Citroen Van Goes Airborne After Hitting Roundabout At High Speed

Either producers have already starting production on a new Mission Impossible movie, or somebody seriously messed up what should have been a simple left turn at a roundabout.

The terrifying incident occurred at Norfolk, UK. The driver of the silver Citroen Berlingo was clearly speeding and weaving through traffic. Unfortunately, they must have missed the road sign indicating that a roundabout was coming up ahead.

As soon as the van split the cammer and the larger white van, it was already over. At that point, making the left turn would have been very difficult, if not impossible, so the only thing left to do would have been to hit the brakes and hang on for dear life.

Due to the sizable incline and the van’s considerable momentum, the van was propelled upwards forcefully. It really would have made for a pretty spectacular stunt, if it wasn’t a very violent accident.

We can only hope that the driver and any potential passengers weren’t seriously injured, especially since the Berlingo hit the ground hard and, in all likelihood (the dashcam doesn’t provide more footage), rolled over.

    Are you sure that’s not Hazzard county’s delivery service?

    • ChrisInIL

      Since this is the UK, this could have been one fo the Dukes of Hazzard, or possibly an earl……

  • GobbleUp

    Driver filming it keeps going. Classy.

    • KareKakk

      Almost better behaviour than stopping and instead filming the wreck with injured people inside. Local police here more or less literally have to shovel bystanders away from accident scenes nowadays.

      • LeStori

        Why would you call the police and emergency. It is always more important to film the accident than call for help….

    • LeStori

      No where to stop safely. Only a fool gets themselves killed trying to save another fool.
