  • Why is that road open? Texas isn't the only region that let's their drivers wander around on ice the video from Missouri had a thoroughly useless Cop talking to a tow truck driver by the side of the highway just watching drivers slam into a bridge all covered in Black ice. Ya know I rack it all up to the delusional state of alleged mind of these people to not believe anything is real until it whacks them right in the head.

  • You can safely give at least 2 Darwin awards out now. Those two in the beginning will for sure earn there's at some point soon...jeez.

  • Natural selection taking its course. If you’re too stupid to get out of the way you are going to get run over!

  • Hahaha I love it.

  • I know it's cliché to accuse Texans of not knowing what to do in the cold... But if you're just slid down an icy hill, don't stand in the middle of the road wondering why the car sliding toward you won't stop. If a car takes you out it's Darwinism.

  • thought “jurassic park 2” (boat scene) got it wrong. I guess not. people do wait to get hit by moving objects.

  • Well. Austin is full of liberals, so don’t expect too much logic from those people.

  • Getting out of the car and standing there was a very dumb idea...

  • Ice and a hill for a street glad im from the midwest i can look at the street and tell its iced and hasn’t been salted i would’ve stayed home didnt none of those people have horse?

  • The driver at the end clearly was from the Northeast

  • Makes sense that so few of them know how to handle ice like that. This is the worst situation you can put a southerner in lol

  • I'm an asshole, I couldn't help laughing

    • @Allan Patterson I know, man.

      Jake HekeJake HekeHónapja
    • The snow becomes glazed in tire tracks. The snow also has drag which slows you down so you can at least slow to a stop.

  • Oh gosh. Let OFF the brake guys 😬 Let off the break and feather it. When you slide, let off, then brake slightly, let off again, brake slightly, let off again...that's the pattern.

    no more blue states sucks lifeno more blue states sucks lifeHónapja
  • moral of the story is: see ice and slam on breaks 😂

    John GibbsJohn GibbsHónapja
  • I get Texans not being accustomed to snow and sliding but theres no excuse for NOT moving out of the way of a 4,000 lb. car coming at you. Guess you can't fix stupid.

  • Just a tip from a northerner, never get out of your car until it is over. It's the safest place to be.

  • 0:00 great idea - stand and watch how car slides towards you!

  • 0:34 this has to be worth some points

  • 0:06 - 0:10 Monkey sound?

  • It's amazing that they would leave their vehicle and expect the next car not to hit them. Typical liberals😤😤😤

    John WhiteJohn WhiteHónapja
  • Morons standing there try to move the cars if you can’t gtfo And warn oncoming drivers

  • Love it 😆 🤣 😂

  • Don't ever be the people waiting for the slow rolling car to catch up to you and hit you. Just casually walk out of the way at least

  • What a pair of twats. They could have been killed there. But to be honest it’s soo funny watching all us numb nuts trying to drive in the snow that have no clue 🤣

  • 😂😂😂 have they ever heard about putting chains on your tires to go on ice?

    • @Jr. Moreno that's why this video exist right? Great logic if you just watched the evidence.

    • @McNihilation haha i would to just from writeoffs i worked my way up to a 10k car from a 1k car.

    • 👍 I would've parked my car out there too... I could really use some money right about now.

  • can tell that they're southern drivers and not yankee drivers

  • slick move or luck with that silver suv

  • I understand people living where they do but come on, there are enough HUworld videos accessible even in TX to give them an idea, or perhaps, once in their lifetime just travel somewhere where there is snow, just a short fly away, no passport needed. I’m gonna yell at a car that is out of control and perhaps it will stop.

  • As someone from New Jersey we have Texas summers and Russian winters so I truly feel for these people and it's unfortunate to see .Luckily everyone was ok but people listen if an SUV is sliding toward you try to run away from it standing by the car waiting for impact isn't gonna help that lady by the driver side door was lucky she didn't lose her away from the car or jump in and close the doors the least thing you wanna be is a human barrier between two vehicles or get hit by a vehicle that's getting hit by another vehicle

  • Deregulation they say.. will save Texas lots of money... reality... it cost lives and a lot of money due to incompetence. Do better Texas, elect a governor and senators that care about you.

    • Third graders know about deregulation? Really? I guess it takes third- grade level math to not understand that Texas hasn't ever had a need for a massive fleet of plows or salt trucks. Ever. Since the development of the automobile. But you think they should have spent untold billions maintaining such a fleet for a century. Ok, genius.

      James EnglandJames EnglandHónapja
    • @James England Ask any third grader to explain to you how deregulation factored into this, or you can research the info for yourself. But I’ll give you a hint, it’s called being prepared. Lmao

    • What does deregulation have to do with record snow and ice in a state that almost never sees any of that? They supposed to regulate the weather?

      James EnglandJames EnglandHónapja
  • What a bunch of idiots . Why would you even get out of your car if you see a car coming down the hill ?
