Kilauea’s lava swallows Ford Mustang on Hawaii’s Big Island

Nature 1, Mankind 0. Watch this timelapse video as lava pouring out from Hawaii’s Mount Kilauea consumes a Ford Mustang parked by the side of a road.

The Mount Kilauea on Hawaii’s Big Island has been especially activate over the last week after a series of tremors and earthquakes. Lava spewing from the volcano has so far destroyed 24 homes and caused the evacuation of parts of the island.

In this video we see the lava slowing encroaching on the car, set it blaze, and then just consume it.
