So he'd never heard of an emergency brake? He stopped the car, left it in neutral, got out and moved behind it on an incline, . . .


I did that ONCE. Left car in neutral on an incline by mistake. I did not, however, turn my back to the car. I jumped back in and stopped it from rolling.

Now, I turn the engine off, put it in park and pull break - - EVERY time I get out of the car. Even if its only for a couple seconds, or in the driveway.

I did that too, I had a manual car no park, I jumped out on my driveway and it rolled backward. The door hit me.

Now I make sure to always use the e-brake.

Two words.

Tragic...... Bizarre.

Sad but stuff like this happens all the time. I once knew a great old retired Veterinarian who, one winter, was accidentally killed by his wife of 40 + years after a bad snow storm, she backed the car over him in the driveway.





40+ years married you say?

What an unfortunate accident!!

Well this sucks. I haven't really seen him in anything I didn't like. It's going to be rough watching the new Trek now. It will change the entire feeling of the movie for me.

RIP Anton.

Powerful laser beam fired by satellite at the handbrake, thus releasing it. You know they can do that, right (in Star Trek that is)?

I watched odd Thomas I liked the movie and I liked this man as an actor, sad stuff, life is very fragile and can end in a heartbeat understanding that in its entirety makes the trivial things fade away.

Well, that sucks. Definitely a rough and particularly unlucky way to go.

Obviously a Zionist media plot .. Sacrifice a star for big returns on opening weekend.

Just kidding.

Bummer deal. Hopefully he enjoyed his time in the spotlight.

Ummm...not to mention his portrayal of Dean Koontz's..."Odd Thomas"...

Damn...that's too bad...I really enjoyed his acting talent...I would like to have seen him in a remake of..."Powder"...

That does suck on so many levels...

I was just going to mention that. I loved that movie and the book. I have it in on my watch list on Amazon and I was always hoping they'd do another.

I once encountered a bizarre double situation like this. At about 4 AM near downtown Austin, my buddy and I were cruising up a hill and encountered a whole car load of drunks, frantically trying to hold their SUV from rolling down it. There were a half dozen plastered college kids, one at each door and a couple behind the bumper, at maximum exertion and full panic attempting to stop the slowly sliding vehicle. "We've got to help them!" my friend insisted. I parked (uphill of course), and we stood cautiously as they were yelling for us to get behind the truck to help push. I yelled to put on the emergency brake. "What?" "The emergency brake!" The girl pushing the driver's door had no idea, so I ran over and pointed at the lever. She pulled it, and of course the car stopped. The idiots behind didn't realize, and were still screaming and pushing. As we turned to walk up the hill, a security guard came out of the apartments we were next to and started to approach us. My buddy said "let's get out of here," but I said to cool it, we don't want to look suspicious. "We're just passing by, I'm not sure what their problem is," I said as we walked past him to the car. As we got in and took off we saw the fat old guard just stand and watch, perplexed as the idiots were still trying to push the SUV. We got barely two blocks away, before encountering another SUV... creeping backwards down the hill... being held back by a different group of screaming drunks. "Go, go, go!" my friend yelled, and I wholeheartedly complied. We sped past them, and to this day I have no idea how that one ended. Now hearing that Chekov died from this, I regret not rolling down the window and yelling "Emergency brake!"

Interesting that he joined the 27 club?

Darwin Award.

So how come it didn't start rolling when he got out, before he had time to walk around behind it?

Was that car a 58 Plymouth Fury, by any chance?

Best scene in Christine.
