After seeing this crash, you might think twice about speeding when the road is slippery.
Regardless of whether your vehicle is FWD, RWD or AWD, when you fail to adjust your speed to the conditions of the road, chances are you’re heading for trouble. As far as we can tell, that’s what happened here as that Infiniti FX was definitely moving way faster than it should have.
Thankfully, there were no fatalities, which is surprising considering the force of the impact.
According to the description of the video, aside from the FX and the X3, two other cars suffered damages during the crash, including the dashcam car. Apparently, the hit was so powerful that the BMW was propelled backwards by nearly 20 meters (65 feet).
Now, what we find particularly disturbing (aside from everything else regarding this crash), was the fact that the wheels on the FX appear to be straight, almost as if the driver wasn’t trying to avoid the impact. Initially, the car does turn slightly to the right, but even if this was a case of speeding + understeering due to lack of grip, the front wheels should have still been facing towards the turn, right?
