Van “smith grinds” guard rail at Diversey and Racine

I was driving home the other day when this dude in a van hopped the
curb, smacked the guardrail then ended up grinding the guard rail! It
was pretty awesome. It only would of been better if he had enough
momentum to hop off the rail and keep on driving. I figure either this
guy watched Birdhouse’s “The End” too many times and decided that smith grinding
his van would be an amazing idea. Or…. he was on his phone or
something and fucked himself up. It made a great sound by the way…
The corner of Diversey and Racine hadn’t seen this much action since
the 70’s. Baby strollers and Starbucks cups were flying everywhere as
condo-owner panic ensued. People were SURE Al Queda had just shown up in a Ford E-150 to do their worst – create horrible noises!

    I’ve heard of this “extreme” vanning. Let me know if you spot a van doing a mctwist.
