Audi Q5 Sinks in Dutch Canal

Distractions can be costly.

Audi bills its Q5 SUV as a true offroader. Taking things a little too literally, the owner of the compact crossover went off the road and into one of Rotterdam’s canals. According to Gnepiah - who shot the video of the sunken Audi being rescued from the water - nobody was injured in the unfortunate mishap with the driver walking away unscathed, if not a little wet. There’s no definitive word on what caused the driver to plow straight into the cold water, but clearly he was distracted by something.

The lesson to learn he is: never take your eyes off the road, especially when you’re surrounded by waterways.
