I don’t mean to harp on Sunday morning’s Shia Lebeouf bang-up, but c’mon. It’s one thing to give or get a ding or a dent, but flipping your pickup truck at a major intersection (La Brea and Fountain) with pizza splattered all over the street and a major crater on the driver’s side door? That’s something out of the car-crash scene in Amorres perros.
I’ve been in two serious bangers — a BMW slammed into my right side in ’98, sending me spinning 270 degrees — but it takes a lot of speed and ferocity to flip a large pickup truck, lemme tell ya. Whoever did the initial reporting dropped the ball.
