(Heads up -- video is extremely graphic.)
The latest hobby among bored teens in Saudi Arabia -- where strict Muslim customs limit their opportunities to really let loose -- is drifting, and it's all fun and games until someone loses a limb. Or their life:
[It's] the "sport" of accelerating like you're trying to break the light barrier and then slamming on the brakes. Doing so creates two possible outcomes: 1) having the vehicle slide around like a crazy-cool doodlebug while the tires ferociously screech and smoke, or 2) prompting a massive car wreck that maims or kills everyone involved, often in the most gruesome way possible.
Obviously, the latter scenario is captured in this video, filmed in Riyadh on May 25. The 2012 Camry was going 125 mph when it flipped; all four occupants died instantly.
