This is how easily one mistake can get compounded into another, leading to what can only be described as a seriously scary crash.
Even though we don’t know why the driver of the red Nissan Micra overtook that box truck using the shoulder, he/she really was to blame for the accident than ensued.
It might have been a medical emergency, or (even worse) it’s possible the Micra was racing the silver sedan on the left, but in any case, it was definitely the wrong thing to do
What happened next is, as you can see, pretty self-explanatory: the driver of the Micra lost control and hit a ditch, flipping over and landing violently back onto the road.
We really hope that whoever was driving the Nissan, as well as any passengers that might have been on board, made it out unharmed. The good news is that the third-generation Micra is actually a reasonably safe car, having earned a four-star EuroNCAP rating before the independent organization changed its rating system and active safety tech was taken into consideration. In an accident of this magnitude, though, all bets are off, four stars or not…
