Alas, poor Subaru, we knew you well. It was only a matter of time before someone came forward with an in-car video explaining exactly what happened to that Subaru Impreza that was stranded on the Miner's Gulch trail in Colorado. As you can imagine, the short flick is filled with plenty of shaky-hand-cam action as well as the painful sound of aluminum bouncing off of cast aluminum bouncing off of stone. We're not entirely sure what this Subaru did to deserve this kind of torture, but we applaud its pluck for surviving as long as it did.

The owner, Alexander Pringle, was apparently forced to abandon his valiant steed after he punctured the oil pan. It didn't take regular trail goers long to relieve the vehicle of its seats and stereo. Fortunately, the Colorado Trail Patrol was kind enough to pull the lifeless hulk off of the trail so that other, more properly outfitted off-road enthusiasts could continue to enjoy the scenery. Hit the jump to see the video for yourself (we've included the cringe-inducing, previously shown towing footage as well).

      Why are you guys posting this stuff? If I want to see videos of people destroying their cars, I'll just go straight to youtube. There's no shortage of those idiots out there, and none of it is hard to find. I'll admit, the monster truck tug-pull was interesting, but there's nothing about this idiot that makes him more special or interesting than any other idiot.

      This video was already around when the first video went up on here. But either way it's just ridiculous how stupid this guy is.

      I'm not 100% sure about this but that may have been a field car based on its state. It's got a busted windshield, flat black and white spray paint and no bumper. The only things that make me question this idea are the plate on the back and the state of the interior. Either way, clearly not worthy of that car.

      I thought the car got graffitied on the trail? Looks like it already is to me. I would have enjoyed being the recovery vehicle because I would have put it in low range and not stopped dragging.
