Watch - Subaru Driver Posts Video of Himself Tumbling Off a Mountain Road

Man cheats death diving off Angeles Crest Highway.

Angeles Crest Highway is a favorite among auto enthusiasts looking for a reprieve from Los Angeles traffic, but like any mountain road, it demands careful attention. One man found this out the hard way when he plummeted down the side of the highway going too fast in his 2004 Subaru Forester XT. He lived to tell about it, and now has released a video of the entire incident.

The dashcam video, posted earlier this week on YouTube, captures the event that actually took place a full year ago. It starts off normally enough, until the driver pushes on the gas to speed through a tunnel. Suddenly, the driver loses control and the car falls nose-first off the mountain. The video shows the entire heart-pounding descent of the vehicle.

In the description beneath the video, the driver posts a recount of that day's events. "Luckily for me, I landed on a rock wall that was part of a drainage pipe that went through the mountain. It was the only horizontally level piece on an extremely steep sloped hill. Had I spun off a few feet before or after, I'd be dead," he wrote. He says his main reason for posting the footage is so other drivers can learn from his near-fatal mistake.

Brace yourself for the video below.
