Holy crap.

A 22-year-old named Josh was extremely lucky not just to be alive but — somehow — to walk away uninjured after he sped through unguarded curves near Tortilla Flat, Ari. and took his 2005 BMW M3 careening off a cliff.

“I hit the mile marker and then I pretty much knew that I was going for a ride,” Josh, whose last name was not released, told KPHO news. “It all happened really fast. I just looked down and I saw what was about to happen, and that’s it.”

The driver’s caviler attitude toward the crash was amplified by his disregard for his ride:

“It was a bit of bummer, but at the end of the day, it’s just metal.”

Just metal. Did you see how fast that side airbag went off? That metal saved your life, kid.
