Giant boulder narrowly misses car in Taiwan

Insane footage has emerged showing a driver narrowly escaping death by mere inches during a rainstorm.

Video footage from one of the most harrowing near misses ever recorded has appeared online. Originally posted on Reddit, the video was filmed from the dash-cam of a car driving along a road in Taiwan during heavy rain.

A few moments in to the footage a plume of mud and rock can be seen hurtling down from steep cliffs on the right-hand side, landing on the road and knocking the white car sideways. When the dust settles however the true extent of the danger can be seen - a gigantic boulder teetering on it's edge, mere inches away from crushing the car and anyone inside it.

While the driver of the white car was lucky this time, mudslides and falling rocks claim the lives of several dozen people a year in Taiwan where steep cliffs and heavy rain make accidents of this nature all too common.

Was there any estimate on the weight of the boulders??

I'll bet that one is an easy 10-15 tons

If its not time for you to die, not even a few ton of boulder will kill you. Still can't believe it. Seems like something out of a final destination movie except the driver lives. He should buy the lotto or something. At least he got an excuse to get a new car.

Well, there's something you don't see everyday! Clean shorts were probable in order for the driver!

He would be better off keeping his money; statistically one "lucky" event has no bearing on another. But an event like this would sure get someone thinking about their own mortality.

Wow, I whinge when pebbles get catapulted to my windscreen from cars ahead of me. Feeling a little sheepish about that right now.
