Winter driving brings all kinds of craziness to the roads. It’s not uncommon to see cars spinning out, sliding into intersections and being stuck in the ditch. But Thomas Goodman of Utah captured a whole new kind of winter driving absurdity on video when he saw a driver-less Buick Le Sabre making its way southbound down the I-15.
We knew autonomous driving was on the way. But we didn’t think it would happen so soon.
Apparently, a man was seen sitting in a snow bank on the side of the road looking distraught. A short time later, Goodman passed an early 90’s Buick Le Sabre with significant front end damage driving itself down the left side of the road, its horn blaring the entire time. It became clear to Goodman that the car had been involved in some sort of collision and decided to flee the scene, leaving it’s driver stranded on the side of the road.
KUTV in Utah picked up the story and is reporting that neither Goodman nor the Utah Highway Patrol know what ended up happening to the man and his phantom Buick. Check out the video of the incident below.
