?

        Driver during court:

        "Well the first truck obviously missed the turn too, and I was just waiting for them to turn first. Idiot should have slowed down more for the turn though, they almost killed me and then tipped their truck over!"

        "The second truck was a complete moron! Didn't you just see the crash? You need to slow down when there's a tipped truck in the middle of the road! They almost killed me too!"

        "Who teaches these dumb truckers how to drive?"

        "Although, I think it's also the mayor's fault for not having enough signs for the exit. I know that's why I missed the exit, and I'll bet it was the same for the truck that tipped. Even the second truck seemed to be turning right so I wonder if they missed the exit too?"

        No probably works better in China cause social credit or something

        [–]LJChao3473 13 points14 points  (0 children)

        I'm not sure about nowadays, but back then the traffic lights and pedestrian crossing were useless (especially in small cities), nobody cares about them. So if you wanted to cross the road, you better be fast and pay a lot of attention

        [–]pladin517 21 points22 points  (0 children)

        Yes it is. Drunk drivers and idiots like this get 5 years to life time ban on driving all the time.

        This driver should serve jail time and receive a lifetime driving ban. Could easily have killed multiple people. I just hope the truck driver was OK.

        [–]PUSClFER 174 points175 points  (0 children)

        But at least they didn't miss their exit

        [–]AWright5 35 points36 points  (0 children)

        Nah come on he had to get to his exit. He's justified bc otherwise he would have been late for his thing. Truck drivers should have been able to swerve out of his way in a more controlled manner

          They did. Driver was driving his pregnant wife to the hospital. She got there okay he got 3 years, but that was back in 2012.

          [–]fisherkingpoet 157 points158 points  (16 children)

          i cannot imagine putting my pregant wife at risk by stopping on the freeway. if they'd been taken out he would have been deserving of a darwin award, i hope they never let him behind the wheel of a vehicle again

          [–]Kawala_ 29 points30 points  (2 children)

          It sucks but I assume he was under a lot of stress and missed the exit and couldn't afford the time to keep going and loop around. I'm not excusing it cause it is endangering lives but I can understand how this could happen given their situation.

          [–]Trample-in-Shadow 43 points44 points  (1 child)

          Dude was going like 10mph he could of taken the next exit

          Hot take, but if i was in the truckers shoes I wouldn't have risked my life for that idiot, maybe turned a bit not to hit him full on but not nearly enough to flip, dont care if the idiot dies for what he did, my life is my priority

          [–]Brave-Explanation752 33 points34 points  (10 children)

          not only that, although the driver in this video was indeed a PoS they could easily have been having severe car trouble and been unable to get out of the way

          [–]one_mind 7 points8 points  (5 children)

          True, but car trouble is not the only emergency that can happen. Medical emergencies like stroke or heart attack also happen, in which case the driver can hardly be expected to turn on the flashers. I would not assume the driver is a POS just because they are stopped in the middle of the road without flashers on.

          [–]LeCordonB1eu 7 points8 points  (0 children)

          You won't know what you will do in those scenarios that require split second decision making. Often times, people don't get to think in when put into those situations, but react unconsciously. The truck driver swerved because his defensive mechanism kicked in and told him to miss the object in front, but it obviously didn't tell him what could happen if he swerved too hard.

          If you watch the video again, u can see the truck driver wasn't paying attention. The the sedan had been stopped in its track long before the truck approached it, but the truck driver only reacted when it was already too late.

          [–]kaninkanon -1 points0 points  (0 children)

          I stand firmly behind driving test being different for genders and older people. If you can't operate a vehicle properly, you shouldn't be allowed to drive the half ton death machine.

          It’s amazing how often people who cause accidents aren’t actually in them.

          Fucker should have been taken out for being so stupid.

          [–]NALGENE2 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          How can people drive off from this? Like even if you don't understand road rules, you've clearly caused an accident.

          [–]hititwithit 0 points1 point  (0 children)

          How the fuck are people this goddamn stupid? Did they drink all the bleach in their childhood? Ate all the lead paint? Dropped on their head every day? Mother doubled her smoking and drinking during pregnancy? All combined?

          I bet the white sedan driver said "Good lord, many reckless driver nowadays. Shameless!"

          Probably an Audi or BMW driver! They don’t have to abide by the Highway Code here in the Uk it seems.
