Is the driver of this Ford Ranger driving under the influence? From the looks of this four-minute-long video where he or she pinballs repeatedly between ditch and center line and narrowly misses oncoming traffic, it certainly looks like the wheelman is soggy drunk.

This four-minute+ video catches all the stupidity from the first off-road foray at about 40 seconds all the way to an expertly executed nosedive into a ditch. The impromptu videographers do a a fine job commentating on every jerky move as they attempt to warn oncoming drivers.

There's high drama at various points throughout the video, and in the end, the driver is lucky that the conclusion isn't worse.

Before you ask, from the audio, it sounds like the videographers called the cops before starting his camera. We assume the authorities showed up soon after the truck's violent sudden stop, and presumably hauled the driver off to either jail, hospital or morgue. Either way, watching the video is a sobering reminder of the stupidity of driving under the influence. Watch the video by scrolling down, but bear in mind there is some foul language.

      The nerve of some people to drive after they are under the influence of drugs or alcohol is just disgusting.

      sounds to me like the guys filming did the right thing. call the cops, try to alert other people without endangering themselves. they were hoping the guy wrecked by himself rather than continuing onward.

      The people driving/filming did what they could do... if they would have attempted to stop them, or do ANYTHING else the outcome could have been even worse. As long as they called the cops and THEN started filming... they are golden. As you can see it's a 2 lane road, they can't exactly go around him, and why would they turn around if they had to go that way anyway? They kept their distance and hoped for the best. I've been behind someone who was drunk driving, and bounced the side of their car off a concrete divider doing about 70mph... they didn't stop/slow down but just kept on going. I was on the phone with the cops and kept my distance. It was night so I couldn't see a plate number but I gave the best description of the car and followed on the highway (from a distance) as long as it was the same way I was going. I didn't follow all the way but I really really hope a cop got ahold of them based on the info and locations I gave them. I love a good drink but like most people here (im assuming) I'm responsible and will NOT drive if I've had more than one or two in a night. If you are convicted of a DUI, not only should it cost you jail time and a lot of money, but ANY repeat means you lose you driving rights for life, and are hit with an attempted manslaughter or murder charge. What just blows my mind is how there are people in this country who have 3,4,5... or TEN DUI convictions and still are walking the streets. If you are a repeat offender or cause the death of a car full of innocent people, your execution should be VERY public and very speedy. No appeals, no do-overs, no apologies. Drunk drivers make me sick.

        I just wish the d-bag didn't instruct the driver to "get right up on his ass"....he had young children in the car...if the drunk driver had gotten in an accident on the road, it would have affected them...

      What in the hell... This guy could have killed pretty much anyone driving the other way. I hope they threw the book at him

      This person needs to have their license taken away for years, if not permanently.

      "I wish I were driving because I might take him out with a PIT maneuver"... What?

      My stomach drops every time I see someone driving even half as bad as this. Really terrifying.

      I love how the camera guy tells the kid in the backseat to be quiet, so that he can keep mindlessly babbling. :D Seriously though, I'm infuriated that someone would shamelessly put so many people's lives in danger.

      That had me cringing on the edge of my seat just watching the video. I hope that person doesn't drive for a long long time, he's lucky he didn't kill some innocent person.

      Inconsiderate douchebag... and... hot cheetos anyone? lol reflection on right side :P

      Hard to say what the best thing to do in a situation like this is. I wonder if it would have been a good idea for the guys in the truck to gen around him, and start slowing down to get the guy to stop. He was obviously awake enough to react to the other cars. then again, that would be putting themselves at risk more.....
