This is waaay Off Topic from Japanese Comedy and stuff, but I wonder what happened in Japan where a driver hit various cars just to get passed that truck? It got a lot of coverage by TBS, Fuji TV, etc.

Anyway, this is the video I'm talking about.

Crazy stuff like that happens in every country sadly since there are impatient people everywhere, road rage and all that...

EDITed to remove rambling about crazy driving after clarification of the topic at hand.
But like I said earlier, the accident was covered by various channels in Tokyo, like if someone made a massacre or something, that's why I'm curious.

I think the police arrested the guy later, because I saw a man covered by his jacket scholded by the police.

Oh I get you now. I typed down the Hiragana/Katakana on the news report heading and looked up a couple of the Kanji then chucked it into Google (which estimated the rest), here's the text of the news report:
02/05 11:45
(TBSテレビ[ひるおび!])
車が暴走・10台に衝突・運転男性「脱法ハーブ吸った」
福岡市・天神で車が暴走、計10台の車にぶつかりガードレールに衝突して止まった。
この事故で15人げ軽傷を負った。
車に乗っていた男性2人は「脱法ハーブを吸った」と話していた。


I think it's roughly:
February 5th 11:45 (from TBS TV "Hiruobi!")
Runaway car collides with 10 vehicles. Male driver quotes "I had smoked some law-evading herbs".
A runaway car in Fukuoka Tenjin collided with 10 vehicles before coming to a stop when it hit a guardrail. 15 people suffered minor injuries in the incident.
The two men in the car stated "I smoked a law-evading herb".


I looked up the "law-evading drug" thing on the Japanese<->English Ejje Dictionary and it says: A law-evading hallucinatory herb (e.g. synthetic marijuana, "fake pot"). I'm guessing it's the use of drugs that stands out in the news. I don't know anything about what these "law-evading herbs" are but at a total guess I imagine the media might debate on whether they should be considered outside the law etc.
I get it, it was all because of the fakr pot they smoked, right? At least the mistery has been solved! Lol

After seeing Russian Road Rage on YouTube nothing can suprise me, to be honest :)
Anyway, I didn't expect that from Japan, actually.

I've seen a lot of those videos, it bothers me that in Russia they drive like they were the street kings or something. You should see this video, it's shocking even if it's 2 years old. Sorry for putting this over here.
