Rally Car Driver Walks Away After Being Inches Away From Death

Rally Car Driver Walks Away After Being Inches Away From Death


Total Pro Sports – It is surprising that this doesn’t happen more often in rally car racing, as the drivers fly down narrow streets at blistering speeds or around tight mountain bends.

When it does happen though, the close proximity of trees, other objects or even missing a turn and flying off a Mountain side, like rally Car driver Jari-Matti Latvala experienced back in early April. Making one slip-up in this sport is definitely a life threatening situation.

This rally car driver found that out quickly in his crash, but was lucky enough to be able to walk away and live to talk about it.  Along with the driver, you would have to think that spectators are also incredibly lucky as well.  It appears there were many in close enough proximity to witness the accident, but no one was hurt.  Just another dance with lady luck I guess.
