Ghost Car Appears Out Of Nowhere, Causes Horrific Crash

Ghost cars are terrifying as they appear out of nowhere and usually cause an accident.

That’s the case in this dashcam video which was recorded in Warren, Michigan earlier this month. As you can see in the footage, the driver of the dashcam-equipped car is stopped at a red light next to a Mercury Mariner.

After the light turns green, both vehicles take off. Everything is fine until they cross the next intersection where the Mariner is rammed by another vehicle which appears out of nowhere. The force of the impact is pretty intense as it destroys the front of the Mariner and causes the crossover to spin at least 90° while catching some air in the process.

The ghost car then appears to hit the dashcam-equipped vehicle as debris from the first collision showers the car. The footage ends shortly thereafter, but the slow motion footage appears to show the vehicle that caused the collision was a Nissan Altima, but it’s hard to be certain as it’s only visible in a few frames.

Regardless, the uploader says the crash occurred on December 29th when the car ran a red light. The uploader goes on to say the driver also ran another red light and no one suffered any life-threatening injuries as a result of the crash.

It remains unclear why the driver ran the red light, but one commenter says she was looking at her GPS and wasn’t paying attention to the road.

    “ghost car” lol orrrrrrrr if you clearly watch, you can see a car that was in a left turn lane making a poor decision by turning too soon and crashing. but okay, let’s go with ghost car, CS!

    • Jason Miller

      Watched it 4 times. No car making any left turns on the video.

      • Jay

        Agreed.. looking closely at the camera I don’t even see a car headed toward the white ford/merc. it had to be in the field of view the whole time and took off full speed. Otherwise it is indeed a ghost car.

    Ghostly eeek. Not hardly. The other car just out of view because of the victims car blocking it from our vision jumped the gun.

    • Jason Miller

      That’s the point. You can’t see it from the camera car = ghost car.

  • kachuks

    No ghost. She was just barreling through the intersection at full speed.

    “Looking at my navigator”…this is why Georgia just enacted a law in July, 2018 that if they catch you behind the wheel AND holding an electronic device they can stop you fine you and strike one point against your drivers license

    • Adam

      We’ve had this law in Australia since 2012. We have 13 points on our licences here and if you’re caught using an electronic device you lose 5 points. If it’s used on a long weekend such as Easter then you lose 10 points.
