Last week we saw a group of deranged drivers block a busy New Jersey freeway to perform “donuts” – courtesy of the Reddit thread r / IdiotsInCars. Now here’s another one, and it’s an unfortunate driving accident, captured and posted on the same Reddit thread.
As you can see in the embedded video below, a Supra was totally out of control, sliding at high speed on an empty street (thankfully). It ended with the coupe hitting the curb which, even without confirmation, would likely have destroyed the car depending on the intensity of the impact.
According to the original poster, it was a brand new original Toyota Supra, which the young driver attempted to show off at the auto meet. It was not clear if the driver was trying to drift on a straight road, or as some reviewers have pointed out, the driver lost control when going at full throttle after a right turn, which drove to a series of unfortunate events.
More importantly, said Supra was allegedly a loaner dealership car, which the kid tried to pass off as his car – no wonder this was posted under said subreddit, but it looks like there’s another story behind it. .
Auto Club YEG, the organizer of the said car meeting, posted a video on his Instagram account in light of the accident that had occurred the night before. A representative of the Canadian Automobile Club of Alberta tried to air his side, explaining that the Supra was not a loan and that it is their car (almost). He provided some further explanation in the 13-minute video, which is embedded at the bottom of this article. And as everyone suspects, the yellow Supra will be a loss in value.
We’ll never know the real score behind this crash, but one thing’s for sure, showing up is inevitable, but it also comes with a huge responsibility, especially if the car you’re using is more than you can handle.
