Was he running from the cops? They seemed to get there pretty quick.
They sure got their quick but then decided meh those people got him, I gotta make sure I park the car in a good spot before getting out…
Yep. Ended being tested positive for cocaine and almost coma like alcohol.
Looks like it
Yes, he was actually running from the cops. Didn't stop to the police sign, tried to get away so the police went into pursuit. Later the driver was found drunk and high.
Was the driver okay?
As far as i know, he was unharmed or had minor injuries...
This would make a great MedLife commercial 👍
And the amount of time they spent parking the car gave a serious “don’t care you got what you deserved” attitude…
More likely calling an ambulance and possibly the fire department to extract him from the car.
Not a huge amount that they will be able to do at that point. He is stopped, possibly trapped in the car. Unless he is in imminent danger (car on fire, building about to collapse on top of him), it is better to leave him where he is until the paramedics arrive.
Even if he was pierced^1 by one of the poles, it would be better to leave it as it is because it would limit the amount of bleeding.
1. Just thinking about that reminded me of a story of a guy who had a "plug" of flesh removed from his leg when a pole went through his thigh.
Yeah, but it’s not the driver so much as all the people gathering around trying to open the doors and creating a more chaotic scene.
In the US we secure the crash area because people get in the way and do stupid things, and stopped traffic causes more accidents.
Pole patrol, pole patrol we’ll be there on the double..
It was Henry Ruggs test driving a Beamer.
Yeah, this was is bucharest, he failed to stop at a police hail, they chased him and he lost control of the car. He was drunk and on drugs
That is a quality built light pole there!
But GTA5 taught me I can roll up and tap a light pole and it'll snap like it was held in by dental floss!?
A lot of them do actually. Most of em have breakaway bolts if they're hit.
NoPixel's vibranium, titanium, Wakanda technology light poles would like to have a word with your GTAV car.
That was a lie. All light poles, traffic signals, and trees are standing strong on the ground. I mean they are very unmovable
They made them solid in GTA4 and apparently the realism was too much for some people
That's not necessarily a measure of quality. Lots of light poles are designed to give way. You can hit them at high speeds without ending up with two half cars so they're safer.
Making one this strong is cheaper and easier than having one that is designed to slow a car down, but not be lethal.
I'm sure the people and businesses behind it feel differently.
If say the safe one is better for both, more expensive means more profit for the company and safer for people.
It's governments that pay for them after all ;).
I think he meant safer for the people/businesses actually standing behind the pole, and not the company/government that paid for it to be there.
Ath, yes that makes more sense
Family buisness was involved in this for quite a few years. This really isn’t a light pole, unless you mean the poles that suspend all of the traffic signals all over this intersection. It’s definitely not cheaper to make stronger ones. We would have a crew vertically auger 10-12 ft down a 4 ft diameter hole, use rebar, pour concrete...it’s quite an undertaking from this pedestal the pole, like the one hit, is mounted etc etc. I guess my point is, you can’t really go cheap and have “ breakaway” parts at these intersections. They need to be able to handle hurricane force winds and cars hitting them at blistering speeds. If we installed breakaway poles, cars would be taking down ALL the stuff hanging from them, all 4 corners of the intersection, f’ing up traffic, every other week.
Build it right, don’t worry about it falling and if some dumbass is running from the police and can’t control his vehicle.....well, that’s on him/her.
That makes much more sense to me. Better to let the reckless driver be damaged than the unshielded pedestrians or shops with people inside. Without that pole there and the smaller ones along the sidewalk, innocent people could have definitely been killed. Or if the pole fell over after being hit, people's lives would have been just as much at risk.
Right? Like who built that shit? That's a future fortune 500 company right there with all the bullshit riots going on at the moment.
That's what she said!
A+ to that pole construction
One of the few things that got built with a sense of responsibility around here..... it was by mistake i'm sure of it. Source: i'm Romanian.
I mean, you have to give me credit, not only did it stay standing, the power stayed on
Rich ass neighborhoods and their Adamantium light poles!
Let’s hope he was in the car alone
correction to the article - it says 5 series but that’s actually a BMW 7 series
Same shit different toilet innit
Even if it wasn't, same twit in the driver seat.
