Estate Driver Is Fast, Furious And Out Of Control – Yet, Somehow, Doesn’t Crash!

Since we’ve already brought you the latest Hobbs & Shaw trailer, you can rest assured that what happened here isn’t a scene from the Fast and Furious spinoff. Instead, it is a very serious incident, one that could have easily ended with a multi-car crash.

Thankfully, the driver of the white station wagon managed to regain control, either due to their efforts or simply because of inertia, or perhaps a little bit of both. Let’s try to work out what happened, shall we?

For starters, good luck figuring out why that wagon (which appears to be a Subaru) was out of control in the first place. There’s nothing in the video description, nor in the Reddit thread where we found the clip to begin with. It’s pretty obvious though that the car was already out of control before it entered the camera’s line of vision.

As the car slides past the cammer, it proceeds to almost perform a full 360-degree spin before facing the correct way again. Midway through the spin, we can see the driver locking the wheels, which we guess is a normal reaction. But to their credit, we also see a correct steering input just as the car begins to face the wrong way – look at the wheels carefully and you’ll see how they begin to turn beyond a certain point.

Was this a masterfully executed save? Probably not, because a. the speed was way too high for a non-pro to do this on purpose, and b. the wagon comes dangerously close first to the barrier and then to the dashcam vehicle, whose driver actually needed to steer clear in order to avoid contact. In any case, things might have been much worse, so let’s be thankful for that.
