    Default Magnus Walker Crashes 911 With TV Reporter Aboard

    No injuries. He lost the back end while rounding a corner.

    Granted I have done plenty of dumb stuff in my youth, you would think a grown man would know better than drive like that on a two lane road with oncoming traffic....

    Good thing the transporter ramp was where it was, it could have been much worse!

    This is a vintage event. Looks like he hit, or almost hit, a 1960s SL. What if it was a $1+million Gullwing or something even more expensive? But yeah, i was really surprised the rear end stepped out under braking.

    The video really shows the pendular effect of the rear weight bias.
