Dash-Cam Captures Near-Death Boulder Crush Mudslide

landslide-near-death-experience.jpg

This is the dash-cam footage of a car traveling Taiwan's Badouzi Coastal Park when heavy rains trigger a landslide (you can see the top right side of the hill give way at 0:03) that ends with a giant f***ing boulder nearly crushing a car. Amazingly, the mud and water that hit the road right before the boulder pushed the car out of the way. When reached for comment, the person driving said, "Holy shit, holy shit, holy shit", which seems entirely reasonable until you realize they've never spoken English before. Near death experiences: now with the power to teach different languages. Suck it, Rosetta Stone!

Hit the jump for the video and a couple shots of the aftermath.

Thanks to Nils, SixtoFour, jordan, Hanger and Ash, who agree drivers should all take those CAUTION: FALLING ROCKS signs more seriously.

There are Comments.
  • Zzzyxas

    So that's how a holy shit looks, litteraly.

  • Bling Nye

    Coincidentally, the driver was from Colorado, (being born about 40 minutes northwest of Denver), was at that moment rocking out to the Rolling Stones.

    0:27 Boulder: "I'm gonna squish you! Just kidding."

  • Torse

    0:31 for NOPE NOPE NOPE
    And 0:47 for a little more NOPE

  • The kind of accident that makes you not giving two craps to the fact your car got totaled.

    Had the presence of mind to turn on their hazard flashers...respect. Although the boulder in the middle of the road is pretty conspicuous as it is

  • nidsandwolves

    The driver, Ho Lee Phuk, was quite shaken up over the ordeal.

  • Rick_McRockock

    I'm pretty sure Jesus pushed that car out of the way of that falling rock... that or the owner of that dashcam used the force to push him. Only two options.

  • catallergy

    This is China we are talking about. If anything stopped that rock it was Buddha.

    Notice the local time as the mud EXPLODES over the road;
    16:20
    Mountain was trying to help driver get... stoned ^__^

  • Derek

    It makes a lot of sense that he was so close to being stoned at 16:20.

  • ilikefrogs

  • Chad Burton

  • Narcotic

    That's incredible how much the mud and all the loose shit pushed the car about 7 feet. Close, very lucky! Happy 4:20pm
