Do you think he was sat there thinking "hope my airbags work" or "pass me the toilet paper please".

Two very lucky people, first one in the car that nearly had a slight fender bender and the second one was in the car doing the filming, still can't figure out how they staged it.

What makes you think they staged it?

The big boulder [ if they can move it along the road a bit ] would make a smashing landmark/tourist-attraction for that nearby MacDonalds establishment.

... then again, it might make people run for cover!

I once drove around a corner in Oregon and was confronted with a landslide that had obviously only just happened. There were two cars in front of me, and the driver of the lead car said he passed that way twice every day, and there had been no sign of a problem two hours ago.

The debris was five feet deep across the road, and it shook me up to think how quickly these things can happen. The boulder in your link obviously weighed many tons, and would have killed everyone instantly, had it hit the car.

Drove from Fort William to Oban down the coast road, walked into the CO OP in Oban and on the Radio it announce the coast road was blocked due to a landslide. Can only have happened a very short time after I had pasted.

If that large rock had tilted a fraction more the white car would be scrap (or scraped up off the road).
