Teen crashes BMW M3 into rocks

2012-08-21 10:47

WHAT A WASTE OF A CAR: The teen's joyride, shown above, could’ve easily gone a lot worse and should serve as an example of how not to drive a car.

 
The guys at Mischief TV, responsible for showcasing all manner of vehicular madness, have released the intro to their latest movie - a kid crashing a BMW.

In a video uploaded to YouTube, a US teenager is shown driving a BMW M3 along a winding pass in South Mountain Park, Phoenix, Arizona.

POOR DRIVING SKILL

The teenager commits several driving errors, such as incorrect hand positions on the steering wheel and turning the steering wheel while entering a corner in an overall display of reckless driving.

The inevitable happens at the 0:20 mark as the teenager misjudges a corner and ends up crashing into rocks along the road.

According to the driver: "Well it happened at South Mountain park in Phoenix AZ. One of my buddies and I were out just having fun and driving until I came up on a deceptive corner, misjudged it and it happened.

"No injuries. The car was a total loss. Misjudgement of the road caused the accident."

YouTube viewers had some choice comments about the reckless crash:

Mr2crazybyong said: "I don’t think it was understeering, the car came in too fast on an uphill corner then suddenly went down, so the car flew off the road on that corner so any steering input was useless.. hope he learns his lesson.. what a waste of a beautiful machine."

Tarnationsauce2: "Going out on a limb here - but if I was in an accident my guess is I would at least ask my passenger if he was OK instead of looking at my handy work. A vehicle operator is responsible for the safety of the passengers. The irresponsibility demonstrated here is astounding."

JURPO90 said: "I did that when I was 12, but I didn't have M3, I had a Peugeot 205 that had more rust than metal. Man it was fun to crash that car, and it still worked after it."
 
XlopenX said: "Aww daddy's/mommy's car got totaled, oh well, time to get another one. F**king void his license for like 5 years...these kids don't deserve to drive.”
