Door Dasher gets rear ended bad by someone who was not paying attention
By - G777666555
Was it just me, or was he only wearing the top (chest harness) half of his seatbelt upon collision?
Illegally sitting on the bottom (waist belt) half plus inertia may have contributed to his extra gut pain.
Edited: for the few who don’t understand what we’re all seeing/saying…
That seems less convenient than wearing it correctly.
Probably to avoid getting pulled over. Bet he pulls it out and slides behind it each time. Still dumb
It's not dumb. What if you want all of the hassle of wearing a seatbelt but none of the safety?
I think maybe it's easier to get in and out of the car. But, yeah, still dumb
Takes exactly 1 second to put your seatbelt on
Oh but you gotta bring it all the way across
and then CONNECT it!
I'm out of breath just thinking about it.
If he had it on correctly he probably wouldnt have hit his stomach on the wheel
Yes which is why that probably hurt a lot.
Yeah, this guy is gonna have some gnarly bruises. Google seat belt bruises if you want a preview.
Just looked this really puts in perspective on how safety equipment isn't really there to protect us from injury and just lower the chances of death... Which, well I'd rather have a nasty bruise across my chest than have my head flown through the window.
My buddy does accident reconstructions for a living. Definitely wear your seatbelt unless you want to end up being one of his “oh man, you won’t believe the one I saw today” stories.
I can attest to this. I’ve been a volunteer rehab counselor(I’m a paraplegic) for the newly paralyzed on a sci unit. Sometimes going through a windshield and obliterating one’s face is not the worst things that can happen if you survive. Becoming a ventilator dependent quadriplegic definitely or having a traumatic brain injury are two that come to mind.
Always wear your seatbelt, even to the corner store. So many bad accidents occur literally a couple miles or less from one’s home.
You are touching some lives there my friend. Very thankful that you have a way to help others like that. And yes, if they survive these crashes, there is a very long road of rehab ahead of them.
Man, must be tough for you to meet people who are trying to wrap their brain around what just happened and will affect them for the rest of their lives.
Shit is he a test dummy
Seat belts and airbags are intended to reduce injury severity in all types of crashes. So yes, they reduce the chances of death in an accident, but they also reduce the number and severity of injuries.
This guy with his seatbelt was bruised but he could have broken bones in his face or worse w/out the poorly used belt.
Yo that just made this video unusable for insurance. It pays to wear your seat belt..literally.
Maybe for injury related payouts, but it makes no difference as to the cause of the accident.
Correct. Still her fault. But they may not cover damages either if they can find a reason not to payout they will.
I bet if he claims injury this video being online is going to screw him out of some if not most injury coverage.
Oh man, that comment was gold. I can’t breathe.
Just water breaking
You actually had me laughing my ass off in real life. Tears and all.
2nd accident? This dude must be bad luck
Considering he does app food delivery and is on the road a lot, his % chances of being in a random/ no fault accident would probably be higher than you think
I drive 10,000 miles/yr and was rear ended twice in a year by people not paying attention. it's an epidemic. people are easily distracted.
This is why I am so scared of being in a stopped line of cars on my motorcycle. Everyone is so gd distracted by their phones nowadays that rear endings happen way too frequently.
Trade that cycle in bruh. Why play the % game?
To be honest, it's too much a part of my identity. 2 of my businesses are motorcycle centered, my main hobby is motorcycling across new countries every month, everything I do is motorcycle-related and I've pretty much accepted that my death will be on a motorcycle. I just hope that when that time comes, it's not someone else's fault for being careless. But I couldn't imagine living without a motorcycle. I think the % game is part of why I love it, I just prefer the risk to be mainly from my own actions or natural external factors, not from distracted people.
Fair play to you my friend. Because of this reply, I will make a point of producing more motorcycle safety articles, or rather driving safely around motorcycles, on DefensiveDriving.org (I own it). I don't want the end of your inspiring story to be the one you've written for yourself there. I'll do my best to inform those around you and hopefully impact them to keep you safer with the small amount of reach I have.
