There are car accidents, and then there are totally avoidable, seriously unfortunate car accidents. Comedian and actor Sunil Grover shared an example of an accident that falls into the latter category on Instagram this Sunday. The Bharat actor shared a clip which shows a driver ramming his brand new Kia Carnival minivan into a showroom wall minutes after delivery.
The video is not a new one. It went viral on social media in June this year after it was uploaded on YouTube.
In the original clip, a dealership employee can be seen explaining something to the driver. The car, with a couple of people sitting inside, then starts moving. However, the driver immediately appears to lose control of the vehicle, ramming it straight into a wall.
In fact, the car hits the wall a couple of times more as the driver tries to reverse, leading some to speculate that he did not know how to control automatic cars.
"New car, directly from showroom to service station," wrote Sunil Grover while sharing the video.
Since being posted on Instagram one day ago, the video has been viewed over 1 million times.
"He was testing the airbags," wrote one person in the comments section.
"Wall is made of Ambuja cement," another quipped.
This is not the only car accident video that is currently going viral online. Over the weekend, a video of a Porsche careening over a wall and landing on another car was widely circulated on social media.Click for more trending news
