Hope it never goes to court. There are tons of videos of him driving like a total douche that wouldn't help his case at all!!
Around here totally inadmissible and irrelevant. Only facts relevant are what happened in this case.

No she’s good to go even with all the Kill Bill body bags. Home invasion and self defense. She walks.
But your basic point is correct. 👍

It is called accident as I am sure Chris has not planned for that.
Everyone can make mistakes or accidents. I really dont understand being a Chevallier behind a keyboard.

luckily the airplane pilots drive 20 and more hours per week without having such stupid accidents

and their machines and the environment are way more complicated
than a GT3 on a road for kids...

What I am saying is none of the people in this forum has seen how he was driving.
Maybe fast maybe not. But there are some situation you cannot do much and avoid an accident.
And I am sure none in this forum drive with 10 mph all over. It is easy to judge than being an example.

‘that makes no sense planes have 5 mile separation in the air .....next time look out the window and do you see a plane next to you. Come on it’s an accident, and in the US you can’t do a 3 point turn on a two lane highway. The guy in the truck was pretty wreckless in my view, and the cop was on the scene so who are we to say what happen.

When you don t have full visibility you must slow down regardless it is a blind turn , an intersection , whatever , very simple no? that s all

Btw Onboarding Landing and taking off are from ground with a lot of traffic and big heavy planes here
eventhough i am not sure where you live

the meaning is
if you drive like a pro you don t
have any accidents unless
1) somebody hits you
2) the car get suddenly broken
3) you get something like an heart attack

which was not the case for monkeyharris.

The cause is related with stupidity thus no justification
Nomen omen.

Gosh I’ve been lucky on public roads. Thankfully I race now. God, please continue to impart wisdom upon me daily. Amen.

Friendly reminder that cold and wet and GT3 tires don’t mix (not saying that was an issue here, just friendly reminder).

Agree. Not religious but reminds me of “there but for the grace of god, go I”. Imagine if that had been someone’s kid around the corner instead of truck? So many lives ruined.... Yeah, I could probably smarten up a little.

I don’t think Chris drives like a douche as some suggest - puts the hammer down in the sticks, yes, but pretty low key in town. Cheap lesson for all

Cheers

You guys act like you've never driven your GT3's a little fast... C'mon, we're a bunch of men with 500hp cars. I'm sure he wasn't driving that recklessly.
