Read the caption from the first photograph carefully, then look at the second photograph.

Look at the picture above and you can see where this driver broke through the guardrail, on the right side of the culvert, where the people are standing on the road, pointing. The pick-up was traveling about 75 mph from right to left when it crashed through the guardrail. It flipped end-over-end, bounced off and
across the culvert outlet and landed right side up on the left side of the culvert, facing the opposite direction from which the driver was traveling. The 22-year-old driver and his 18-year-old passenger were unhurt except for minor cuts and bruises.


Just outside Flagstaff , AZ on U.S. Hwy 100.



Now look at the second picture below...

It was e-mailed to me by a friend. I think it's real.

I think I've seen this before and I think it was proven to be... er.. I can't remember. But I do think it's suspicious that emergency crews are willing to stand on the cliff side adjacent to the vehicle, when anybody with half a brain would have realised the instability of the precarious perch that the truck is on.

I always hate people that automatically yell fake at everything they see on the internet, but I'm gonna have to say this one is fake. What's the point of that big tunnel underneath the bridge? Normally you see that kind of thing around bodies of water, not huge cliffs.

I don't see any indication of water draining down the cliff. I'd think you'd see some kind of change of coloration.

But the light/shadows in the distant hills seem to match the foreground. That's usually a giveaway for a faked image is when the sun shines different in different sections.

I have a serious time believing the truck was going downward and was able to bounce through the air in a different direction as far as it did.

Considering that there is no US HWY 100 near Flagstaff, AZ... I think one might be suspect to the validity of the rest of the claims.. pretty cool look though.


Damn it.. should have checked to see if posts were posted ahead of this.. hmmm I want to go visit that locale.
I think when there's enough will and aggression, there's no shortage of talent either.

Ya, well, it's now in the wrong state and embellished/ story changed for entertainment purposes... but it's still one hell of a thing, and really didn't need any b.s.

Quite cool to know it is the real deal...and I just re-read the actual events, the real story is more incredible than the one that got a little lost in translation as it made it's way through the e-mail world...

I guess I was wrong, see how easy it is to say things are fake on the internet? LOL. Very lucky indeed.
