    Wow he was a lucky one...
    Trees are good for a lot of things. We were taught in the police academy that if we are getting shot at the best place to hide is behind a BAT or a Big A$$ Tree.
    I guess the same can be said about this too...if a car is coming at you hide behind a BAT.

    I`m always amazed at how so few people are killed at Rallies, standing in large crowds right next to the road. He obviously knew that he was in a major danger spot, hence why he was standing behind a tree. So he`s not THAT lucky.

    But we all owe our lives to trees anyway.

    They always advise people at rallies to stand on the inside of corners, as your far less likely to be hit. Trouble is people are stupid and stand on the outside for better views. The guy should have known better as he looked like a steward too.

    well he did run... didn`t you see him quickly duck under the tape?... but then it hit the tree.. so not much point in running... He had a spurt of life saving engergy... then realised he was doomed so gave up into a jog.. then omg tree saved him.. so he gave a little jog... What most people don`t realise is the driver died.. if it wasn`t for the tree he would of survived.... (joking, obviously)...

    I know how that guy feels. I was saved by a tree once. I was walking down the street one night when a mugger came around a corner and held me at gunpoint. Just then a tree came down from the sky and beat the poo out of him. The tree then took me in its limbs and flew me to the top of the highest building and we watched the moon as it shimmered across the surface of the bay. I felt so safe, like I wanted to get lost it its limbs. God bless trees.

    jogging? it looks like the guy couldnt even see the car until it was on its side, and when in that position thats basically as fast as you can react. This guy was really smart to stay behind a tree in a rally. I dont know about the driver though it was a really hard it.one man`s savior is another`s killer

    It`s a stick to hold the tape, and I don`t think it being there did much to stop the car.
