- An ambitious driver overestimated his driving skills and it ended in tears
- He crashed his car into one of the columns after trying to make his second lap around the pumps
- Social media users shared their reactions to the video and offered their opinions
Leon Winkle posted a video on Facebook of a driver who wanted to show off but his antics ended in tears as he crashed his car.
He performed a series of loops around the pumps before miscalculating and crashing into what appears to either be a column.
The squealing of the tires abruptly ends as he crashes with the bakkie's canopy almost launching off the back of the car.
Here are some reactions to the shocking incident:
"Yirrrr the way the canopy was shocked at this man’s actions ."
Sir-Thabang Gregory Lebopa:
" What a country we live in. The alala voice nice way to close the video."
Sheldon Du Plessis:
"You spin me right round baby right round."
"Should have stopped after completing the first circle..it was enough."
Allen Sithembiso Ndlela:
"Barely 2days in 2021 and already we have an entry for the 'Dumbest Person of 2021 Awards'."
Earlier, Briefly.co.za reported that a hair-raising video clip, as well as a few pictures, have been shared online by South African road safety group Arrive Alive on their official Twitter account of an incident that occurred at a KZN petrol station recently.
In the clip, a man sits at the back of the bakkie filling the large tyre with air. Before long the tyre bursts causing it to fly into the air before coming crashing down onto the bakkie and badly destroying it.
While the bakkie looks completely destroyed by the large tractor tyre, there were no reported fatalities or injuries, making this freak accident a lucky one since anyone hit by the tire would have been badly hurt.
In other news, a Twitter user, Petty Chief (@Stan_Subru), posted a video online of one of the weirdest car accidents that we have ever seen. The cameras at a petrol station record a random wheel rolling into the station from the road.
It does a loop around the only car at the pumps before rolling straight into the rear bumper doing some serious damage.
The event has got Mzansi scratching our heads in confusion, so many questions but so few answers.
