Posted on 01/17/2020 1:21:40 PM PST by Red Badger
An out of control vehicle almost smashed directly into a man in Armenia.
Amazing video at link...................
Wow...what a good natured guy to smile that that afterwards.
Good peripheral vision & quick reflexes win the day!
Look before you leap, but do leap!
It probably would have helped if the driver and passenger weren’t covering their faces when they drove.
He’s probably thinking, I hope they got good insurance!!!!!.............
And he smiled immediately afterwards, not a hint of anger. Decent dude.
Situational awareness - checking your ‘6’ - better to be able to laugh and say “WHEW” than to be crushed!
Interesting how so many car-dash videos come out of the old Warsaw Block countries. I’ve wasted many a minute watching YouTube compilations of hits and barely missed vehicle rodeos from there. Winter driving there? Only in a TANK!
One of those “I was almost a bloody splatter” moments.
They get discounts on their insurance if they have a dash cam.......
Cool as a cucumber on ice.
Thanks for the info. I like scratching my curiosity bump.
He has what we called “good situational awareness”.
Learned that back when that Russian meteor hit and there was dash cam video all over the place from it.
I thought it was weird that there was so many people that had dash cams, then they reported why it was so................
w0w that’s bonkers! I’ll have what he’s having, if it gives me vision and reflexes like that. A dash of luck and good humor are a bonus.
“They get discounts on their insurance if they have a dash cam.......”
THANK YOU! I’ve wondered why there were so many Russian car crash videos on YouTube. Now I know. Big fan of those...
The car was only going about 5 mph when it got to him, and he jumped high enough to sit on the hood. Big screaming deal. I could probably do that, and I’m 64.
