Skoda Rapid Impaled By Bamboo Poles, Somehow Occupants Survive

The worst part about failing to give incoming traffic the right of way, is that you’re leaving other motorists with very little time to react to your mistake.

It’s a valuable lesson to learn, which most drivers do even without having to go through any near-death experiences. The person behind the wheel of this Skoda Rapid in China, however, was a little less fortunate.

We’re not sure how the driver missed the fact that there wasn’t really any time or space for him to maneuver forward, but once he did, the truck driver didn’t have a choice but to hit the brakes – which in turn sent those poles flying forward, impaling the Rapid.

Thankfully, after the woman passenger emerges from the backseat, we also get to see a man wearing a white shirt being pulled from the car, seemingly unharmed, though undoubtedly shaken up.

In the end, any day where you walk away from a Final Destination-type of end-game scenario, is a good day.

  • Cameron

    That’s literally one of my worst nightmares, thanks a lot Final Destination, I think I would of just killed myself after that because we all know what happens If you avoid…. DESTINY!

      Or you could just say that destiny doesn’t exists and that we’re ultimately at the mercy of ceaseless chemical interactions on the level from the atomic to the galactic bounded by entropy, but whatever.

    • Captain Obvious

      well if you believe destiny.. then the driver’s destiny was to avoid this accident..
