    From every angle in the intersection's red light cameras, with added bonus of slow motion to boot!

    Looks like the guy running the red got the worst of it at least.

    Or his passenger did.
    I saw this on the news and they said that miraculously there were no serious injuries.
    That intersection sure has comprehensive video coverage.
    Must not be the first problem there, but that guy didn't even slow down!

    I just noticed that panel truck never stopped either, almost like he didn't see it, although it happened right in front of him.
    Maybe he pulled over when he got through the intersection?

    And all of this was used as a selling point to get red light cameras installed......

    He was drunk.
    Roselle Park, New Jersey Police Chief Paul Morrison releases video of spectacular crash at Locust Street and Westfield Avenue to show danger of running a red light « CBS New York

    It amazes me how many drunks walk away although they may kill others.
    I imagine the other driver will be traumatized for some time, though thankfully wasn't injured.

    Interesting.
    That intersection was blanketed with cameras but they sure didn't make it any safer from one speeding drunk.

    Yeah that was on our local Philly news. Yup the driver was drunk, but I thought he was seeing how high up the pole he could get. Maybe he was trying to touch the light.

    This crap happens all the time and people still never learn. At least someone can use this video in court to to show it was all the drunk drives fault.