I have never heard that one but I'm definitely gonna do my part propagating that phrase here in America!
A couple of series got knocked off by that pole.
Oh that good
I’m shocked he survived!
Or even better, its right hand drive haha
Fucking thank you! I was wondering why no one pointed that out. It is way too perfect.
Some chunk got yeeted way up. It took a while for it to thud back down.
5 second hang time. 9/10 yeet. Impressive
So its hang time is more correctly measured in years, not seconds.
A friend of mine was driving a semi. A motorcycle came around the corner too fast and drifted into the front of the semi at a speed that no one survives. My friend got out of the truck and without looking at the scene, walked about 100 feet ahead and then turned around and slowly walked back. He said he knew it would be bad and didn’t think he could handle the shock of looking right away. He is still shaken by what he saw.
The manufacturer of that light pole now uses this video in its' advertisements
That was his last post
What was NSFW?
he died maybe
Average BMW driver
I wonder if he put the signal on when he started to go left
Never pull over with the first siren-howl. Mash it down and make the bastard chase you at speeds up to 120 all the way to the next exit. He will follow. But he won't know what to make of your blinker-signal that says you're about to turn right.
You have high hopes for BMW drivers
He did but he indicated right
That must be a GTAV light post
Solid European pole construction right there
Kudos to the engineers behind that traffic light post. Stonewalled the fuck outta that car.
That’s a wrap!
Jerry was a race car driver
Twenty-two years old
One too many cold beers one night
Wrapped himself around a telephone pole
Pole dancing took to a whole new level
Like a glove!
My dad always told me if a deer jumps in the middle of the road while I’m driving, don’t drastically swerve out of the way to try to avoid it.
The reason being: if you hit that deer, you’ll drive through it. If you hit some of these poles, that pole ain’t moving and has more of a chance of killing you die to the sudden stop.
This video is a great realization of that.
That’s a bad ass light pole. Didn’t even break the bulbs.
For a second i thought that i was going to see a big disaster but that pole just fold the car in half.
“Like a glove”
Thank god the police arrived so quickly to do fucking nothing
At least he left some room to pass by
Whoever was passenger is dead. That's the same way my classmate died, only that he folded himself around a tree
Title is misleading. This guy is definitely running from the cops.
It's raining men!
All over my windscreen!
Ohhhh....nope....just pieces of men.....ohhh....that's not good.
Not 100% but I think so yeah
Hopefully they can’t ever drive again. Dumb mfs
Strong traffic light ![gif](emote|free_emotes_pack|thumbs_up)
Waiting for the sov-cit argument. "I wasn't driving occifer, I was was traveling sideways and this pole inhibited my freedoms"
Was he getting away from the cop? Response time was amazingly quick.
That traffic light pole was strong as fuck
Is that pole made of Adamantium?
Good thing it was a Sunday during church.
Light post solid af
The anchor boots on that pole did a fantastic job.
MedLife - You want some insurance money good sir
Prefect ad doesn't exis...
According to this calculator, that random chunk that landed 5sec after the crash went up about 32m (104ft).
That comically timed debris got me lol
At least they pulled to the side of the road before stopping. Very considerate of other drivers
That light pole took it like a champ.
Now that is how you parallel park.
Whoever sat behind on the right got fcked
The car was destroyed but the traffic light stands still like vibranium.
Hell of a strong pole
Doesn’t seem smart to run up on someone who is being chased by police, especially if they could be dazed and armed
According to Wikipedia, there are an estimated 2.6 firearms per 100 ppl in Romania, compared to a country like the US which has 120.5 per 100 ppl.
Also, gun deaths are 0.14 per 100,000 compared to US 12.21,
That probably didn’t cross their mind because it doesn’t have to.
A gun would be the only real danger here since the bloke must’ve been way too fucked up to start stabbing everyone.
Laughed my ass off hahahaha
You'd think the Germans would have learned to leave Poleland alone.
Heads up you guys, he was alone, but the driver side is on the right….
It's not in this place
Chad light pole Vs Virgin BMW
Total piece of shit. Hopefully “was” perhaps.
I honestly hope that driver is dead.
