Dashcams are great, not only for recording potential crashes or incidents on the road, but also because they can capture the once in a lifetime strange things that sometimes happen too quickly for us to see. From wild animals to natural disasters to evil clowns, these dashcams have seen it all.
Driving is the type of thing like chewing gum and walking, you can do two things at the same time. Whether it’s putting on some make up or reading a book, the perfect time to do something else is when you’re driving.
Just ask this guy, who decided he needed to live stream his race down the freeway, so followers could get a glimpse at him mugging for the camera and see his car go real fast. What’s weird is that while he was doing those things, he crashed his car. Really bad.
A firefighter in Mississippi is being called a hero after using his cell phone to show animated film Happy Feet on the side of the road to a young crash victim.
The crash happened on Saturday in the town of D'lberville when an SUV carrying one adult driver and five children flipped several times. All of them were taken to the hospital with injuries, one child transported while still trapped in a child-restraint seat, the Sun Herald
A photo taken from the crash showed D'Iberville firefighter Casey Lessard playing Happy Feet for one of the children as they lay next to the wreckage.
"The kids … we do whatever we can to calm them down," D'Ibervile Fire Capt. Darren Peterson said. "The video calmed him down instantly."
Journalist John Thomas posted an update to Facebook
Tuesday morning saying that the young boy was out of the hospital, but two of the other children were still in critical condition. A GoFundMe page
has been set up for the family.
Robinson had just stopped at a gas station, where he met a family whose children were interested in his custom-made car, Maryland state police in Hagerstown said. Robinson gave the kids some superhero paraphernalia before leaving about the same time as his new acquaintances. When they saw him pull over, they did the same and witnessed the 10:30 p.m. accident, state police said.
Robinson was having engine trouble and stopped "partially in the fast lane," according to a state police news release. He was checking the engine when the Batmobile was struck by a Toyota Camry. The Batmobile then hit him. Robinson was pronounced dead at the scene.
He had made a name for himself, dressing up as the Caped Crusader and visiting sick children in hospitals, handing out Batman paraphernalia to those who needed some inspiration.
It's the really sad loss of a man who spent much of his own free time and money trying to lift the spirits of children.
His recovery has been a long process and it has remained unknown when he would return to comedy, as he repeatedly said he wish to do. That is until Saturday Night Live tweeted out the first few hosts for the next season of the show Aug. 17:
