Oh No?… Oh Yes…

This guy was enjoying his time driving along the Angeles Crest Highway. He realized that he was going too fast and pressed on the breaks to slow down. Unfortunately, it was too late and he ended up losing control of his car and flipped over the side of the mountain before crashing in the canyon. Luckily, he landed on a rock near the top before reached the bottom and was quickly rescued soon after the incident

    ACH is a great highway to drive on, except not quite like that.

        I always received the most enjoyment from roads when I have stayed on them.

  • This is Merkel driving Germany through the ‘migrant’ crisis.

      She’s still in the uncontrolled slide toward the cliff and hasn’t gotten to the ‘oh no’ bit yet though.

    He wasn’t going too fast; he just panicked.

    • Xavier

      Understeer, overcorrection, wrong vehicle.

        Looks like the ass end slid onto the gravel.

        He should come to Canada in the winter and practice how to control a skid. My first few winters driving involved a lot of skidding around and donuts in the mall parking lot off hours.

        • ntt1

          there is a lot to that idea, I learned to drive on a frozen lake in a 62 volkswagen fitted with stud tires. Most professional drivers have to pass control tests on a skid pan and it would help cut the single vehicle accident rate if all drivers took such training .At the very least to qualify for insurance after a single vehicle loss of control accident.

          • Xavier

            I had friends who were avid amateur racers. They taught me a few tricks and more than once they saved me in cars and on motorcycles. We too practiced with a ’69 Volkswagen Beetle in a large parking lot – those cars were amazing in the snow.

          • ntt1

            My first “professional” driving was in that aging bug, We would tie the summers water ski ropes to the bumper. get a dozen or so well lubricated skaters to latch on then take it up to 20 mph or so and then crank the wheel hard while hitting the handbrake, the resulting whip crack would fire skaters in all directions at high rates of speed. after several weekends of that you acquire a great knowledge of skid geometry.

          • Clink9

            My first car was 71 Super Beetle. Lots of snow on the roads my first night with it and had to teach myself to drive manual transmission too.
            Lots of sliding, understeer and handbrake slides. Weeee!

            It was good practice for me as the last 12 winters were spent bombing around Collingwood driving kids to ski races in minivans.

        • Brett_McS

          Exactly. Probably why the Scandinavian countries (Finland in particular, as my Finnish colleague notes) produce most of the world rally car champions.

          • Clink9

            Those guy’s are amazing drivers. As a Formula 1 freak I’ve always thought they were on the top of the food chain but I’m not sure.

            My favorite driver Kimi Raikkonen took some time off to rally race and came back in great shape.

    You have to know where the turns are coming out of a tunnel when you can’t see them

  • Xavier

    Tunnels are where you drive very carefully, not gun it. Moron.

  • ntt1

    I see lots of morons like this on Highway 99 north.Tuner car with too much horse power ,complete lack of knowledge about the road or the micro climates that produce black ice patches . the result is darwinian selection ,the draw backs are ;government insurance covers the idiot and we all pay and the road is closed trapping all other drivers for several hours while the bodies are extracted.

    • Clink9

      As the cars get safer and smarter, drivers get more stupid. Must be part of a grand plan.

      • ntt1

        Can’t be the RCMPs grand plan. last 6 hour closure stopping me from getting home, I got to chatting with some German tourists on their way to whistler, they were incredulous that the cops had to wait for a death investigation wonk with (i guess) the only certified tape measure. On the autobahns all accidents are cleared 20 minutes tops and all patrol cops carry GPS staffs to map death sites.
        We had several bus loads of people without toilet facilities stranded for hours while the cops waited for this incredibly insightful wonk that had to close out the investigation. not even up to third world standards

        • dukestreet

          They do that kind of stuff a lot. I once had to wait about 18 hours with cops and a family because somebody died in the bathroom and there was a retirement party for the coroner. it left nobody on call for emergencies. Couldn’t even call an ambulance to get the guy out. Eventually, a coroner came from another city.

          • ntt1

            That was the situation here i understand, they located a wonk with a magic tape measure in Langley, it took him 3 hours to get on the road.and 2 hours to travel due to the traffic blockage. sheer incompetence overlaid with arrogant posturing from the cops.

        • Clink9

          I mean GRAND plan. It seems like mankind is two steps forward, one step back. They build the biggest ship, then some ass drives into an iceberg.

          Make cars almost bombproof,( seatbelts, seat belt retractors, airbags on every panel, crush zones, etc. ) everyone drives like an asshole and looking at their phones.

          • ntt1

            I believe it was barnum of barnum & bailey who said” nobody ever went broke overestimating human stupidity”

  • dukestreet

    The advantage of getting your license in a small town, nestled in mountains, is that they teach you how to drive in those situations and it’s part of your driving test. If you can’t get up and down the mountain without going in the ditch or off the edge and don’t stay between the lines of your lane: no license, period. Looks like a great place to get a marvelous view.

  • Me Here

    To start with he was driving on the wrong side of the road, silly boy. <:o)
