Epic fail while trying to land. This paraglider has defiantly seen better days! If you french fry when you want to pizza, you're going to have a bad day. Or if you flare when you want lift, you might get hit by a truck!   Bottom Line is this; You fly to where and what you focus your vision on. The guy simply did not have the eyes, or AWARENESS to land on a flat grassy spot, rather than flying right into the road of incoming traffic. Purely Pilot Error. He only has himself to blame. Totally preventable, with proper planning on landing at a designated landing zone. Paraglider Hit by Truck | Unofficial Networks

Totally didn’t see that coming! I feel bad for the cows. They were just grazing in the grass minding their own business. Pure Darwinism on both accounts.
