Yea, this was posted in the General Beekeeping forum, too.  Absolutely amazing.  It's been conjectured that the driver of the first car was knocked out, that's why the car kept going.

he wasn't knocked out.  that was more of a hill than it looked like on the film.  once he got sliding, there was no stopping.  poor guys was 79.  got out of it with just a cut on the head.

Well, then, he should have taken his foot off the gas!  Thankfully no one was seriously injured in it all.

ya, he could have been.  could have been stunned a bit when the air bag deployed.  that tape is pretty long and it's one car after another doing about the same thing.  his was just the most spectacular.
