Oh my goodness gracious Yantis, you were right, that video was so intense I'm going to have to buy me a new chair now... Sitting in mine watching this video, I clenched so tight, by butt cheeks tore a chunk clean out of the seat of my chair.... What a giant 'tard you are....

You beat me to it, Ding, although I won't resort to name-calling.  The follow-up story about the driver having died even has a link to this story with a warning that it might be too intense for some viewers, LOL!  If a video from 100 yards away of someone being loaded into an ambulance is too intense for anybody, they need to put on their pj's and get under the bed.
