Man films himself crashing Honda CRX

Updated: 



This is the shocking moment a man filmed himself crashing a rare Honda CRX after he decided to hang out of the window while driving.

The car had broken down and so the owner decided to "skateboard" it down the hill while hanging out of the driver's door.


As the car begins to descend the steep hill, however, it is apparent things are not going to end well.

The owner begins to lose control of the vehicle and soon it is accelerating too quickly – because the car has stopped working, the brakes and ignition are not engaged.

Still hanging outside of the car, the driver clings on to the door for dear life as the Honda starts to sway out of control before it crashes off the road into a ditch.

Unbelievably, the driver isn't injured, despite being thrown from the wreckage. That's more than can be said of his prized Honda CRX, which lies completely smashed off the edge of the road.
