Runaway car almost gets wiped out

Runaway car

We all know the feeling. There's a lot playing on your mind and the simplest of tasks can be forgotten when that important board meeting with the executives is only a minute away.

But, failing to put the handbrake on could well make you wake up and smell the coffee.

The BMW 3-Series crashes through the bush at quite some speed, before the owner looks like he's going to get run over by his own car.

Luckily, he manages to throw himself into the driver's seat and rip up the handbrake before reaching the main road and more worryingly, the huge lorry that just happens to be travelling past.

Phew!
