This video from YouTube, shows a car hit by a large wrecking ball, is fast approaching viral status. The video description claims that a “Dodge minivan that entered a closed construction zone in Manhattan was accidentally hit and flipped over by the wrecking ball as onlookers watch in horror and ran for cover. Driver escaped with minor injuries.”
Everything about the video makes us think this is a fake. A few questions that arise: Why are they using a wrecking ball close to a Manhattan city street? Is there a voice yelling cut? Is there a flipping mechanism underneath the car? Would it be possible to survive from the impact? Why are there no news reports on the incident?
Is this a viral from Dodge? Or is the, “OMG! Car Hit and Flipped By Wrecking-Ball in NYC!” video for real? What’s your take, and why?