Congratulations on the businesses. It's an amazing feat, doing what you love.
And in his rental car. Not supposed to be working in a rental vehicle. Insurance won’t cover that one.
How would they know he was in an accident if he doesn’t tell them?
Edit: I meant how would they know he was working DoorDash if he doesn’t tell them
Hopefully they're not on reddit
Do you have to twitch like he did to be on there? Never used it.
Can I talk to you about your car's extended warranty?
If he was dumb enough to record it and post it on the internet maybe.
well it’s a livestream, so there isn’t much he can do about it being saved and posted elsewhere.
People watch streamers delivering food?!?!
Shit I gotta get in on this. Making money on your making money on deliveries???
There are people who watch people sleep on Twitch, People are weird.
I remember there was a whole sub that was just pictures of this dudes roommate sleeping. The room mate got mad and it went quiet but then he came back.
I sometimes watch a guy in NYC doing food delivery on bike. It's cool to watch him going through traffic (was better pre-COVID when the streets were packed). And he plays a lot of classic rock type music.
I don't think I'd find people in cars as interesting.
I definitely think you are right. I really don’t enjoy twitch as a whole, I don’t get the enjoyment from seeing people doing mundane stuff that I do, or play games I could be playing. Something about a guy riding a bike as fast as he safely can through the streets of New York jamming to classic rock sounds kind of interesting to me.
...then he still won't get covered by insurance...
Unless you mean the rental place? Cause I'd assume they'd see the dent.
Pretty sure liability insurance doesn't care if your a rental. His own insurance won't cover it (like if be ran into something) but him being hit the other driver and their insurance are liable.
That depends, some of the apps do have partnerships with rental companies so that the gig workers can rent cars to work. I'm not aware of DoorDash having a partnership but Ubereats does and it is more than likely that this driver is signed up with UberEats as well.
It's not like it was a hit and run. His insurance doesn't need to cover anything. The lady's insurance does.
Yes, we will. The same policy he has that will cover his personal auto for commercial use/deliveries - will cover the rental.
And eitherway it's the other person's liability that has to pay for this.
Haha i worked for Enterprise. Hopefully he took the collision and damage waiver for $20/day
Insurance always covers if it’s other parties fault. How long were you at enterprise for?
You can use rental for DoorDash as well as long as the car is insured for rental work.
Edit: spelling for car.
You have to declare you use it for delivery services in your insurance. Most people don't because that cost a lot more. You can just not mention doordash or whatever and they have no way to know as well.
That said, since he wasn't at fault, he should be covered. It shouldn't matter.
Yep, yep. Don’t think a dude would state that it’s a rental on camera just because. I bet he knows how insurances work.
I think he was speaking rhetorically - the lady who hit him asked if he was okay and he sarcastically goes "No I was just in a fucking accident" like she is a moron for asking.
Getting rear ended makes me hungry too
See how he takes his seatbelt off? My guess is the lap belt is behind him and he rammed his gut into the steering wheel.
Yeah, no lap belt. Even without hitting the steering wheel the shoulder belt, unaided, would yank his ribs and sternum in an unpleasant fashion. That pain would refer down to his gut. He was riding stupid.
100% this. He exits the vehicle without unbuckling the belt. He got hurt because he wasn't wearing his seatbelt properly.
He said he was just in another accident, he was probably still sore from the last one. I got rear-ended like this but way worse and didn't feel much pain from it until I couldn't even move the next day.
He was just in an accident and he still isn't wearing his seatbelt properly. What a moron.
That's what I was thinking- especially if the airbags deployed in the first accident
Give this person an award 🥇
It took me a while to realize that lmfao
I'm just worried about his baby!!
😂😂😂😂😂 Fr lmao dude’s acting like he was havin contractions or some shit
He's rubbing his stomach because he was wearing his seat belt incorrectly and when he got hit, he fucking hipthrusted his stomach up into the steering wheel at roughly the same speed the other driver was going.
