If you think that people in China drive their cars without a notion of their own mortality, then you probably think many of those on ebikes have a death wish. Though it is not uncommon to see all kinds of insane and sometimes death-defying maneuvers on these electric bikes, the guy in the below video has to be the absolute worse driver in the country. Yes, he ran into a van, then crashed into a car, then crashed head on into another van, then smashed through a gate and ended with a splash in a vat of some brown liquid stuff (sewage? mud? sludge?).
There had to be something wrong with this guy — drunk, mentally deranged, scared — as, no, most ebike drivers in China are not nearly this bad.
It is my impression that this happened in Lanzhou, in China’s Gansu province.

I’ve seen this video a few times already on facebook… but I’ve yet managed to confirm the source? Is it possible the video is a fake? I mean, I know this is China but it’s surreal…

I know it’s wrong to laugh at other people’s misfortunes but that’s pretty damn hilarious if you ask me.
