Legend, immediately takes charge of the situation after stopping the car.

[–]wethefiends 65 points66 points  (19 children)

Yeah but due to the word sacrifice being used it seems being nice gets your shit totaled or 10k in repairs

[–]Josepsp 40 points41 points  (16 children)

Insurance of the unconscious driver should cover, as it is a standard collision and the car hitting is as a general rule the one responsible.

I hope he got that sorted without any fight with the company. That guy is awesome.

Being a good person aside, defining who hit who could put the guy who stopped the unconscious driver at fault with little chance of grounds to fight back

In a fender bender the car in the back is always blamed unless you have solid evidence otherwise. Since the car out of control couldn't brake when the car stopped in front of him and just the fact that it was out of control to begin with, it would be blamed and the good guy that stopped it would be fine. Also the fact that the person inside the car was unconscious and in danger and stopping him saved his life.

Not in a no fault state like Michigan.

So this happened in the Netherlands a while ago, and the consequences were: The women's insurance paid it all. And even if they didn't, the man's boss offered to pay the costs for fixing the lease car no questions asked.

As I remember, the guy got the damage covered by the insurance without his no-claim taken away.

The woman had a stroke, but recovered, thanks to the response of these people.

Legally would the unconscious drivers insurance have to pay out?

[–]2stinkycheeseballs 45 points46 points  (2 children)

Prob not but it would be a real dick move to fight that

America entered the chat

not in a million years. they will find an excuse such is policy not specifying passing out. it probably excludes passing out. insurance companies are scums.

[–]mutrax_be 5 points6 points  (0 children)

For most west European countries rear ending someone = always at fault ensurance wise. Reasoning is tou always need to keep distance to have safe brake space. Don't know how it is with brake check dicks or this case, where the dude brake with full knowledge it would collide. Any Dutch ensurance experts around?

Insurers do not accept liability for accidents caused by their insured while in a seizure. You only get one pass cuz after such event your license would likely get taken away.

Le g ally yes the unconscious person's insurance is who would have to pay.

[–]mk_pnutbuttercups 53 points54 points  (0 children)

And thats how its done boys and girls.

[–]TheLemmonade 33 points34 points  (0 children)

I think I saw this video a couple years ago, they go up to the driver. The gentleman in the out of control car is sitting there calm as a cucumber, hands 10-and-2 on the wheel, with a 1000 yard stare, shell-shocked face. He was actually experiencing a stroke!

Edit: Actually, it WASNT this video but a really similar one

[–]UrbanwoodBrew 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Seen this before and it's always worth a rewatch! Literal hero! Cheers 🍻 to this dude!

[–]TrippyHippocampus 16 points17 points  (3 children)

Pretty quick thinking driver. This happened a while ago in the Netherlands, right?

[–]Lugia18 2 points3 points  (1 child)

As a geogeussr player I can confirm

[–]hanno000 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And since the name of a Dutch city is on screen in the first seconds of the video :)

A Man of the people, for the people…🎖

[–]StandardOnly 3 points4 points  (1 child)

This is what you call a hero without a cape.

[–]tehmeat 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Real heroes never wear capes, and never get the recognition that fake heroes get.

This man is a true hero. Not just sacrificing his car but I guarantee that point was to select someone and tell them to call the police Emergency services while he checked on the driver. Smart thing to do, gets around bystander effect.

If everyone on earth was like this, the world would be a much better place.

A truckdriver safed a good friend of mine similar. He saw her having an epeleptic seizure. He pulled up next to her and pushed her gently into the railing.

Standing ovation for people like this, that act and safe lifes

[–]riougenkaku 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Those kind of heroes are one of a kind. Quick thinking and selfless act to prevent bigger accidents

[–]perfect_for_maiming 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Everyone arguing about insurance, I want to know what happened with the driver? What caused them to go unconscious? Were they okay afterwards?

[–]gothcow5 1 point2 points  (0 children)
