Even though this accident occurred in the early hours of the morning, we can’t think of any good excuse why somebody wouldn’t see a large white mail truck parked by the side of the road.
Granted, it was perhaps not the best place to stop, especially on such a poorly lit road, but it’s not like the person behind the wheel of the crossover didn’t have a set of headlights. Either way, this is a really rough one so hopefully that car was good at sustaining small to moderate overlap frontal damage.
Upon impact, the crossover was propelled upwards and to the side, colliding with another SUV and then flipping over onto its roof. As for the mail truck, it was shunted off the road and towards some trees – good thing nobody was standing around in its immediate vicinity.
We would have liked it if the camera kept rolling to confirm people stopping to help, but we assume that’s what the driver of the dashcam car did.
This crash will probably serve as a painful reminder to the driver at fault, to always scan the road ahead, especially when the sun is hidden beyond the horizon.
