    Camaro hit train - The driver walks away



    from the article:
    According to the news report, Darrell McCown of Conroe, Texas (the seat of Montgomery County, about 40 miles north of Houston) was southbound on FM 1485 when he lost control on a curve near the tracks and managed to cover almost 100 feet before striking the eastbound train.

    According to the story he was drunk and or high and charged with DWI.

    The train didn't even know it had hit anything and didn't stop for several miles.

    Camaro saved the life of an idiot DWI driver... This is my favorite part:

    Meanwhile, the train kept a ‚Äėrollin, with the crew not realizing there had been a crash until subsequently informed of the incident.

    Yes. Camaro has amazing low-speed lift characteristics. Some have said it's like a V/STOL.
