If you find yourself in doubt about anything when driving, for instance if you’re worried you’ll miss your exit, the best thing you can do is not panic, or else you risk making bad decisions.
This crash occurred recently in San Francisco, California, and as you see courtesy of somebody’s dashcam, the driver of that SUV steered directly into the center divider.
At first, it almost looks as if the car is slowly inching towards the divider, which might indicate that the driver was aware of the fast-approaching exit. Then again, if they were, why wouldn’t they steer in the right direction? We could speculate and throw all sorts of scenarios out there, from texting to nodding off, or perhaps some type of medical issue, and we’d be none the wiser.
Either way, the impact was so violent, it caused the vehicle to flip over. We can only hope that its occupants were wearing their seat belts, the airbags deployed and that nobody was seriously injured.
What made this worse is that, in that part of the road, it was nigh impossible for other motorists to pull over and help, so the occupants of the SUV would probably have to wait for emergency services to arrive.
