    WOW thats scary. It filled up so fast! I always worry about that when going over bridges and stuff. Water is like the number 1 killer from natural disaster type things (not the same thing here...but water is so powerful), isn`t it?

    Tt was a race, there is no speed limit in a race. Im not sure that the Dippoo knows whose commenting, but see, what a race is, is you try to go faster than the other competitors to get to the finish first. that is what a race is. This has been another lesson in common sense brought to you by Mr. Milligram Smile :)

    It was a race, the road was wet, he was going to fast to manage the turn (he turned his steering wheel but skidded off the road).

    They drove into the lake becuase the cars motor stalled, which means no power steering or brakes which makes turning or evening stopping the car in time impossible, especially because the roads were wet and they hydroplaned at a high speed. They were competing in a rally event which was 100% legal and therefore were not breaking any laws. For fun go out and put your car in neutral (with the motor off)after pumping your brakes til the brake pedal feels firm and try to turn or even stop the car after someone pushes it, damn near impossible even at low speeds. So please don`t be so quick to call them idiots.

    These guys are in a rally-race and are by no ways Idiots. The driver lost control/grip of the tyres and couldn`t find traction in the mud/gravel. You can obviously tell he tried to steer the car left w/ opposite lock but to no avail.

    Holy crap, that would be scary. I`ve always been scared of drowning. It looks like it was a pretty shallow lake because the car only filled up half-way and then stopped. Good thing, too. Eee.

    They ARE idiots. Anyone who does rally racing is an idiot. Let`s strap ourselves into a large metal container on wheels and see how fast we can make it go. Losers.

    It wasn`t altered in any way -- I saw it on TV when it happened. TOTALLY friggin` scary, though. I agree with those who`ve said it before: I can`t imagine a worse way to go.

    For those who don`t understand sarcasm, no kidding the video isn`t photoshopped. You can`t photoshop videos. I was mocking all the others who call "photoshop" on everything.

    The scary thing is when you car is half-way filled with water, you can`t open the door. You have to let the water go over your head before the pressure equalizes so you can get out.

    I saw this show where a guy demonstrated how to get out of a car underwater, and he had this spring-loaded "punch" tool that you use to break the window. But who is going to "just happen" to have one of those in their car???
