A car jumping a bridge may look good on TV or in the movies, but real life tells a different story.

Watch as this motorist in the Netherlands tries to jump a bridge as it closes. We give him an 'A' for effort, but an 'F' for execution because he didn't even come close.

Somehow, the 56-year-old driver was not hurt in the crash. No, the injury came later when he broke a few ribs and punctured his lung while getting out of the car and swimming to safety.

Officials fished his car out of the water where it will either be rendered impossible to drive or await the world's biggest towel to dry it.

The man, meanwhile, went to the hospital, where doctors no doubt treated him and then encouraged him to leave the crazy car flying to Hollywood stunt folks. Or maybe this guy.
