Don't drive under a semi unless you are extremely lucky or your name is Mark 'Skid' McCormick

South Dakota

In South Dakota over the weekend, two men drove their pickup truck underneath a stalled semi that got hung up while attempting a U-turn. Both men were admitted and then released from the hospital. Police say it’s amazing they weren’t decapitated.

So this is what happened: a semi takes a wrong turn, attempts a U-turn, gets stuck and stalls straddling the road, and two guys in a pickup truck in the early morning hours come down the road and drive right under the bed of the semi.

Huh. Not very impressive, gentlemen. Obviously they should take notes from the Coyote and what it can do, especially at the :33 mark:

Which brings me to Mark ‘Skid’ McCormick, played with dashing arrogance and charm by the one, the only Daniel Hugh-Kelly.

Those guys, always able to find a moment of levity

Probably best known for his role in the 80’s ABC series, DHK has kept himself busy in movies but most notably in various television miniseries and daytime soaps. Being a very private man, he has rarely given interviews during his career, living a quiet life in upstate New York with his wife and son. But if Mr. Hugh-Kelly is reading this, I would love to talk about your time during those Hardcastle and McCormick days—especially the episode with the leprechaun (In The Eye of the Beholder, airdate: May 17, 1986)
