There are two ways of learning that speeding through a quiet neighbourhood is never a good idea, and unfortunately for this Subaru driver, they chose the hard way.
With an aftermath that looks strangely reminiscent of this iconic gif, you know some serious speed was involved.
Adding insult to injury, the pictures of the crash's aftermath went viral as soon as the internet saw them — and it's easy to see why.
Posting about the crash on Facebook, Allan Keith revealed what happened outside his house:
"So this just happened right in front of our house on a 30 mph road. Yes that is a complete engine and exhaust sitting in our neighbors driveway. The man wasn’t wearing a seatbelt and was ejected out of the vehicle as well. The car was a Subaru WRX."
"The driver only suffered a severe concussion, broken ribs and a bruised hip," he added.
Considering that it is a 30mph (50km/h) restricted street, it's safe to assume that the driver probably was probably doing a lot more than that.
Though the driver was ejected on impact, the rest of the car seemed to be in pretty good shape, considering the speed and force of the impact.
The driver's injuries may be a little more severe than what Keith's "only" hints at, but he is still lucky to be alive after being thrown from the car.
If anything, this bizarre aftermath serves as a reminder to keep all hooning on the track, and not on public roads.
