A border patrol officer who crashed his van into a civilian car blamed the accident on the other driver–but little did he know, the civilian had a secret camera installed in his vehicle.

The other driver was “Ted,” of Lawrence, New York, a technology blogger for dealspin.com. He had recently installed a Timetec Roadhawk Dashboard Camera in his vehicle, capturing the windshield’s view of the road.
