Besides these activities, Grand Theft Auto 5 has a wide range of vehicles, including many sports cars, luxury cars, trucks, motorbikes, and even defense vehicles like armored cars, jet planes, tanks, and much more. Players regularly test their limits by driving these vehicles at maximum speeds through challenging terrains.
Many people often go through terrible vehicular crashes during their driving adventures in Grand Theft Auto 5, like Reddit user jonboy3940. The user uploaded a video on the social media platform showing a near-death experience that they ultimately survived. The video begins with jonboy3940 playing as Franklin and riding a motorcycle in Vinewood Hills. They take the bike off the standard route for an off-roading experience, stop for a moment to wear the helmet, and begin speeding down the mountain’s slope. The bike quickly reaches its top speed and jumps several feet before crashing into a house beside the road.
Surprisingly, jonboy3940 manages to retain the bike’s balance after the collision and continues riding at full throttle. Ultimately, the user crashes into a second house on the opposite side, throwing Franklin and the bike several feet away. Typically, a crash like this would mean certain death for the player in GTA 5, but miraculously, Franklin lands in a swimming pool instead of bumping into a hard object, eventually surviving the ordeal.
As expected, the post received widespread acclaim on Reddit, as seen by more than 1,400 upvotes and many positive comments. Most users believed the original poster was lucky to survive the crash, while a few thought Franklin’s helmet was why he survived. One person named R3VV1ND commented, “glad you stopped to put a helmet on.”
Some Reddit users also reminded the original poster of Franklin’s special ability, which could’ve been utilized to maneuver the bike between the two houses carefully. For those who don’t know, Franklin Clinton is one of the three main protagonists of Grand Theft Auto 5, and each has a special ability. Franklin can use his ability to slow down time while driving, which improves his handling and allows him to get out of tricky situations.
Grand Theft Auto 5 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
