Lada Does Pirouette on Wet Road - Doesn’t Crash! [Video]
This Russian driver gets ‘nudged’ by a truck from the other lane, and expertly completes a full 360-turn. Miraculously, the car isn’t hit by any oncoming cars, and stays in the correct lane, throughout the spin. Of course, this time it was the falut of the truck driver, but if the driver would have been at the wheel of something with more modern underpinnings, he or she could have regained control much quicker.
There is, however, the element of luck, which renders airbags, crumple zones and strengthening beams useless, regardless of how new or safe your ride is.
