Near Miss for GTA Driver

Might be rejected as too common, but I’ll give it a go anyways.

The LAPD is currently offering $1000 to anyone who can find this ‘GTA Driver’ who jumped an intersection with a tesla in a Californian neighbourhood on March 20th. The ill-advised jump resulted in the car landing inaccurately and front slamming into the road before making a swift getaway from the scene. A quick mention, this jump was imitating youtuber David Dobrik’s stunt a while ago, where he attempted the same act in the same neighbourhood.

A resident of the area gave the insightful and ‘common’ reaction of “Holy Shit”.

For what it’s worth, there’s also a video of this, which might be able to save my case on why this should be accepted into the slush pile.

Until next time, Hugh

I'm actually willing to give this a nod for an HM because of the video. True there are lots of idiot drivers out there who like to think they're the next Evel Knievel, but they don't all have crowds of folks filming their escapades while they crash a rental car like that. Thanks, Hugh.
