Defensive driving tactics and general common sense and prudence driving can go a long way towards avoiding motor vehicle accidents and injuries. But, sometimes there’s really no way you can prepare yourself for what might happen.
A recent spectacular car crash was caught on surveillance video tape and made the rounds of social media. As horrified bystanders looked on, a car crashed through a gas station fence near Leslie and York Mills Road. The video records as the car becomes airborne before crashing right through the garage’s plate glass window. It was only stopped when it crashed into a steel beam inside the shop.
The driver, a male, was rushed to hospital with serious injuries and police are speculating that he simply confused the gas and brake pedals.
Anything Can and Does Happen
In this case, the driver himself was the only one injured – luckily. The flying car actually missed the bystanders and all the other cars parked in the lot. In many instances, however, people aren’t so lucky when cars – or rather their drivers – go out of control. Pedestrians and cyclists are at risk along with other drivers on the road.
- You may be prepared but inexperienced drivers, drunk drivers, distracted drivers – all of these may cross your path at any time.
