Why would somebody drive their car directly into another vehicle despite excellent visibility and a relatively low speed? Besides, it’s not like the driver of this Audi Q7 was asleep at the wheel or anything.
In fact, it almost looks as if seeing the car he was about to hit came as a total shock to him. Sure, the first-generation Q7 had massive A-pillars, but they still wouldn’t be big enough to mask a big blue VW Amarok ute.
And yet, the man driving the Audi had a really bewildered expression on his face, right before he realized he was about to crash. He must have been looking elsewhere, or was probably preoccupied with something other than paying attention to where he was going.
Either way, his car got punished severely for his lack of awareness. In fact, the driver of the Amarok even posted a few images on his personal Photobucket feed, which show just how useful a bullbar can be in situations such as these.
The accident took place in Gungahlin, Australia, a place where bullbars are also called ‘Roo Bars’, since drivers fit them to their vehicles in case they hit any kangaroos – considered a primary road safety hazard Down Under. Could some Audi drivers be gunning for similar considerations too?
In the end, there were no casualties, which is something everybody involved should be thankful for. Although, if we were to feel bad for somebody (or something), it would be that Q7, since it took quite a blow from a nondeformable object.
Note: Mind the language used by the VW driver following the crash
