Spotted on the web, the following video shows one of the worst accidents we have ever came across in the recent years. Shot from a dashcam of a Nissan 200SX coupe, a Renault Megane RS was seen overtaking the Nissan 'in excess of 190km/h' when it lost control of it.

 

Considering how bad the impact was, we are extremely glad and surprised to see the driver get out of his car on his two own feet. According to the owner of the video, the driver only suffered from minor bruises and cuts and was fine otherwise.

First it was Megane RS who was king of the 'ring...dan Leon Cupra 280...dan Civic type R.

The chase for such silly titles will get someone killed one day. Now this video proved that these car makers are just trying too hard.

They fight in the 'ring, they fight in terms of pricing, plus they are not cheap to begin with and in the end how many boy racers buy the car? The whole thing is so pointless.

The Megane RS driver made the mistake of steering onto the grass, causing him to loose traction. This is simple common sense.

Driving into the grass could be caused by induced trail braking due to panic or over-correction due to poor judgement. We can't tell cause it happen behind the cam.

 

Common Sense yes, but sometimes shit just happens even if you know it..

You must be kidding. He obviously went too fast and couldn't steer and flew straight INTO the grass.

    Construction on Jurong Region Line to start next year

    Construction works for five stations on the new Jurong Region Line (JRL) are expected to start next year and slated for completion in 2026. The five stations are Choa Chu Kang, Choa Chu Kang West, Tengah, Hong Kah and Corporation, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) said yesterday. The authority has awarded two contracts worth $739.5 million to construct the five MRT stations. The stations will form part of JRL, Singapore's seventh MRT line, which is set to open in three stages from 2026. Comprising 24 stations, the line was announced last year to improve connectivity in the Jurong area, with the aim of boosting the area's transformation into a second Central Business District.
