Hmmm, that's one pissed off truck driver.

You think those taking the video would be honking to the driver to stop.

It's funny how you guys automatically assume the truck driver knew the car was under him. An individual on TAC had the same thing happen to him a few years back and the only way he got the drivers attention was by literally opening the sunroof and waving his hands through the roof.

The car's actually in the trucks blind spot.

i'd imagine you'd feel the initial impact and unless the truck driver is also deaf he should probably hear some ungodly noises coming from front of his truck.

Ya +1 on the truck not knowing. Apparently it's not uncommon, heard other stories as well.

Have you driven a truck? A truck hitting a car of that size is like you hitting a pot hole with your car. It's minimal impact and you ignore it.

It's like a elephant in the forest. When it walks its ass brushes on trees causes impact and sometimes breaks them. The elephant doesn't stop and ask if the tree is okay, it moves the **** on.

^ lets just say for some reason that they don't feel the impact, or see a car or hear anything and just keep going.

in this case we should petition NA to adopt the kinds of trucks they have in europe where there is no 'hood' so the driver can see the road two feet or less in front of his bumper.

the truck (elephant) didn't exactly just brush against the car (bush or tree), it sorta rammed into it head first at full speed.
