Whoever took the footage on YT is a complete tool. Instead of filming he should have made his way up the highway to warn oncoming vehicles of what was ahead!

Reminded me of a similar small scale event more than a few decades ago.
As I went around a bend on a short dual carriageway city road I found the car gracefully spinning around. The car ended up facing the wrong way so I drove (slowly) back around the bend over the now obvious very large oily sheen. Not a busy road with hardly any vehicles. With my car headlights on parked to encourage vehicles to slow down I simply waved down a couple of cars and then used a nearby phone box to report the situation.
Of course I had no mobile to record any "amusing" accidents or any internet to post them on.
That must be part of today's problem.

I know it's been done several times, that is fake accidents/illnesses/attacks, to see who walks away or who does something.
I think the "those who walk away" numbers haven't changed. But now we all have the curse of the mobile/video recorder so a lot of the potential "doers" now do this instead of any direct help.
