A driver waits patiently at a large busy intersection for a traffic light to change from red to green. Once it does, he drives the car straight through the intersection, only to be the unfortunate victim of timing as a pickup truck speeding through the red light passes directly in front of him too late to avoid a raucous collision that causes the truck to screech into a rollover stop. After the wreck, a green Challenger still able to be seen by the dashcam does a very strange thing.

"As an auto claims adjuster I can tell you dashcams are your best friend," writes commenter @sweetness_abby.
"Bro pulled his GTA phone out after," surmises @s4tan11.
"Props to the Challenger for actually cutting traffic to help," says @yapaneseyobeye.
Is that what the Challenger is doing? Perhaps it is really scooting the scene for some reason before the police arrive.
"Even looking both ways a normal person would assume they’re pulling up to the light and stopping, not going through," writes @amandarosephotography.
"How did you manage to hold yourself to 'gosh dang it!'" asks @dakprescottisoverpaid.
