SUV Hits Flagman and Opposing Car at Toronto Street Races

This video is just making its round on social media. Must've happened last night. First time I've ever seen this happen.

Meh, all a bunch of idiots. I'm more sad that nobody called the cops on the crowd.
If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Play stupid game win stupid prize. And they picked one of the worst street to do it on.

Love that horsepower to dollar is in enthusiasts favour but way too much horse power for idiots to handle.

Highway pulls is about the only thing I’d risk doing in a high powered car. I’m really shocked not more people get run over in these stupid meets.

I once read that's why Mustangs crash so often.

It's actually an undercover cop doing a PIT manuever.

Can't see clearly in the video - the M4 door looks smashed? Surprised it still kept in straight line.

Mustang's are just unique - their bumpers are made of magnets.

It’s a stupid SUV. He was going to go off-road but the idiot flagger got in the way.

Last week 100 kms south of me: Young B.C. driver showing off drifts brand-new Ford Mustang into a river https://driving.ca/ford/auto-news/news/ ... to-a-river

Driving.ca must be from COTU, I'd guess? Cranbrook is 900 kms from the coast, semi arid and records 2200 hours of sunshine per year.

"A young driver in B.C. crashed his new car into a river after attempting to drift it — and yes, of course it was a Mustang.

The incident happened in Cranbrook, B.C., and, it being the Wet Coast, it was obviously raining at the time. Couple that with a rear-wheel-drive sports car and you have a recipe for disaster."

TrackHawk is awesome, most of their drivers are not. 130-140k MSRP, Hellcat engine, premium fuel, averages 18L/100km. The running costs of that thing are enormous. Such as badarse SUV though.

I know someone who spun out their 1st gen Viper in the dry, total mishap with the shift from 3rd to 4th, went down to 2nd instead by mistake, and 500tq immediately and unexpectedly to the rear wheels with no ABS or traction is kind of hard to tame. Very difficult cars to drive. My GT Mustang has no traction control or ABS either, have to be damn precise/deliberate with the T45 manual in it, especially with a bad trans mount, and while its fun, it would be so easy to lose it and I don't like the poor feedback of a live rear axle Mustang compared to an IRS Mustang.

Trackhawk is just a HP race to stuff the most amount of horsepower into a SUV, the transmission is absolute trash and not built to handle the amount of torque & hp.

Much too quiet to be a Trackhawk.
He shouldn't have been driving daddy's truck as he doesn't even know when to keep the wheel straight.
