A Dutch reality TV show looking for the worst driver in the Netherlands can look no further. There’s likely nobody who can top this.

<p>A Dutch reality TV show looking for the worst driver in the Netherlands can crown its champion. There’s likely nobody who can top this.</p>
<p>A contestant on “De Allerslechtste chauffeur van Nederland?,” which translates into “Who Is the Worst Driver in the Netherlands?,” a show similar to our own “Canada’s Worst Driver” series, ran roughshod behind the wheel in a cringe-inducing display of truly dodgy driving.</p>

<p>The male driver, identified only as Pim, apparently mistook the accelerator for the brake while motoring down a track for a filmed segment. In video of the incident, Pim covers his eyes as his Volvo plows into another car and mows down a cameraman as well as the show’s host, Ruben Nicolai.</p>
<p>The collision was bad enough to mangle the windshield and activate the airbags. </p>
<p>Astonishingly, the driver as well as the two female passengers in the car weren’t seriously injured.</p>
<p>The host of the show spent some time in the hospital, but he, too, was okay.</p>
