This highly avoidable crash took place last weekend in Madison, Wisconsin, where the driver of a black Dodge Charger engaged in an aggressive overtaking maneuver, colliding with a stationary tow truck and causing significant damage to his car.
The footage was captured via dashcam by somebody who eventually pulled over to help, only to find that the Charger driver was allegedly nowhere to be found. In fact, here’s what happened according to the cammer:
“I was heading home when I noticed a car driving erratically. I stayed behind him for a little while then had an opportunity to move away from him. As I was attempting to move away from him, he decided to switch lanes once again and crashed into the tow truck.”
“As his car was coming to a stop, I witnessed him going from the driver seat to the backseat. I parked my car and ran over to his car to check on people in the car. Another lady came over as well to help and asked where the driver was. The two men, now in the backseat, claimed they did not know where the driver was.”
If that’s not a whooper of a story, we don’t know what is. If true, then the driver of the Charger really didn’t want to accept responsibility for what happened, although lying to a fellow motorist is one thing, and to the authorities another. So for his sake, we hope he came clean when it mattered.
While the description of the video doesn’t give us many extra clues regarding the guy’s age, his ill-advised overtaking maneuver looked like something an inexperienced driver would pull.
