Accelerating over gaps in opening bridges only works in action movies, as this driver in the Netherlands found out when he inadvertently ended up in the river below.

CCTV footage captures the car speeding towards a fast-increasing gap in the middle of a bridge in Bruinisse, as the structure retracts to allow a vessel through.

Unfortunately the gap is too wide for the vehicle to drive across and the car smashes into the end of the retracting bridge, before falling into the water below.

Miraculously, the man was not seriously hurt in the accident. According to Dutch police, he swam out of the car himself and only sustained injuries after trying to slipping while trying to climb out of the water onto a concrete ledge, suffering broken ribs and a punctured lung.
