Executing a perfect donut isn’t as simple as smashing the throttle and cranking the wheel. There’s actually a delicate balance to managing oversteer and understeer, and unfortunately, many of the folks that show up at sideshows don’t have the skills needed for such activities. That’s certainly the case for the driver behind the wheel of the Chevy Camaro in the following video.
For those readers who may be unaware, a sideshow (also known as a street takeover) is a type of (usually illegal) automotive exhibition where cars burn rubber and perform donuts in front of a crowd. Sometimes, these exhibitions can take place in public at an intersection. Passengers are frequently seen hanging out the window, and stunts are encouraged. As is typically the case with illegal car stuff, sideshows can be very dangerous, as well.
That certainly turned out to be the case for the folks attending the sideshow featured in this video. The video opens up with a Chevy Camaro trying to get sideways in front of a crowd as a Ford Mustang does the same. The location appears to be a vacant back lot, so at least the shenanigans aren’t at some intersection on a busy city street.
As the video progresses, we see a passenger hanging out of the Chevy Camaro window. The Camaro driver appears to be struggling between understeer and oversteer before they finally get the tail to kick out. However, as the Chevy travels sideways, we see the tail suddenly rotate right into a crowd of people.
The people try to jump out of the way, but it’s too late for most of them as the rear of the Chevy Camaro collides with several onlookers, knocking them into the dirt. It’s likely the collision resulted in a few injuries.
As the Chevy Camaro tries to speed away, it collides with the rear end of the Ford Mustang, which just so happened to come to a rest in front of the scene of the collision.
