A daredevil white van driver has been caught on camera slamming on the brakes so hard his vehicle tipped forward into a ‘headstand’.
Dramatic footage filmed in Christchurch, New Zealand, at about 12.30am on Sunday morning [Jan 28] reveals the dangerous stunt – known as a ‘stoppie’ – nearly backfiring on the driver when the van was left balancing vertically on its bonnet and almost tipped completely upside down.
The video has racked up more than 121,000 views since it was posted to social media by a shocked bystander – who said there was no harm done as no one was injured – shortly after he filmed it.
New Zealand Police confirmed they were aware of the video and would ‘follow up as is appropriate’.
The 21-year-old Christchurch mechanic who filmed the video, who asked not to be named, said: “We were just parked up just spinning yarns, standing there. All of a sudden this van came out of nowhere and started doing stoppies.”