It could have killed an innocent person EASY, and these cunts never learn.
Viagra building traffic lights now?
At the end they're like "Oh fuck dinner's ready I gotta go"
Had to laugh when the light turned green while the car was wrapped around the pole
He didn't Pow Over enough! Rookie
Seems like a commercial for medlife seeing that banner on the top left building.
Why do drivers love to hug a light pole
you can’t park there sir!
Good thing that pole was there. They could have killed someone
Now that’s a fuckin pole
Yeah you thought that lightstop was gonna break huh? Nope, videogames have LIED to you
He needed a new car anyways, that one clearly couldn’t go straight.
Ah it appears they likely digitally removed andrew garfield from this one too
That light pole was looking a little lonely. Needed a hug
I guess that pole got the big screws?
Used to fighting for a space. Can’t help himself.
Amazing the driver survived. Ouch!
dude, it's green!
Me,an American thinking oh thank God! he wrapped it on the passenger side... oh yea
Hey mate, you can’t park here!
Oh man, the fact that the man goes to the passenger side makes me think there was someone in there…
I got bad news for you buddy, that's not America, and that's not the passenger side.
Yeah we don’t have Peugeot, and those street signs are unfamiliar… still driving in the right? France?
I was thinking Italy maybe, but yeah possible.
Italy, France and America all drive on the same side of the road though?
Cars middle post and light poles are like a match made in heaven every time.
That's some shitty driting there buddy.
Man i Play to much GTA i thought that the lamppost
Would just break🤣🤣🧐🤣🤣🤣
Holy shit that’s a strong light pole!
NSFW - naked car?
“How to buy a light pole”
Those damn Raiders…
Wow. That traffic light is some serious GTA shit
And to no surprise… it’s a BMW
And of course they didn't use their turn signal either
At least he stopped at the red light
Don’t worry he’s fine he’s respawning at the last save point
That light pole was like nope, not today sir!! Lol
Looks similar to an accident that happened in my neighborhood. Except the car hit the tree with it's roof and the car taco'ed 180 around the tree. No one in the car survived
When the traffic light turned green it made me giggle. It was like, nothing to see here folks lol
This is in Romania. Here BMW is known as pan. It is driven by țigani. I wanna say he is a bad guy. This is why cops was chasing him.
The police be like: Nah, i'm out of here. They will blame me because he crashed.
Should have told them they can't park there
What a beast of a light pole. They don’t make them like that anymore that’s for damn sure!
This reminded me of Burnout Revenge Takedown.
Nice ad buy. Definitely a sign for a guy who either has/needs insurance.
Darn!!! He's going to need a good chiropractor.
They guy on a red jersey was looking for body parts
They dead as hell. That's a right side drive 7 series and it smacked the pole dead nuts on the front door.
Warp speed crash
Stop light poles in the US generally crumple in a stiff wind for exactly this reason. To prevent cars from wrapping themselves around the pole and killing those inside. Interesting they are so solid in this location
So this is what it looks like to literally wrap yourself around a telephone pole.
“He’s already pulled over…. He can’t pull over any further!”
But he did slow down very quickly when he realized he was out of control
How fast are we thinking here?
A lower quality car with less safety features would of become his casket that’s a pretty bad crash thank god he didn’t have a passenger I doubt they could of survived but if they did it would be in such a condition that they wish they hadn’t
Wrapped his bimmer 'round a pole. Doo-dah. Doo-dah.
Wrapped his bimmer 'round a pole. Oh, Doo-dah-day!
Should it read sliding in city
One peice of that car was airborne for 5 seconds. Damn
check if hes ok, then knock the shite out of him... luckily he didnt kill anyone...
Perfect parallel parking.
GTA is a Lie! That traffic light stands its ground like nothing happend!
If your vehicle loses control, TAKE FOOT OFF GASPEDAL, or you end up spinning out like this idiot. On manual transmissions, step on the clutch while countersteering.
Oh; so the traffic lights don't break like they do in GTA
Liiiiiiiiike a glove!!
If there was a person in the passenger side,,,, no there wasn't.
București România 2021 Color.
Is this the final Transporter movie?
First thing that comes to mind is Ace Ventura’s “Like a glove”.
