National Transportation Safety Board

The National Transportation Safety Board recently divulged they had covertly funded a project with U.S. auto makers for the past five years, where by the auto makers were installing black box voice records in four-wheel drive pickup trucks and SUV's in an effort to determine, in fatal accidents, the circumstances in the last moments before the crash.

They were not surprised to find in 44 of the 50 states the recorded last words of drivers in 61.2 percent of fatal crashes were, "Oh, Shit!!!!!!"

But the states of Oklahoma, Tennessee, North Carolina, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama and Kentucky were different, where 89.3 percent of the final words were, "Hold my beer, I'm gonna try somethin'[:D]

RE: National Transportation Safety Board

Actually for the Southern US the final words would be 'Hey Y'all watch this'. At which point you should know to run for the hills because some is going to be maimed or killed.
