Talk about a close call! During a recent rainstorm in Taiwan's Badouzi Coastal Park, a mudslide and accompanying colossal boulder nearly flattened a car on the roadway below. Fortunately for everyone involved, the iceberg-sized rock stops just short of the car and its very lucky occupants (hey, maybe they should play the lottery).

Fortunately for us, the whole incident was captured on another driver's dash cam, making for one insane video clip. Check out the full video below for this disaster movie scene come-to-life, and as ThisIsColossal points out, pay special attention to the mountain peak at 00:03 to see the boulder begin its descent.

      Fate smiles on you when the force of water and mud push you out of the way so that a 15 billion pound boulder doesn't erase you.

        Call me glass half empty, but I'd think that fate screwed me since I would have missed nearly dying and having my car destroyed had I left 60 seconds later or earlier that morning. Seems like bad luck to me.

      Not captured on camera: the subsequent mudslide that took place *inside* the car.

      You can escape the mighty wrath of Mother Nature, but even half a planet away in a remote jungle island, you can't escape Mcdonald's!

      Anyone ever consider getting a dash cam? A constantly-recording video of your travels might come in handy someday, when you think about it.

      Wonder how much body damage the white car sustained from the force of the water hitting it. It got slammed.

        Considering the hazard flashers started immediately after the impact the side airbags must have deployed...

      Wow, that is crazy! Good thing they avoided the huge boulder though.

      Did that drive try to push that boulder for a sec?

      Roof strength crash test is meaningless here.
