Dodge Charges Into Intersection And Gets Battered By Pickup

It’s possible that the driver of this Dodge Charger failed to see as far as the that incoming Ford pickup when he pulled ahead. They had another vehicle to their left, and at that point, the Ford was in the lane furthest away.

From what we can gather, the pickup seems to have had the right of way and its driver had little reason to anticipate somebody entering the intersection the way that Dodge did.

The impact, inevitable at that point, sent the Charger spinning towards oncoming traffic, knocking over a street sign and resting against the sidewalk. A pedestrian can also be seen crossing the street right before the crash, and we hope that she wasn’t hit by any of the flying debris.

Unfortunately, the dashcam vehicle was also hit in the process, but by the pickup, which clearly had a lot of difficulty slowing down. The cammer might have already been having a bad day, since he started saying something to that extent right before the video cut off.

We should also entertain the possibility that the Charger driver simply felt the need to blindly follow the car ahead into crossing the intersection. People sometimes make that type of mistake – they see somebody pull out ahead, and figure that maybe they have time/room to do so as well.

    Of course, Florida. Virtually no-one here knows how to handle flashing lights. Flashing yellow: proceed with caution. Flashing red: treat it as a stop sign. With all the practice we get from power outages and hurricanes, you’d expect people to catch on.

      So true. I’ve never seen or heard of this happening anywhere else. KrAzYlAnD = Florida

    It’s Florida isn’t it?

    • Bo Hanan

      It’s always florida.
      The arrogance of the Dodge driver to just follow the car in front (without checking for clearance) is Florida-101. The real trick is to try and guess which country the person in the Dodge is from.

  • Randy Terpstra

    Everyone at fault here, except for the poor dash-cammer. Aren’t flashing traffic lights supposed to be treated as an all-way stop? If not, Florida may want to rethink your traffic regulations. Neither the Charger or the driver of the Ford pick up, treated the intersection, as a all-way stop..

    • Jweisberg

      The Charger had a flashing red which means stop and proceed when the road is clear. The ford had the right of way because it had the flashing yellow.

      • Mill0048

        Yep. And if you really want to get technical, the driver’s handbook says everyone has the ‘right of way’. The book defines who has to yield their ‘right of way’.

    I’m thinking; you’ve got a staff member searching for car accident videos during their summer work placement?

  • That’s in Miami, so the probability that BOTH drivers are Cubans is pretty high (no offense, I’m Cuban too), and both are at fault there, even with a blinking yellow light, the pickup truck’s driver should have been cautiously too, not speeding thru like that – he paid for his imprudence.
    Driving in Miami is a risky nightmare, the only city I’ve driven in that is worse is Mexico City, and I’ve driven in some twenty countries…

    In Ontario (and most of Canada and US), malfunctioning traffic lights usually flash red -which means all-way stop. Flashing yellow means proceed with caution (as the crossing intersection should be flashing red). i don’t think you’d ever have flashing yellow in all directions in Ontario.

    In Europe, all-way flashing yellow usually means refer to fixed signage and proceed accordingly with caution.
