Crossover Plows Into Stationary Mail Truck, Rolls Over

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.

    The crossover seem to not paying attention and driving faster then normal for the road conditions!

    • Jason Miller

      Only going a couple MPH faster than the cars around them. Just simply not paying attention, face probably in their phone.

  • Comp1

    Were the brakes even applied? I don’t see brake lights at all.

  • Honda NSX-R

    Did the crossover driver know that brakes exist?

  • DMax

    Retard was on the phone I bet. There’s no other explanation for this. I hope his/her driving privilege is forever revoked.

  • Bo Hanan

    How was this not a female driver?!

  • LeStori

    Putting the Upsidedown into SUV. Love it…

  • LWOAP

    Didn’t even attempt to brake, either. I mean, the mail truck had it’s hazard lights on too. Clearly someone was distracted or just not paying attention.

  • badcyclist

    I’m going to issue a minority report and say that anyone who parks their car in an active traffic lane on an unlighted, dark, and busy road is not blameless.

  • Paul

    He was texting and didn’t see the mail truck.

  • Can anyone identify the SUV(s) involved? Going completely by the tail light design, the rollover victim kinda resembles a 2016 or earlier Kia Sportage. The tail lights on the SUV that it bounded into (that manage to recover) look like a Lincoln MKC or MKX.
