You can't steer if you're in the air.

I would have removed that memory card from the gopro and stepped on it within seconds of the crash so that the world would never get to see my idiocy.

I guarantee if the driver posted the video, he has absolutely no remorse for what happened, though if I was his dad and found it, I would have certainly posted it to e-shame him.

I bet the crash would have happened earlier if he had to shift on his own.......

I found myself questioning HOW he managed to fuck up navigating that curve as well.

Seems like a fairly remote area. I wonder if he had a cell signal or he had a long walk to a major road for help.

This could have been far worse.

First, call it dumb luck that he went off the road where he did. If you look at the steering wheel angle, he is luck he lost grip and went straight off the road and had some large boulders slow him down rather than a 1000lb saguaro cactus fall on top of the car.

Second if he had gone off mid turn, the car would have more likely gone sideways, probably ending in a roll over situation. Maybe lose an arm or serious head injury.

Lastly, the circled area highlighting the WALL of boulders, would have been in the path if he didn't go straight off. The sudden deceleration would have been ugly.

How does his door open so wide? Maybe it's an optical illusion but it looks like it opens a full 90 degrees vs. about 75 degrees for my E46 M3.

One lucky kid to be alive. How the hell didn't he notice the hill in front of him and not know the road was going left? No terrain awareness at all. It's harder to do in the desert, but you can still usually tell where the road is going by looking ahead a bit, even over blind rises. It's easier to do where trees grow, that's for sure. Though if there had been trees he'd have been dead meat.

agreed, most ppl didn't see that he did turn significantly, but that he had no traction on front tires....

Good write up...can you do a drawing dramatization of him plowing in to said 1000lb cactus?
