- In the opening chase, some shots show the white pickup with a damaged headlight while in others it's still intact. After the titles it's seen with the hood up, and the collision with the school bus seems to have fixed the headlights!
- The school bus only has minor bodywork damage - why doesn't the driver just move it away from the van?
- When the red/cream pickup crashes, it hits the rocks on the front right corner, but after a cut-away to the white truck it is facing a completely different direction.
