March 5th I was in an accident out on the interstate here in Omaha, NE. Not the biggest or coolest wreck in the world, but I was super lucky, because a state trooper had someone pulled over, and his in car dash camera caught the entire thing on tape.

The wreck happens about 40 seconds into the video. And what happens, just so you know what to look for, Almost all the way to the right, you'll see a bronco hit its brakes, the white pickup behind her hits her in the back corner, pushing her into my lane....then you'll see a gmc sonoma coming into the picture (thats me! thats me!). Next thing you see if a puff of smoke. Listen to the state trooper, his comment is the funniest part of the tape.

By the way, the video is approximately 5.1 megs, so if you're on a slow connection, you may want to skip this.

Glad to see you were not hurt. I guess if you're going to have your car trashed, it's (<---see Peter) cool that you have it on video.

Actually, I was just coming back from the car dealership. I had decided on the car I wanted...except for the color. I was on my way home to pick up my girlfriend so I could bring her back to let her help me pick out the color.

My truck was totaled out, and luckily, i got about $2000 more for it from insurance that I would have recived for a trade in.

So, the state trooper was testing the poor driver for alcohol/drug influence??? -- never heard of that particular test procedure, which is so funny...

the guy he was testing was a young kid, probably 18. He was stoned out of his mind. I got to speak with him for a few minutes while I sat in the cop car. He was telling me how my accident was an act of god, because he was not going to get arrested now. I kinda chuckled as they took him away still.

If I were at all interested in any form of law enforcement, highway patrol (or state trooper for you non-Californians) is what I'd choose. Sure, it might not be any less dangerous than police, but you sure would get a lot of great stories.
