    I prefer not to telegraph what happened here so that the video can tell the story by itself. But it does involve a delivery mishap by a fed ex driver. One can argue it should be in another forum.. whatever!

    I used the title from the video, but I don't consider it a "gem". I am just glad it didn't go as badly for the driver as it could have.

    If the video has been posted already, then I apologize.

    A roll away with an automatic is pretty pathetic.

    To be fair, that driver had probably already worked 70 hours that week.

    Yeah. The fed ex guys I see have their bulk head open all day too. Car never stops running. Might take one on my day off or something. Lol.

    This driver was incredibly lucky that it didn't hit anything important or hurt someone.

    He was very lucky, someone in the comments on youtube pointed out that the open door hitting the tree , in conjunction with the bounce from the curb, changed the path of the van so that it missed the house.
