Video: Spectators lucky to be alive as racecar crashes right in front of them

The spectators at this local Serbian rally were incredibly lucky not to have been killed in this horrific crash.

Surprisingly, no one was injured in the following incident, which occurred in Kragujevac, Serbia earlier this week, and both the driver and co-driver walked away with only a few scrapes and bruises – they have their roll cage to thank for that.

It’s hard to tell exactly how many times the car flips over before coming to a rest, but the best guesses on YouTube are that the hatchback barrel rolls eight times before crashing into and landing on top of a clapped out competitor.

Here’s another look at the crash from a different angle. Make sure the video skips to the 4:40 mark; otherwise you’ll just be watching cars turning a corner for four minutes… We learnt that one out the hard way.
