Valley resident George Lindell was driving to a Boston Market in north Phoenix to grab some grub last week, when he was rear-ended by an SUV. The SUV then swerved to avoid hitting another vehicle, causing the driver to lose control and crash into a utility poll, bringing down power lines.
"It was like 'Bam!' I got hit hard, and it was like getting hit by a...train," Lindell, in the most animated recreation of a car wreck we've ever heard, told reporters.
Lindell escaped the wreck unscathed, but, as he also points out during his account of the wreck, "reality hits you hard, bro!"
The video is making the rounds on the Interwebs, and for good reason -- it's awesome.
