i just saw that over at the rangerstation.com looks real to me, dont know why the driver would have been filming. i had the volume cranked, weird noise at the end. airbag didnt go off, wasnt a scream. brakes maybe? the speedometer went to zero pretty quick. its hardly the fault of the truck pulling the trailer. whoever it was is lucky it didnt go through behind the wheel! im surprized there wasnt swaering on the film. i swore just watching it.

I had that happen with a 1x4 that was not tied onto the guys ladder rack correctly. it hit the pavement bounced up and smashed my hood and roof on my cavalier. it freaked the living hell out of me to see this board flying at me. the construction company was pretty cool about it though. i took my car to my repair shop, and got a quote and went to the companies office and the owner cut me a check since i was moving out of state in two weeks.

id say fake not knowing any better, the trailer did lift as if it was running over something, the driver didnt freak out, and the windsheild is suposed to spider crack everywhere...i think...

not nessasarily. i once got mad trying to put a radiator in, couldnt get the cooler line hooked up. closed the hood and threw the line wrench through the windshield. picked the wrench up off the back seat. i didnt have a bunch of spidercracks. i did have to go get a winshield the next weekend from a junkyard ($25) temper can cost you money at times.

why would you ever throw a wrench through your windshield?

Yeah, I got pissed off at my old 99 Ranger......so I punched the passenger door window and broke it. Felt good too.

But I regret doing it cause I lost $100 in profit...

I vote it is real. I had this happened to me 3 weeks ago...only the 2X4 was a 125lb deer running out of the woods full speed in broad day light. Happened this quick too. I didnt yell or scream, I did the exact same thing this lady did. Slam the breaks then pulled over. The deer's should busted a hole through my windsheild, cracked where it's head hit but the window stayed intact.
