There’s a nurse facing a lifetime prison sentence for killing five people by driving 130 miles per hour on a city street. By chance, this gas station security camera caught it (at about the 16 second mark). This is kind of fascinating, because if you blow it up to full screen size and watch it repeatedly, you’ll see just how instantly the cars around the accident react (in a nutshell, the human brains told their owners to GTFO ASAP). The woman at the gas station automatically starts walking backwards, too.
