One should always be aware of your surroundings, especially when merging lanes. Watch as the driver of a Honda Civic fails to notice a massive truck, merges and ends up being pushed along a highway. Thankfully, no one seemed to be injured in this epic fail.

LOS ANGELES, California - A driver who plunged 91m off of a Southern California ocean cliff was rescued after firefighters waded into the surf to free him from the car.

KNBC-TV reports that the 19-year-old man was taken to hospital in critical condition and told paramedics that he intentionally drove of the cliff. The website also reported that police believed the young man had tried to commit suicide.


Authorities were called to the scene at about 2am on December 27 2013. They found the car being slammed by waves.

Firefighters, lifeguards and local police helped in the rescue. The driver was finally pulled free and flown to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center.

The crash site is on the Palos Verdes Peninsula, about 32km south of downtown Los Angeles.
