The lights are on
We've all heard people say that video games help hone your hand-eye coordination and reflexes, but I doubt many of us have seen a possible demonstration this exhilarating. A Canadian man was driving his car in Ontario when a truck carrying 30 tons of sand flew across the median, directly in his lane.
Driver Matthew Kirzsan told an ABC affiliate that he was able to quickly steer his vehicle out of harm's way thanks to his video-gaming experience. Kirzsan captured the near miss on his dash-mounted video camera, and you can see the footage below.

Don't mess with gamers, we have the reflexes of a cat! *Kung Fu pose*
wow that was crazy to watch...mad props on the driving skill.
Why didn't he just attribute his death-defying driving to Heavy Rain, not "his video-gaming experience" in general.
video games are cool, yeah video games.
I attribute Gran Turismo to my autocrossing abilities.
Video Games! saving lives every day!
An impressive little clip, but funny that it's the little mention of video games that got it any amount of notice *shrug*
video games ftw
I usually only look foward.. that truck was suddenly on the left ... as much as the kids here are making fun of it, its a quick time event not many would've walked away from!
