The Chrysler Crossfire is the epitome of the ill-fated “merger of equals” between Chrysler and Daimler-Benz, but there’s one less of them on the road thanks to a driver whose skill didn’t meet their expectations.
As you can see in this dashcam video, a Crossfire was cruising in the left hand lane when a slower moving Chevrolet Impala changed lanes in front of them. Instead of slowing down, the Crossover’s driver decided to cut across two lanes of traffic to get ahead of everyone.
This turned out to be a horrible decision as the driver lost control after successfully darting between two other vehicles. There’s no word on what caused this to happen, but it’s possible the driver simply overcorrected.
Regardless, the Crossfire rapidly smashes into the concrete divider. This spews wreckage across the highway and the car eventually comes to a stop in the center lane.
The driver of the Crossfire slowly exits the vehicle and we can get a glimpse of the model which has suffered significant front end damage. As a couple cars stop to check on the driver, the owner of the dashcam-equipped vehicle calls the Ohio State Highway Patrol to report the crash.
There’s no word on the condition of the driver, but the accident occurred two years ago and recently resurfaced on Reddit. However, the fact they got out of the vehicle suggests they were unharmed or only received minor injuries
