Camaro Thinks It’s A Mustang, Crashes Leaving Car Meet

Every time somebody crashes while leaving a car meet or any sort of automotive event, it’s actually Mustang drivers that look bad, even when there’s no Mustang in sight.

Unfair you say? We reckon those half a dozen Mustangs crashing into each other leaving that car meet in Dubai a few weeks back earned us at least another year or so of using them as a reference point for these types of incidents.

With that in mind, this white Ford Mustang looks a lot like a Chevrolet Camaro, doesn’t it? It’s uncanny, really. They got the styling right and even the badge – a clear case of blue oval transitioning into a beige bowtie.

On a serious note though, the driver of this sixth-generation Camaro was both unlucky as well as completely irresponsible. The accident took place in Clitheroe, England (just outside of Blackburn), and speed was definitely an issue.

To make matters worse, somebody in a Kia decided to make a right turn at precisely the wrong moment. In case they actually saw the Camaro when it first pulled out, it’s possible they thought they would have plenty of time to complete the turn before the American muscle car would reach them. No such luck.

As for what resulted from the impact, you can clearly see at least one deployed airbag, severe lateral damage and what we can only assume is irreparable front axle damage. The car was a write off.
