Eight-time DM rally champion Karl-Åge Jensen was driving in the 2008 Danish Rally Championship. Pushing his Subaru at high speeds through the empty suburbs, the rear end of the car drifted onto the grass. Coming across a left bend, the car began drifting uncontrollably.

The amateur photographer who shot the video also seemed absolutely stunned by it. He never expected to see anything like it, ever. The car, moving at a supersonic speed, lost its balance altogether and barreled into a house. Though it landed upside down after the dramatic crash, the driver, Jensen, was completely unharmed.
