That's a major "Oops!"

Norwegian rally driver Petter Solberg and his co-driver Chris Patterson had a narrow escape during the recent Rallye de France 2012.  Here are three video clips of the incident, first from the point of view of the spectators;  second, from a helicopter;  and finally, from inside the car.

I hope he bought a few lottery tickets after that, while his luck was still running hot!  I wonder what the vineyard owner had to say about his vanquished vines?