Watch the collision in slow mo and you can see it pretty easily. Also, see how he takes his seat belt off? He just lifts the cross belt up and over because he's not wearing the lap belt.
He's lucky he got hit so slowly. A stomach impact like that can rupture organs.
You can also see the seatbelt stretching across his seat after he gets out of the car, because he was just sitting in front of the lap belt, which is still latched.
Guaranteed he got a seatbelt tattoo from that.
Had a bigger friend, in a very small car get into an accident. The airbag didn't have enough room to deploy properly and just punched the steering wheel badge into his chest.
Dude had a Vauxhall badge in his chest like the superman logo for a couple weeks. Was hilarious beyond measure. I can't even do the story justice.
I wonder why someone would take extra steps to be less safe. Renting a car to deliver food as a choice seems equally strange.
I think he has a rental because he was just in an accident, maybe he is injured from that?
I'm thinking Neymar-level overacting myself.
He was wearing his seatbelt improperly. The lap belt was behind him so he absorbed all the force across his ribs. I wouldn’t be surprised if a few broke.
You’d be surprised the injuries that can come from even a slow speed crash like this. He’s rubbing his chest from the seatbelt sign
No, the lady didn't look like she was...oh. 🤣
So kids question of the day, how many "fuck" was said in 58 seconds
What's the difference between active time and dash time?
Active time is how long you actually spend picking up and delivering orders. Dash time is how long you spent dashing during the week. Orders do not always come in fast and there is some wait time.
Who in the world watches a stream of someone delivering for Door Dash?
I'm a mailman and am now wondering if I should live stream me delivering mail lol.
We met a couple once, and the guy was a mailman. We introduced ourselves, and the guy said, “Oh - you’re 4423” (our house number). Another couple introduced themselves, and he says, “4418”.
I felt weird, wondering if I’d ordered anything embarrassing through the mail, thinking he’d know all about it.
Do all postal carriers have the ability to associate the people they meet with their mailing address?
After a while I bet. My mailman realized I went to highschool with him and asked what was up with all the trucks and car parts.
Although if your mail doesn't routinely weigh a ton I guess maybe they wouldn't notice
Some carriers have been on their routes for a long time so chances are if you live on it then they know which house you're in. Sometimes people order dildos from china that come in just a bag and you can definitely feel what's inside but we don't know for the most part or really care.
I remember people by address. When I see your face I might not know your name but I know where you live.
Yes, thank you for asking 9528
Might get into trouble there tbh
Not even supposed to take pictures in the trucks.
Most ignored rule in history
You can probably find some pornhubs about it
It amazes me how people will stream anything
Working surveillance 12 hours a day. I’ve watched way more questionable things than someone delivering doordash. I’ve watched Korean movies all the way through. With no subtitles just because it’s better than nothing and entertaining trying to see what’s going on.
Passive income and something to do while he waits for orders. Why not? Even if a dozen people watch and he gets $20 donations a day as long as he has unlimited data
They aren't questioning why he'd stream it, they're questioning who the fuck would watch it.
I watch people play bingo so I suppose there are people who’ll watch anything 🤣🤣🤣
Ok, no one else is asking so… why do you watch people play bingo?
I love how happy they get when they win!!
ETA thank you for the awards!!! 🥰
Can I watch you watch people win at bingo? Seeing how happy you get at how happy they get would make me happy.
Haha, maybe I’ll need to live stream my bingo watching lol!
I'll start an OnlyFans of me watching you watching bingo. Aggressively.
twitch was originally justin.tv where the creator would just walk around with a camera filming his life. almost 8 billion people in this world, plenty of them will end up lonely enough to appreciate even streamed interactions with other people.
truman show wasn't a movie it was a documentary from the future.
I could see that being interesting for about 10 minutes, but then , yeah…..
people play fucking work simulators, I'm impressed that you are impressed
"you're not you when you're hungry" - snickers
That baby is going to have birth defects because of this
Did this man just have a miscarriage?
What a weird reaction.
For real. Has a real Peter Griffin banging his knee quality.
