While rushing to get to a BBQ dinner on the other side of the airport, this van driver crossed an active runway and came closer than you’d like to getting hit by an Envoy Air Embraer 145 taking off with 57 passengers on board. Though it looks like a reckless move on the part of the van driver, he did have clearance from ground controllers to proceed. The Embraer pilot saw the van on the runway and called it out, but there was nothing he could have done at that point in the takeoff roll.
