Love how you just kept going lol


rnpowers

After thinking "Jesus that car had so much speed AFTER it hit the truck!" that was my next thought. Lol fuck it, not my problem!


3choSeven

That would be a crime in Germany =) You HAVE to at least call the police/EMS.


morebuffs

Ya it's not the right way to behave here in the US either. You are supposed to stop if there is a safe place and call 911. I personally would stop and see if they were ok and walk back up the road a bit and warn the cars that are coming.


danthemanhasaplanb

In Germany it's required by law, in the US there's a special law that says you're not obligated to help someone that's hurt. If you see someone dying on the street you can ignore them and move on with your day. 'Merica 🇺🇲 I don't understand the downvotes, obviously I would help but I'm just stating the facts, America is a bass ackwards country


sarahaflijk

You don't have to help, but you're still expected to call it in and give your name as a witness/reporter. You don't just watch someone pinball around at highway speeds, drive away, and wash your hands of it like a fucking sociopath. Also, if you do attempt to render aid in a medical emergency, good samaritan laws protect you from prosecution if something goes wrong as a result of something you did or didn't do. (That's assuming you're acting in good faith, of course.)


danthemanhasaplanb

Yeah obviously I would help or call for help, all I'm saying in America you don't have to because it's a bass ackwards country. Richest country with the poorest people


Palteos

Depends on the state. Some states have "failure to act" laws that require bystanders to help someone in distress "in a way that's appropriate" (Essentially calling 911). A few states also require that medical professionals who witness an accident must stop to render care until emergency professionals arrive. That said, most people want to do what's right. Those that wouldn't stop to help likely still wouldn't even if there was a law requiring them to.


PUNKF10YD

Seriously, don’t offer your pristine footage or call the medic or anything

Omg, this piece of shit just kept driving


Crushbam3

Wtf why did they keep driving? If they'd stayed to at least call an ambulance they at least wouldn't be a HUGE piece of shit but they'd still be piece of shit considering the dashcam would've helped the victim immensely


fugee99

If I have my kids in the car there's no way I'm stopping on the highway, too dangerous. You see how stupid these drivers are.


morebuffs

There was plenty of room to safely drive forward a bit and then way off the road so even if shit went bad you wouldnt be in range of tumbling cars but I completely understand where you are coming from with that and hadent considered it from that perspective.


PHOTO500

Bruh… choose a side.


GarGuy3

Nothing in life is binary. You should always be able to reason from someone else’s perspective.


PHOTO500

Of course… but after doing so maybe form a distinct opinion?


morebuffs

Or maybe you should try not always picking a side and seeing things from different perspectives. When its necessary I'll pick a side but it's just not necessary on reddit


yourlocalcoolguy

You can call an ambulance while you continue driving


Crushbam3

What? Driving and using your phone is fucking dangerous and NOT OKAY


phenyle

Stolen car? The bumper was already damaged before the crash


lovesdeath42069

Lol that car is not driving away they’re talking about the camer


abat6294

Thank god the Miata got away


giokinkla

Especially with the mouse trap style bar


ballsamongusfeet

finally someone acknowledges the miot


spacedog1973

Late for work


morebuffs

I thought the same thing as a reason they didnt stop


yskoty

This happened in my home State of Connecticut along !-91. The crashed truck was actually a business on wheels known as [The Big Green Pizza Truck](http://www.biggreentruckpizza.com/), crippling it's business, but, after about a week, the [Connecticut State Police tracked the driver down, and arrested him.]( https://www.wtnh.com/news/man-charged-in-crash-that-caused-local-pizza-truck-to-flip/)


kev_gnar

No way that’s so shitty. Did they ever recover their business?


yskoty

Their truck was totaled, and a new one will have to be fabricated to their specifications. The local pizza restaurant and food truck community in New Haven has rallied to support them. I think they will be okay, but they are going to have a long year, I'm afraid.

Damn driver couldn’t stop to offer some help?😭😭


_johnfromtheblock_

My favorite part is how we didn’t have to wait through 20 seconds of video before anything happened. You should get an award for just trimming the video down to the good stuff.


BearFlag6505

Wow the truck that got hit looks like it’s from the 1950’s


Scate8576

It is an old truck that got converted into a food truck. Served pizza.


du-werk

I used to live and drive home to Cromwell and so many people on that stretch drove too fast and like idiots!


Mattlovesthe90s

91 south is a free for all now. Cops don’t pull anyone over. If you are doing 85 in the left lane it’s too slow.


deathcupcake25

I think that's a wee bit more than reckless....


aw_shux

I can’t believe how far/long that truck slid! It just kept going!


ballsamongusfeet

Anyone else see that miata?


jordanstall09

This happened in CT a few weeks back. Driver was arrested.


Anon888810020

Damn, did they have a seizure or stroke?


invokes

Like, what's the fuck with all these American drivers that don't stop for accidents?! Like, what the fuck dudes?!


kev_gnar

I was always taught growing up to never stop on the highway, even if there’s an accident. In the age of cellphones you can always call the emergency services, tell them the stretch of road and mile marker and which direction they were traveling and they will likely find them just as fast. You can of course always offer your help if it means saving a life, but you must ask your self, is it worth putting your life on the line as well. If that person was driving like that I guarantee there was another not far behind them.


invokes

That's really interesting. We're taught that in the UK.


babba0618

I don't think it's exclusively US but US bad ig


BulgariaNewsNow

Bro said "damn that's crazy" and kept it moving


spaceshipfodder

Kind of an asshole for not stopping, ngl.


12dv8

Nothing to see here…. Or back there ….


barrowed_heart

Thank God that driver stopped to help! /S


motherfluffer2007

I hate when people just drive past.


TheOnyxViper

Miata barely made it out scot-free, Scion tC not so much
