The driver of the white Subaru Outback realized what they’ve done just a split second before that old Chevrolet Suburban plowed into them, causing the Japanese crossover to roll over.
Also no, the Suburban didn’t run a red light. If you squint really hard at the lights on the far-right, you can see the moment in which they change from green to yellow, and that’s when the Chevy pops into view. All the Subaru driver had to do was wait a little longer and this crash wouldn’t have happened.
What we’d like to know is whether or not the driver of the Outback actually saw the incoming vehicle, because visibility seems great and looking to your right in that intersection seems obvious. So how come they didn’t just let the Chevy go by before turning?
It’s possible they were either doing something else instead of paying attention – but since the description of the video doesn’t provide us with any information on the matter, all we can do is speculate.
As for the nature of the impact, it’s safe to say that the guy in the Suburban didn’t expect the Subaru driver to turn right in front of him, which is why it took a while for the big Chevy to come to a halt. All that momentum was sufficient so as to flip the Outback onto its roof, hopefully with no injuries to its occupants.
