Click above to watch the video after the jump


Is this a highway or the set of a new Bruce Willis flick? What appears to be a cell phone-wielding cameraman has captured some timely highway footage of a truck driver hauling more than just a few dozen tons of potentially hazardous liquid. We have no idea how a vehicle, apparently a Renault Clio, could possibly find itself in such a precarious and perpendicular position, but we're even more puzzled as to how the truck driver could possibly pass other vehicles in traffic without noticing a 3,000 pound vehicle on its nose.

Assuming this is real and not some sort of staged stunt, we're sure hope the driver of the Clio escaped this unfortunate incident unharmed, because otherwise we would feel really guilty about the fact that we laughed at the fact that the brake lights were flashing on and off. Like that was going to do anything. Check out the video for yourself by hitting the jump. The video footage is admittedly less than great, but we feel the bizarre nature of the subject matter is worth a look.

      Just checked the company's website:
      "At Arclid Transport we are committed to placing customer requirements’ at the forefront of our agenda. We understand the importance of our deliveries to your company, and therefore ensure a personal and efficient service is always provided."
      Very efficient indeed apparently.

      How!? How does that happen??? The car doesn't even look damaged.

      Not to make another Toyota joke, but more of a "common driver's" joke. Much like Toyota owners don't know how to put a car in neutral or turn it off to stop it, this guy doesn't seem to have a clue how to get out of there.

      First things first: hit the horn!! Get the driver's attention! Second: Accelerate like hell to get out of there. If that doesn't work, then climb out the window and wave hello!

      Cool! I had never seen a Toyota truck before.
        • 4 Years Ago
        LOL thats the funniest thing I have ever heard
        • 4 Years Ago
        Given that Hino is a truck-building subsidiary of Toyota, yes, it's quite possible.
        • 4 Years Ago
        wow!... are the Toyota jokes ever gonna stop?!
        • 4 Years Ago
        OK, you got me man!

        FYI, the Toyota jokes will never end.
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think Toyota owners are asking a similar question, Italy.

      FAKE: He's in the fast lane (? right), no one in front or beside him. Early seconds of the video show a ton of headlights behind it, but no other car insight.

      Run away Toyota Truck? lol
        • 4 Years Ago
        You're not a compliment!
        • 4 Years Ago
        you're a little late.

        and please people the Toyota jokes were never funny, and now they're just annoying. If you must try and be funny, find some originality.
        • 4 Years Ago
        It didn't come off that way. But, if that's the case then...good job?
        • 4 Years Ago
        HA! This guy's a regular Dane Cook!

        (That's not a compliment)
        • 4 Years Ago
        I think you're missing something here mlcolvin.


        The fact that I used a Dane Cook isn't funny joke, to tell Level that the Toyota's can't stop jokes aren't funny, is meant to be ironic.
        • 4 Years Ago
        you're right; now that I see it again, that video clip is dictation how to stop a run away Toyota...
      • 4 Years Ago
      A Toyota truck? Or a Hino? You bunch of jokers :P It's just a Daf XF105 Space Cab (or a XF95, hard to see, when there's a car on the grill). Well, the Clio driver is beeing a lucky guy (or woman), just think what happend when the car roll over.
