I would need new underwear if I was in the passenger seat.
This may be a good time to add the Ford music (from the 50's) words: "It's the greatest car it's the best by far, it's a Ford, it's a Ford. Get behind the wheel it's the car you feel, it's a Ford, it's a Ford."

Any idea what happened here
Tim, I can't find out much of note; no details of how/why it happened, driver has minor injuries, road closed all day because heavy lifting equip had to come from Kalgoorlie.
When I saw it was a road train I thought, ooh that's a lot of dead/injured/panicking cattle, but another picture shows all four trailers were solid sided and roofed - general cargo vans.

That's the good thing about Velveeta, it doesn't need refrigeration and it is as bouncy as rubber, so a sudden shock will have little effect. If the boxes are damaged, you might get a good bargain on a few cases.

Regards!

Maybe the explanation is that the driver was an exhibitionist and wanted to show off his lower parts, normally hidden from view.

Wow, never seen anything like that! Wonder how much effort it took to clear streets for that?

I think his sponsors pick up the tab for the overtime for the cops, permits to shut down city streets, etc. This guy has done this many times now. Here he is ripping up the streets of San Francisco:

This one is pretty cool too. I like it because I have a Subaru too, but mine is a Legacy wagon, not an Imprezza. Still the guy clearly has a job that many people would love to have.

I imagine that they handle it just like other movie shoots, where they close off a block or blocks. Based on the changing number of tire marks in the various locations, I'm also thinking it's shot as a series of set pieces, perhaps over several days, and brought together through the magic of editing.

And since I spend far too much time watching videos like this, a K3 is definitely not for me.

I can handle that ... I had seen the SF one a while back, but not the other one.

The Mustang one was my favorite for many sentimental reasons ... I once had a '67 Fastback with a 390/C-6/AC/Power all/California interior ... a nice ride.

Something like this ... but cannot tell if it's a tilt-away steering wheel pictured. It should be one.

Australian slang meaning antisocial and unacceptable road behavior. I believe that qualifies.
