If there was ever a blueprint for how to act like an irresponsible and inexperienced driver, while putting other people’s lives at risk, then it would probably look a little something like this.
The driver of the pictured Honda Civic was clearly showing off for his friends, all of which looked like teenagers. Not only was he speeding on a dangerous road at night, but he also illegally overtook another vehicle despite the double lines, and then failed to realize there was a turn coming.
Once confronted with this reality, the driver simply climbed on the brakes and rode them directly into that embankment by the side of the road. Upon impact, the car shot upwards and then came crashing back down, rolling over onto its roof before settling on all four tires again.
As passengers started to emerge from the wreck, it was clear that they weren’t exactly unscathed, with some of them clutching their sides in pain, while one individual had to be helped up and carried to the side of the road.
Thankfully, the car they had just overtaken (an older FG1 Civic – according to the description of the video), pulled over behind them, its occupants more than willing to lend a hand and check to see if everybody was OK. We imagine that authorities were called soon after and that an ambulance arrived at the scene.
While we wish everyone a speedy recovery, we’re also hopeful that the driver responsible for showing off will be reprimanded in a way that will hopefully lead to a change of mentality.