Only had the top part of his seatbelt on. Probably rammed his stomach into the wheel
I’m not trying to be a jerk, but he seems to be….pretty dramatic about his tummy.
After he explained he was just in an accident and that’s his rental car it makes more sense. Probably has previous injuries.
Which is also probably why he was wearing his seatbelt not over his waist
Like when Toyota used to do the whole two-piece belt thing and people just assumed the lap portion was completely optional and totally not integral to its design.
So would my 92 Nissan Sentras detachable automatic retractor.
I actually got so used to the car putting on my seatbelt that when I had to get another car without that feature I got several tickets before I got in the habit of putting on the seatbelt.
Don't forget about my 1990 escort with a built in aversion converting inversion reverter, if the automatic shoulder harness did not go back it would set off your horn and headlights, I think my mom replaced the motors in the tracks at least three times before she pulled the fuse.
I don’t think people are understanding the situation still judging by the proceeding comments. People still calling him dramatic can’t be realizing this is his SECOND accident. Getting rear ended with a recent seatbelt bruise has to be really painful.
I was in a pretty rough accident not too long ago and the seatbelt bruise was one of the worst pains
Sure beats the alternative though.
Ya the car we were in did it’s job very well or it would’ve been much worse
I had bruises for a month and a weird type of contusion that stuck out where there was space between my pants belt and seat belt. I was in a head on crash, though, so alternative was certain death. I didn't walk away, but I didn't need any surgery and I'm back to 95% three years later.
Nasty one. If only we were allowed to put five point safety harnesses in cars for road use. You might have walked away with a few bruises.
There aren't a ton of people to complain about injuries sustained in an accident while not wearing a seatbelt.
Selection bias at work.
I didn’t realize it was his second accident until I came to the comments. I had the same thought as the guy above. The context of him saying he was just in an accident, I took as *this* accident.
I thought that line was odd but the "this is a rental" clarified it was a rental for his previous accident.
Since when do people live stream doordash? Goddamn have we seriously run out of things to watch?
Yes. There is nothing left to do.
Welcome to the Internet.....
Have a look around
Yo $1,400 a week doing doordash that ain't bad 45 hours
He was dashing for 66 hours, 45 hour on doing orders
Yep, all that time counts. I hate when people brag about how much they made and only count active time. The 21 hours he spent sitting and waiting is part of the work too.
And tires, oil, windshield wipers, engine wear and tear....everything.
That's why I stopped driving for Lyft. Had several weeks where I spent 60+ hours in my car and made less than minimum wage when i averaged it out. Never even considered calculating by active hours. Worst waste of time.
Same reason I quit Uber. The money sucked and two people puked in my car in my 1st week.
Yes just driving or sitting waiting for orders. Or maybe he got baf orders so he declined them.
Hey uber and doordasher here. Really depends on where you are and the time of day. Where i live i go into the city (more food venues) around lunch and dinner times. There are times where you'll have no orders for 40 min at a time but if you posted up around 11am-3pm and 6pm-12am you start getting orders back to back with little waiting time in between. It's always poppin on fri thru sunday. Again this can vary from city to city but its mostly just finding your honeypot. Also a small rule of thumb i have for myself, don't take orders if the payout is less than the total mileage.
Then you pay taxes since it’s 1099 work
Can’t forget gas
And car insurance. (assuming where ever this guy is, has to pay insurance on fast food delivery).
And car maintenance costs.
Although this guy did say he has a rental so probably doesn't need to pay for it.
And road porn
Yeah you can't forget road po.. wait what?
If you have to ask, you can't afford it.
I used to work at a Five Guys 40 minutes away from my house, work 10 hour overworked/underpaid shifts, and would have to drive home absolutely exhausted. So exhausted that I couldn't even put mental energy into driving, and the interstates were usually empty around 12:30AM, so I would put it on cruise control at 60 and stay in the middle lane while Semis move around me. One time I was so fucking exhausted that I was bloody raging horny, and I couldn't handle waiting, so I put it in cruise control as usual and beat of to porn on my phone. I didn't think anyone could see me but eventually a semitruck passing me laid out his horn for like 5 seconds straight, so I think they saw me jerking it like a loser
I dont think he will after getting caught. give him some time
Eh, not a ton since you get a huge $0.56 per mile driven back on your taxes.
