Years of rallying, nights of overtime and tons of other forms of hard work. These are just a part of the ingredients that make up the Subaru WRX STI, with the current generation gathering a hefty fanbase in the US. However, all the electronically controlled all-wheel-drives in the world won’t save a car from a faulty element connecting the pedals to the driver's seat.
Since the 2015 WRX STI in the footage below couldn’t save itself from its driver, the car was involved in what seems to be a medium-to-well-done crash on the highway.

Situations like this serve as perfect examples of why the law requires drivers to change lanes one by one, while properly checking their surroundings.

We see the Scooby moving from the first to the third lane of a highway while showing clear signs of speeding. In the process, the guy behind the wheel ignores the blind spots that can be created by an 18-wheeler, and the price he pays for that is dear.

Once the car reaches its targeted lane, the driver notices a line of cars that had stopped. Even at this point, the man could’ve proved he was worthy of the rally-bred contraption around him, but he failed to do so, causing a crash that had the potential to total the car - for one thing, the guy could’ve tried to steer his STI in between the stopped cars and the 18-wheeler.

We know it’s easy to talk about such alternatives from behind a computer screen, but that would’ve been an option with clearly better chances than the one the driver chose. Fortunately, according to another driver, who captured the whole thing on camera and posted the clip on YouTube, all the occupants of the crashed vehicles were “OK.”

In fact, YouTube commenters were as kind as to provide the exact location of the accident: ClearView Expressway, in Queens, NY.
