First of all, so you don't watch this in complete terror, know this: the driver in this video of a car driving off the highway made it out safely. Subaru owner/photographer/not-dead-guy James Shaw Jr. posted this video—which was originally taken a year ago today—as a cautionary tale. While driving on the Angeles Crest Highway, Shaw decided to speed up in a tunnel, because, as he puts it:

As an auto enthusiast, when you have a nice, relatively fast car with a loud exhaust, you tend to like tunnels. They make your exhaust sound that much better, sort of like singing in the shower…

But what Shaw didn't realize was that the road curved right at the tunnel's exit, and he was going way too fast to make the turn. That lead to this harrowing driving video:
