      Was probably hitting the meth pipe and took his eyes off the road.

      Absolutely astounding. He just clipped the first guard rail (which took out the oil pan), completely cleared the road and second guard rail, and landed on the bottom half of the hill.
      I'm almost ready to call bullhsit, I don't see how he could have carried that much speed, for that long of a distance, up that steep of a grade.
      Looks legit, but......

      So, was the air horn playing 'la cucaracha' instead of 'dixie' as it went airborne off that embankment?

      Volo! Volo!, Nunca toco la segunda valla!. It does appears that the eye witness confirms the truck did fly over the road and only clipped the first guardrail and the other road after.

      More after the jump!

      That was a long run-up to the overpass. Must have been going at quite a clip well before he hit the grass, because it looks like the grass didn't slow him down at all.
