    Professional Drift and Stunt driver Rhys Millen crashed on his 15th attempt to flip a truck. I've met Rhys and he's a real stand-up guy and is an incredible driver. He's a professional drift driver, rally driver and he does tons of stunt driving for Hollywood. It's great to see guys pushing the envelope, but it's never good to see guys getting injured.

    Heel up Rhys!

    He was landing into hundreds of cardboard boxes, he did a couple full rotations and landed successfully right side up in the boxes. But on his 15th attempt something went wrong and he only did half a rotation and completely overshot the landing pad and landed on the roof of the truck on asphalt.

    Damn! They showed that on ESPN during the way over hyped football field jump. It was super crazy! The ramp is pretty cool, the front wheels hit and the ramp levels out a bit to give it the back flip motion.

    Sick!

    Hope dude heals up, and pulls that off for real for real
