I think they had a GOOD day. A train wasn't coming at the same time!

I wonder if you climbed on the front and hung onto the windshield wipers and bounced up and down, you could get it freed like in the movie "RV?"

Ya know the reason for the incident is he choked on a potato chip until he passed out . I hope he was alright. Any word on his condition?

This could happen to anyone. I often snack while driving, and what would happen is something got stuck halfway down? I hope I would be hitting the brakes real hard before I ended up like this poor guy, but who knows?

You can pull the parking brake...its not going to lock your rear brakes up as the spring is not as strong as 100 psi.
