Edit: NSFW language....Guess I should have said that earlier.

Snow sucks... but ice is a killer. No matter how much you love your 4WD, it's not gonna help on a street that's like greased glass.

Holy crap. That guy in the white truck is an idiot.

Haha, the insurance companies are going to have fun sorting out that mess. Dude in the diesel probably would have made if that other SUV wasn't in his way. And the narrator is a moron.

It's incredible that he even thought about it. When you see all those trucks and cars like that, WTF makes you think it's a good idea to go up hill? Most of the cars looked like they were okay(some damage, but not totaled), but the white car he ran into and the red car which was hit after that seemed much totaled. The SUV didn't have that much damage, though.

I felt bad for the people trapped in their cars. There were a couple towards the bottom of the hill trapped because they were pinned between cars.

That's my favorite part. He makes it just far enough to be able to slide back and hit everyone on the way back down. Hilarious!

After watching it again, I think the white Jeep died after it was hit by the truck.

There's a part 2 on youtube. But it's not as good as part 1 so, I just stuck with that. Part 2 is more of just the aftermath.

I'm watching it right now. The guy in the red truck is lucky. He went straight out down hill, got off the road with out hitting anything.

Eh, are you talking about that silver Liberty? Yeah, the owner sure wasn't happy. And that Civic with the bike in the truck got its whole side taken out. Dude did some damage.

I took this picture a few years ago from the office building I worked in. The car in the middle of picture was traveling on the road at the top of the picture when it went off the road, broke through the fence and dropped about 15 feet down the retaining wall onto parking lot below. We all came into work in the morning and this had happened during the night. I'll bet it was terrifying when they drove off that wall. Surprisingly, the only damage to the pavement was a few scrapes several inches deep.

Yeah, I'm talking about the silver Liberty(it looked like a Jeep to me until rewatching the video after you posted that to the part where it was hit). The guy in the white truck is an idiot, as I've said before. The Civic probably wouldn't have had that much damage if he doesn't go to the top of the hill, same with the Liberty.

Nothing I love more up here in the northeast than seeing an SUV off the road plowed into a tree trunk because some asshat thought driving an SUV gave them license to speed their ass off in bad weather. No matter if you have front, rear, four, or ninety-wheel drive, when you step on your brakes--unless you have antilock or traction control--you are now sitting in a two-ton sliding chunk of metal.

Worst parallel parkers I've ever seen.

It's not any different here, every time it snows there's always a disproportionate number of SUVs in the ditches. People think they're invincible in them.