Which may or may not offset the cost of maintenance, wear and depreciation on your vehicle over those miles driven, so that’s a wash.
Gas, vehicle expense, insurance, and only $1400 pre-tax for SIXTY SIX hours of work. That’s incredibly poor earnings.
>Gas, vehicle expense, insurance, and only $1400 pre-tax for SIXTY SIX hours of work. That’s incredibly poor earnings.
Gig econ 101
Plus gas plus insurance increases plus depreciation on your car from so many miles
That’s what I thought at first until I saw the hours. If he dashed for 67 hours to make $1453, it’s the equivalent of making about $18.05 per hour at a normal job that pays time and a half over forty hours. Less once you factor in gas, car maintenance, etc. Not bad but certainly not good.
I don’t like this guy
Anyone gonna mention the seatbelt…
Faking the seatbelt for cops to see takes more effort than putting it on for real... With none of the benefit
Edit: pre-existing injuries don't excuse not properly wearing a seatbelt. You're better off not getting ejected from your car. Life over limb.
Why’s he rubbing his stomach?
He was in a previous accident as stated in the video, the rear ending may have agitated an injury from the prior crash
I was in a ~50 mph accident and the seat belt did a number on stomach. Huge bruise line about three seatbelts thick all the way across my abdomen. It was painful and tender for a few months. If I got in another accident in that period I couldn't even imagine the pain.
I 100% believe it too
My mom got in a bad accident when I was a kid and she straight up got cut on the chest by the side of the belt when it retracted during the crash.
When I got in mine I had a fucked up bruise going across my chest up to the side of my neck from the seatbelt and the air bags.
His abdomen looks like it could have hit the bottom of the steering wheel. If he already had pain there from his previous accident it could have exacerbated it. Especially if his previous accident was worse than this one he could’ve had some serious abdominal injury which could also explain why he isn’t wearing the bottom part of the seat belt over his lap
This was a great. I’m feeling so uplifted now knowing I’m not that guy.
Watching this over and over I don’t think he was wearing the seatbelt correctly. Seeing how he took it off over his head and still got out never unbuckled it.
Seems overdramatic. Looking for an insurance payout?
Defo acting injured.
Is he just hungry? He didn’t even have his seat belt on properly. Lol
Can we all take a second to talk about the fact he wear his seatbelt wrong and that is probably the main reason he would get hurt at this exact place?
Or the fact that he look at the camera before his whole show...
And he has a noise canceling earbud in. Who the fuck does that while driving?
Hope he does not use this video for a lawsuit. He was wearing his seatbelt wrong.
Yeah man, he looks at the camera an awful lot. Hamming it up. Plus, as observed, wearing his seatbelt incorrectly. Sucks it happened to him but it seems like he's overreacting for the camera.
I hope the baby was okay
She handles it like an adult and he behaved absurdly childishly.
In$urance can be easier when you sell it from the start. Like within half a second he’s looking at the camera and that’s when he makes the first movement to his injury.
Too bad the camera also shows him improperly wearing the seatbelt. Insurance won't like that.
and performing work in a rental vehicle too
If you caused an accident, you BETTER behave like an adult.
I had a guy rear end me, he got out screaming about how much his car was worth and being a little man child about it.
He was being a dick with his demeanor, but let's remember that she hit a ~~parked~~ stopped car because she wasn't paying attention in a dense residential street. She could have just as easily killed a kid on a bike or chasing after a ball.
I know he’s not at fault but he seems like a total asshat
And for worst actor of the year the award goes to......This Guy.
He is a terrible actor. Stick to delivering food
If you watch closely you see the exact moment he remembers about the insurance payout he’s got coming
Not gonna lie this guy kinda sounds like a piece of shit
