Distracted driving is one of the major causes of accidents that happen on the roads today. A scooter rider crashed into a parked car while he was gazing at cars driving down the road.
In a video that was posted online, a man riding a scooter is off to the side of the screen admiring the vehicles around him, including a cherry red Ferrari. After noticing a loud superbike, the scooter rider attempted to catch a glimpse of the vehicle, taking his eyes completely off the road.
The moment he turned his head around, it was too late to apply the brakes and he slammed into a Maruti Dzire cab parked on the side of the road. The scooter and vehicle both had some significant damage from the crash but no one was seriously injured.
The video has since received over 18,000 views on YouTube, along with several comments on the incident. One user commented: “When you see your dream car, the reality hits you hard.”
Another wrote: “The road wasn’t exactly crowded but somehow the scooter guy managed to use all that space to crash into the parked car. Was he distracted by that Ferrari??”
Whether it was the superbike or supercar that caught his attention, next time it’s likely this driver will be keeping his eyes on the road at all costs.
