Jeep Driver Spins On Black Ice, Somehow Avoids Hitting Anything!

Because black ice is pretty much invisible to drivers it is extremely dangerous, as the person behind the wheel of this red Jeep Grand Cherokee found out.

Normally, people who lose control of their vehicles tend to consider themselves unlucky. In this case though, spinning like that without leaving the road or impacting other cars was actually pretty fortunate.

From what we can tell, as the Jeep crossed over in front of the dashcam car, its driver had already the brakes, which tends to make matters worse when you’re driving on slippery surfaces. Anyway, the SUV spun around 360-degrees twice before the driver managed to regain some sort of control, gently sliding the car back towards the first lane, and continuing on their journey.

According to the description, the incident occurred on New Year’s Eve in Abilene, Texas, where temperatures have dipped below freezing a few times in recent weeks.

    The guy in the jeep probably needs to change his pants!

      At least that gave him a heated seat for a little while. Then again, the seat was probably destroyed….by poop.

      No they don’t. They got lucky. They caused that to happen by changing lanes so quickly then hitting the brakes.

      You don’t like VW (or is it a scorned lover?) and you don’t like Jeep (knockback?).
      Which make(s) do you like?

    Black ice is no joke. A friend skidded a tracked APC on it in Germany when he was in the army. 4WD certainly won’t save you when all wheels lose traction.
