Moment when the doors are ripped off the car because the driver doesn’t brake properly and the ramp rolls
Parking failed! Moment when the doors of the car are torn after the driver does not apply the brake properly and rolls backwards out of the gate with a child in it
- The man in Phuket, Thailand tried in vain to stop the car from rolling backwards
- The car lost both front doors after rolling back onto the road
- Both the driver and two passengers were uninjured, including a child who was in the car when it slipped backwards
This is when the doors were ripped off a car as it rolled backwards onto the road thanks to a poorly applied parking brake.
Footage from home security shows the driver and another person desperately trying to stop the car – with a child in it – as it pulls down the sloping driveway in Phuket, Thailand.
But they can’t stop the two open doors from crashing into the gate posts on the property before the vehicle comes to a stop.
The footage starts with the man pulling into the driveway. He gets out without closing his door and a woman comes out of the house to greet him.
She greets a child in the car when the Prius suddenly begins to roll backwards.
The man and woman try to prevent the car from rolling backwards onto the road by holding onto the open doors.
The Toyota’s doors then snap as they hit the entry pillars and roll into an empty road before the husband and wife rescue the child.

The driver kept counting his lucky stars because there were no oncoming traffic on the road, otherwise this parking blunder could have led to tragedy.
The driver and passenger narrowly avoided being crushed by the doors of the 1.53-ton Prius as they tried to stop it.
The video was uploaded to YouTube and many said they were not impressed with the driver in question.
Comments below the video noted that the man’s attempt to stop the car from rolling on the road could have cost him his life.

This came after he failed to apply his handbrake so commentators saw a double fault on his part.
One wrote: ‘Both people outside the car have a terrible survival instinct.
“As soon as the car starts moving, they come CLOSER to the vehicle and almost get crushed between the doors and the wall.
Also, why didn’t the driver hit the brakes?
Another commenter joked, “They certainly don’t make Toyotas like they used to!”
