The rise of dashboard cameras or ‘dash cams’ has soared over the last few years and they’ve caught some pretty ridiculous footage along the way. Whether it be a car hitting a bull trying to mount a cow, footage of an SUV nosediving into another car or a video of a horrific plane crash in Afghanistan, they’re constantly catching something outrageous happening that would otherwise never been seen again.
