Terrifying dash cam footage shows a YouTube user by the name of TurboFoz driving his car off the side of a mountain.

He posted the video on Jan. 4 of this year, exactly one year after the incident.
"I'm primarily posting this in an attempt to help others learn from my mistakes," TurboFoz wrote in the video’s description. 
Footage shows the driver accelerating his vehicle through a tunnel, unaware a curve in the road is coming up ahead. After he exits the tunnel, the motorist applies his breaks and loses traction, sliding to the left (view the clip below).
His vehicle hits a bern and flies off the edge, flipping on the way down. A large boulder fortunately prevents him from toppling even further down the mountain.
“This is a reminder to be safe, pay attention and know the road before you try to have 'fun' on it,” he wrote. “I failed on all three of those accounts and it nearly cost me my life.”
