    This caused major traffic fuck ups this afternoon. Happened around 4:30PM, but had not been cleared an hour later. Video in the link below. I can't believe the driver was still alive at the scene.

    Go back to the scene and give a dawgsaloon shout out on the live report. The tv reporters will still be there. :giggle:

    The vette is definitely going to need some some touch up paint. I didn't think anyone could have survived. That's is why I was so surprised to find out the guy was air lifted.

    No kidding. I would look like such a dick, but I would be tempted to do it just so you fuckers could get a laugh. :jj:

    That was my first thought. I just can't see this being survivable unless he was able to duck somehow. Given the fact that he was flown to the trauma center makes me think he didn't duck enough.

    Was definitely scalped, but I don't think they bother to air lift if he's basically dead at the scene. Loss of blood will do him in probably

    I couldn't get very close to the car, but from where I was you could see part of the roof that had been peeled up from the collision. This happended less than a block from a hospital, but the driver was flown into downtown Memphis. Fortunately no kids were harmed.

    For some reason, the younger kids are starting much later in the AM this year. I don't really keep up with it because we don't have any school aged kids. My niece and nephew are home at 2:45 and 3:30. They are a little older though.

    This was the pic from my vantage point.

    Maybe it was a Corvette Pace Car and the driver was picking up his girlfriend from the bus and he was so short that he couldn't see over the steering wheel and didn't get hurt. Was he screaming this ain't Hot Rod magazine pal when Howards private helicopter picked him up ?
