Amazing Video Shows Toyota Prius Surfing California Mudslide

Source Instagram

A native of Dallas, Texas, Franklin took to his Instagram account earlier that morning to post a video of the rushing water prior to his wild ride.

The video was shared by Burbank Firefighters on Instagram and it is scary AF.

"It got us through hell and high water, literally".

"Man, look at California", he said in the video. "Rocks flowing, mud flowing ...everywhere, barely made it out".

But a few hours later, his housemate came downstairs to tell him the neighborhood was being evacuated. Rescue officials said numerous missing may simply have been unreachable by family and friends who reported they could not find them.

Despite the conditions, Franklin said the Prius was able to remain in control at the end of the slide."I didn't even know a Prius could hold up in nothing like that".

"We all looked out the window and it was trees, rocks, boulders and an occasional vehicle just flying by", said Ashanka Givens, his passenger. "We have to leave right now'".

The vehicle is clearly running, with the headlights on and wipers engaged, and was able to get around the curve in the hill, even as a fresh wave of mud and water engulfed it.

Washington-based North Pacific Paper Co. said Canada was dumping newsprint into the American market with unfair subsidies at home. Canada is the largest exporter of newsprint in the world, dominated by Resolute Forest Products, Kruger and Catalyst Paper Corp.

"I love the auto now", Franklin said.

The video is truly horrifying to watch, and it's no wonder the driver thought he was going to die - but he made it out, safe and sound.

"One of the cars looked like a wadded up piece of foil paper", he said.

Franklin drove slowly down the steep, curving rode through waves of rock-laden, muddy water.

"I just got pushed down the side of a hill by a wall of water and mud", he can be heard narrating.

Franklin and his girlfriend jumped in his Prius but before they could make it down Country Club Road the mud caught up with them.

Other cars were swept away and mangled. Both cars appeared severely damaged.
