So I was taking a casual stroll through the outback when suddenly a car crashes into a rock a few yards behind me and explodes. It's occupant then ran down the hill screaming hysterically?

Anybody else have this happen to them?


Edit: wasn't a random police/pileup scenario. This was on a dirt path with no cars for miles. In the chiliad wilderness just north of Fort Zancudo.

Nope. I'm interested though. Got a map location and maybe time of day?

BOOM! I Was like wtf instantly switched off my phone looked there was like 5-6 cars all blowing up together in front of me, whole screen in a blaze of fire, loud as f*ck, people screaming on fire, i just thought to myself what the f*ck just happened, drove off and carried on with my day, weirdest experience ive had in the game so fa.

I remember I was on the highway right next to Fort Zancudo the other day and I decided to steal a truck carrying a boat. Once I stole it, I heard a huge explosion behind me. I turned around and saw 1 police car, a regular sedan and a bus on fire. No survivors.

YES! I had this happen to me! I drove North East after coming across the No Country For Old Men reference and got to the top of the mountain.

It was twilight and I was looking out across the canyon whilst deciding where to go when suddenly a loud, piercing scream sounded and a car hit the rocks next to Michael. The explosion killed him and the whole experience made me jump.
I have no idea if the game glitched or if it's an obscure reference (maybe to Lemmings) but I'm glad I'm not the only victim!

I've noticed this before, I think it's those scripted police chases, I think sometimes the cars spawn in odd places, which cause them to explode. I could be wrong, but I have heard sirens followed by an explosion.

I was driving on the Señora Freeway near Grapeseed, just casually driving. Out of nowhere, I heard a huge explosion. 3 cars behind me were gone.

I was actually driving down the road about 5 minutes ago and saw a car speed past me and smash over the lane-guard and flip over and explode.

 

Beats the generic "lynching" in Red Dead, that's for sure. Hella entertaining.

This might be the same event. I know it wasn't a random police/pileupcarnage scenario. I actually survived as I was just out of blast radius but it did wake me up(to put it lightly). I thought it was something in relation to the bigfoot mission as I'd just reached 100% and went in search not knowing that I had yet to wait for the mission to trigger and show up on radar.

a couple of days back I was in blaine county and some guy just hit my car out of nowhere so I park on the other side of the road, start running towards his car, stand in front of the car so he woudn't just drive away and start to beat the crap out of his car, then I go back in the car but I looked to the right and I see the guy coming towards my car (probably to beat me up) and suddenly a car passed by in full speed running him over so quick that I didn't even see his body, it was like he was there, the car runs him over and bam he dissapeared... I was laughing so hard for about 3-4 seconds when suddenly the guy just falls full speed on the street right in front of my car... jeez I was laughing my ass off when that happened (and it was not the first time that I saw a guy getting runned over by some random car)

If anybody wants to see if they can trigger this then head to the road just above the one with the parachute jumps in the chiliad wilderness.

Bumping an old post is frowned upon, but I'm still intrigued as to whether anybody else has encountered this same thing?

Under one of the bridges down town where the hobo camp is, theres a random parked car which spawns on top of a large pile of rubbish. Once, I had the cops chasing me and when my car was simply too knackered to carry on so I got out and ran. Passing the random car spawn on foot, the normal car magically appeared as normal and as I passed it I heard a large BOOM! When I looked back, 3 police cars had spawned on top of it and were vibrating like crazy while on fire. Well crazy but funny.

You sure this wasn't the Thelma and Louise easter egg?

It's not that Easter egg. No cops around/other vehicles that could have spawned to make it explode. He drove into the rock behind me and then he ran down the hill laughing/screaming hysterically. May have been a member of the altruist cult?


I was playing as Franklin, not sure what time it was exactly but it was around midnight/very early morning. It was still dark and I was walking(not running)

It's the second road on the map that's just above Cassidy creek/ratyon canyon.


Maybe some of you could try and reproduce this event?


Edit : this is the hill that he ran down. http://rsg.ms/1aFdKWz

I had something kind of similar to this happen in GTA:O with me and my friend. We were next to a dirt road and an SUV barrel rolled off the street doing like 60 and rolled right off the road and crushed my friend while he wasn't looking, it was pretty hilarious.
