Apparently, there are two kinds of people. One, that celebrated world environment day by vowing to wash cars without water and other such holier than thou-ness. The others, like this particular Prius drive, more to our taste took the fight for the environment to the streets. He not only crashed his green mobile into the monstrous Brabus G500 4×4², he managed to flip it over in the process. Not precisely what we had in mind when we said, electrics and hybrid will be taking over the streets!
We are only kidding though, the accident which took place on Sloane Street -London’s Super Car Central -- was just an odd result of a regular traffic accident. Reports on the accident, however, are still unclear with a hand-full of onlookers saying it happened as a result of the Brabus running a red light, and the Prius meeting it right in the B-Pillar. Demeaning as it is, to have your Goliath G500 Brabus ultra-rare truck upended, the insult to injury was doled out by the fact that the Prius -- minus a bumper and some airbags that need replacing -- was still drivable while the 4×4² will probably have to be written off entirely.
Luckily both drivers, walked away without much in the form of injuries. However, it’s likely that the Brabus owner might need to be treated for a severely deflated ego. Point being, think twice the next time you crack a Prius joke, there might be one lurking around the next junction.
