We’re really far apart from the tabloid world but sometimes their usual headlines really spring to mind – especially after we watched in amazement over and over the shocking footage below.
That’s because we have here the video proof that some guys are luckier than others – especially this Subaru rally driver wannabe’ who took a jump off a cliff on Angeles Crest highway and is still here to tell the story. By the way, the accident actually took place around a year ago but it has only come to our attention once the man involved actually decided to share his accident to the world – maybe in an attempt to show us the values of going to a driver school when thinking about going fast. By the way – we urge you to don’t try this on the road – if you feel like going fast there are countless of race tracks all around the world and many of them give access to the public to try their driving abilities in a safe environment.
That’s because mixing average driving skills with performance machines such as a Subaru and canyon roads such as Angeles Crest Highway are almost always a recipe for disaster – the latter roads always include seemingly usual sections that will actually tax any careless speeder. Doing an average speed of 90 mph/145 km/h at the end of the tunnel with no visibility resulted in him totaling the Forester XT: “At the [tunnel] exit, I could barely see because it was so bright, a person standing and holding something. Wondering what they were doing, I stared, and stared. Then I figured it out. They were telling me to slow down and watch the curve ahead, but it was too late,” he recounts the chilling experience.
