A video shared on Instagram showed one such instance, where a Dodge Challenger was in the middle of performing a donut, a popular street stunt. It involves the car doing 360°a around one spot. The driver of the Challenger lost control and smashed a man who was on the sidelines watching.

The speed and impact of the crash were so hard that it sent the man flying, and he, too, did a 360° flip while he landed on the floor. Thankfully, the man did not get himself seriously injured and stood up immediately after the crash. The crash caused considerable damage to the car’s rear end. A part of it was hanging from it behind, but the driver seemed unaffected and continued to attempt the donut.
