Anyone who has ever driven a car for a long period of time or at night has, at some point, probably come close to nodding off. Your eyes get heavy and the rumble strip becomes your best friend. That’s the thing, though. When we hit the strip, we realize what the hell is going on and we get our shit together. Paul Yearley — the man behind the wheel of the Ford Mustang in this video — did not do that. That’s because he suffers from a previously unknown medical condition that knocks him the fuck out. Or so he says…

Previously unknown medical condition caused a crash on 4/2/2015. I have never passed out in 26 years, but suddenly passed out and crashed. The new mustang I bought was trashed.
The bullshit police are bound to come out of the woodwork on this. The one thing I noticed, and I’m not a terribly observant person, is that he seems to turn off his cruise control right before he “passes out.” Seems a little too convenient, doesn’t it? Not to mention the fact that he was heading right back to the road, which would have put him in REAL DANGER, and the car magically decided to slow down, turn back around and hit another tiny fence post.
That is the “Off” button for the cruise control, isn’t it?
I’m not saying he didn’t legitimately pass out while driving this car, but I’m not saying he did either.
