The Worst Ebike Driver In China Crashes Head On Into Van Then Splashes in a Vat of . . .

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.

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 don’t think so. The guy was probably just drunk.

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