    >SMOKEY was Jackie Gleason in the first show ...

    Was telling smokey in the vid to move it & get out of the way Bandit didn't make out on this one so good.

    The FB must have been closing pretty fast by the time he tried to go around on the left...if that was what he was doing. I'd love to see video out the back during all this...

    This little episode ought to give the highway guys a chuckle...now they have to re-calculate the barricade height so the next Knievel launches better and clears the overpass... Maybe they'll consider renaming it Snake River.

    Let's go down to the field and watch the replay while we wait on the judges.

    That had to hurt. Too late to stop, once you're airborn.

    A sign of the times?

    Can we look forward to this guy showing up on Oprah in his "Steven Hawking Custom" motorized wheelchair denouncing driving and texting at 100mph?

    Maybe he had a "Bandit Special Edition" malfunction. Wait for it, wait for it,...

    I like how in the article below they mention how it was a 95 Firebird. And I did catch it when they said they are wondering if speed was a factor....YA THINK?

    STUPID!!!! :-)

    I saw a report on the news that I think said, the driver was in critical condition after surgery. Amazing anyone survived that.
