Orange County man 'selfie sticks' himself into a car crash

While "selfie sticking and driving" last week, Orange County resident and chiropractor Alex Lopatnyuk documented the experience of slamming a Jeep into a truck directly in front of him. 

The incident, which proves once again that selfie sticks should be banned from the Earth, occurred while Lopatnyuk was heading out to his first gator hunt.

However, as you can see in the video below, the only thing he caught was a canoe through the windshield.

This might be the most satisfying thing you watch all day.
